No, but I bet he was mighty chuffed (as we say over here) to appear in it when he was an unknown 27 year old struggling writer. "I See You Never" ended up in BEST AMERICAN SHORT STORIES for the year. Snooty is not to be sniffed at!

A good friend in California sent me a copy of THE NEW YORKER when it was published. While it was in the international postal system, Ray passed away. Yesterday the magazine landed on my doormat.

Ironic that Ray's last published work in his lifetime was a piece titled "Take Me Home".

It's online here.

The NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams reported he was writing up to the day he died. Think we'd all give a pretty to know what he wrote last!

Thanks Phil for sharing "Take Me Home".

Many beautiful tributes have been written in the last few days. However, Ray Bradbury's own words seem to resonate long past midnight,long past when we are all gone. "Take me Home" is the perfect example of why I have read Ray Bradbury these many years.

Sitting in the dentist office's waiting room this afternoon. Picked up the CURRENT, July, issue of Real Simple magazine. The have a page on books. What is the first book listed from a section about books that when you first read it it changed your life? Martian Chronicles. Magazines typically have a three month lead time...

Either listen to the last minute of the broadcast or read the last few paragraphs of the transcript.

For the life of me I cannot find the online version of a print article from Thursday's L.A. Times featuring Ron Perlman who is at Comic-Con because of Sons of Anarchy and not Hellboy. He hints at his distaste for the way things have morphed. In it he states that Comic-Con has gone from “Bradbury to Barnum.”

I blame the Tribune for the sucky search engine.
