James Whitmore

The first time Mr. B heard his plays read aloud James Whitmore was among those voices.

That's right Phil! Thanks for the information as I knew that there was another connection with Ray but was racking my brain to figure it out.

I always liked him throughout the many characters he played. His son, James Jr., is also a talented actor and director.

True enough. And who can name another (much more difficult) connection from Whitmore to RB?

I like that the British spell traveller with two ls.

I used to watch him on the Johnny Carson Programme, and also saw him with Buddy Rich. He was great!

This is a very sad day for all fans of great science fiction and fantasy writing. Philip Jose Farmer, author of the acclaimed Riverworld novels (including the 1972 Hugo winner, TO YOUR SCATTERED BODIES GO), and many other fine novels and stories, passed away today at the age of 91, at his home in Peoria, Illinois. While Farmer was not known for the mystery genre, one of my personal favorites is Farmer's noirish novel, NOTHING BURNS IN HELL, a very violent (and very funny) detective novel set in his hometown of Peoria.

A link to details about his passing is noted below:

Oh, that is sad. I wrote him and Larry Niven fan letters once and both sent wonderful replies.

Sounds to me like you should pay Mr. Niven a visit at the Paperback show this March 28th.

He'll be the one sitting next to Jerry Pournelle. Fredrik Pohl will be there, as well as another writing team: William F. Nolan and George Clayton Johnson. Oh yes, Mr. Ray Douglas Bradbury is also scheduled to attend.
