Officially, one, "I Sing the Body Electric!"

Unofficially, possibly four, give or take, and depending on who you believe. As far as has been given us to know, it is hashed over in this thread here: http://www.raybradbury.com/ubb/Forum1/HTML/000977.html which contains links to articles on the subject. As for the rest of Ray's side of the story, that will have to wait till Sam Weller's book appears.

Unless you're counting the 1980s revival of the series, in which case there are two more:

The Burning Man - adapted by J.D.Feigelson with Ray's personal blessing;

The Elevator - screenplay by Ray.

That's a long way for you to travel, Doug. You might want to stop off in a small town on the way. A stop at Willoughby is good, I hear.

I wish I were only an hour away. That sounds like it would have been a wonderful event. Sadly, it's difficult to make such a trip. Is there a way on these boards to find out when other events are planned a little more in advance?

If people don't object maybe the guy who helps out at such events could post a few non-Ray related tidbits in advance?

LOL! Don't play with the new girl. She'll just get confused, gather up her crayons, and run home. Wink Really, though, it would be helpful to get notifications, so thank you to "that guy".

Yes, post any events of interest even if only tangentially related to Ray.
