Just finished "A Heart at Fire's Center", the life and music of Bernard Herrmann. GREAT BOOK! Smith inspired me to watch, e.g. "The Ghost and Mrs. Muir", "Jason and The Argonauts", and some others specifically paying attention to the music and what Herrmann had in mind and Smith's description of it.

Richard Matheson's final book, Other Kingdoms. And let me tell you - the man has lost nothing as a writer. Published in 2010, it hooked me from the first page.

Cover to cover read of an amazing historic exchange of two young pilots in the skies over Germany... and an incredible million-in-one meeting of the same elderly veteran WWII warriors:

A powerful narration indeed!

Autobiography The Way The Future Was, by Ray's friend and colleague Fred Pohl. Ray is briefly mentioned in passing in a couple of places.



(Fred also has a blog, The Way The Future Blogs, which is a fascinating read.

Many years ago I listed 17 authors whose works I wanted to read in entirety or which at least interested me enough to try to read a number of them. (I have more favorite authors I didn't list having already read all their works. This is only the original list from over 30 years ago, not counting favorite authors added since or awards or book series. In 1982 I realized I would never like any author as well as, let alone better than Ray Bradbury and so far I have been right.) After the last several latest blows I thought maybe all but one or two were dead so reviewed just now. All of these were authors of whom I was at least aware by 1976, most of whom I was reading by 1974. In 1974, only four of the 17 were dead. Now, the maximum number who I know are alive (or at least don't know are dead!) is six. One is 97 and I think in a nursing home; another upset me once so I haven't read anything of hers since 1994. I have several of her books I keep saying I'll read when I feel up to it and in over 20 years I haven't felt up to it.

Just concluded: Two epic tales of our planet during its the darkest hours of modern times.

The bravery, loyalty, and spirit of the men and women who made up the Greatest Generation play out powerfully on "every page!" Heroes all!

The story of young Airman Louis Zamperini is a timeless tale of human endurance - and the cruelties that tested its limits. Amazing accounts, from world class Olympian runner to years as a POW. Then his return to real world awaits. . .
