is there a sequel to this? I've been told there has been, but I've also been told there isn't. Could someone please tell me the truth?

There is no currently-completed sequel, but one is in the works. Perhaps if it comes out around the time of the new movie, the stories could be filmed back-to-back! Be watching for "Remembrance of Books Past," the title of the F451 sequel.

Allright, I'll bite.
Is Mr. Bradbury writing it?
If not, who?
What's the story?
Where did this info come from?

The premise of the book, how he got the idea for the story, and a description of his first attempts at writing it, appear in one of the essays contained in "Yestermorrow." In that essay he said he attempted it, decided he'd need the help of George Bernard Shaw and several other deceased geniuses, and shoved it in a file. I guess now he's taken it back out and is writing it all by himself.

Thanks, Dandelion.
Could you (or anyone) give me the Reader's Digest version? I don't have "Yestermorrow."
Thanks Again,
Greentown

Suggested by Bernard Berenson, a famous art critic and mutual admirer of Ray's: what would happen to the classics if taken from the solid realm of print and committed to the imperfect form of human memory? How would they sound if remembered all wrong (which is actually the most likely outcome--almost NO ONE has a photographic memory, and even those with good rote memories can forget or get things wrong.) The only thing of which I'm not sure is how the comparison could be made if the original no longer existed. After all, not every reader will be familiar with every classic. But I'm sure Ray will figure out something!

Well, here's the thread with my description of "Remembrance of Books Past," but I can't find the thread where it was first posted about, or by who. Anyone want to own up and add anything as to its progress or status?

Dandy, have you a copy of "Life of Fiction." I thought I read something about "rough manuscripts" with pages done for both 451 and DW (topics here on many occasions). I will go back and check on this.

The Jonathan R. Eller and William F. Touponce compilation offers a bibliography of his works that goes back to as early as 1939, I believe. The amount of researched titles documented is mind boggling. The unpublished writings and outlined concepts alone would undoubtedly fill volumes. There is a whole section listing everything chronologically, an editor's nightmare!! Anyone else with comments on this recently released RB reference?

Any word on Sam Weller's long awaited official biography? I am sure it will be outstanding.

Yes, it (Life of Fiction) is superb! The amount of detail is excellent, and the bibliography is one of the best (that is to say most extensive and most useable) I have seen for any author.

Also, Sam Weller's much-anticipated biography on Ray is scheduled to be released by William Morrow in March, 2005.

Another Wm Morrow book is showing up on a couple of book vendor's lists, "Bradbury Speaks: Too Soon From the Cave, Too Far From the Stars," showing a release date of August '05. There isn't a synopsis with either listing, and I haven't found any info using the normal searchs. Anyone have any scoop?

Bumping up in answer to the question about an F451 sequel.
