Could anyone here tell me if this was in fact by Ray Bradbury as i remember reading this short and can't quite place it? The story may only have been an anthology edited by him, if so i apologise to purists here, however it definetly feel like one of his shorts from the flavour of the text. However my 20 year old memory of reading this is perhaps missleading.

Hi, I was charmed to realise people out there actually read my stuff. The Day I Died is my story, but all my writing in sf, ghost, horror etc has been influenced by writers like Ray Bradbury, who, incidentally, has promised me his parrot when he dies. I hope I shall be 110 years old by that time. Best wishes to both my fans - and my dear grandson!
My name is both those - and many more. Sometimes, to give the illusion several people have written for an anthology, I have to invent names (Terry is my real name) and I have even been known to adopt a woman's name for some publications - absolutely vital when writing in the first person from a woman's viewpoint.
Hi Terry (and Grandson!) if you're still out there and following this. Being very interested in Mary Danby and Chetwynd-Hayes' anthologies I'm wondering did you write for the Fontana Ghost, Horror, Tales of Terror or Frighteners series' under other names?
