Thanks, John! But is the release targeted for this year or next year? ("Next" Christmas is ambiguous to me - dunno if it's a transatlantic thing).

If Ray says next Christmas it'll be next Christmas. I've not thought to ask him to clarify.

I can tell you that all the stories are with the publisher. None of which have ever been published before, a few old a few new.

Does anyone know the status of Becoming BRadbury vol. 1 or of first volume of the Collected Bradbury. I thought they were both due around Sept or Oct and was expecting to find them on Amazon by now.

The last information I had from Jon Eller, author of "Becoming Ray Bradbury: 1920-1953", the volume was with the publisher (University of Illinois Press) - and Jon was already well into writing the second volume.

And the last information I had from Bill Touponce on the collected short stories, was that it was going to the publishers in the last quarter of 2009. Again, work on volume 2 is already underway.

A new title from PS PUBLISHING is mentioned in their latest email, but its not up on the PS website yet. Frowner Its going to be in their STANZA poetry line: Greentown Redux by Ray Bradbury.

Also Bradbury has some praise on a new poetry book by Helen Patrice:

Nemo! is potentially a very significant work. From the portions already published (in the New Ray Bradbury Review) you can see that it's a true blend of Bradbury and McCay. If only this screenplay had been filmed, this could have been one of the major works of Bradbury's later career (for those who don't know, the film entered the all too familiar "development hell", was passed from one writer/producer/director to another before eventually being made in a completely modified form; I seem to recall Bradbury's screen credit in the final film was something like "concept by Ray Bradbury").

This might be closer to the original work.

That link only works for Netflix subscribers. Won't work for me, anyhow. Here's a better link:

I haven't seen this DVD, but it's bound to be better than the film that ultimately derived from Ray's work, which is this:

That's peculiar. In the past I've been able to search films on that site without being logged in to my account. Curious.

Oh, I can search and browse the site, but the link you provided takes me to a login screen.
