Upcoming Appearances by Ray

Can anyone with information about Ray's upcoming appearances please share what you know?

I attended Ray's Art of Writing seminar in San Diego in 2005, and it meant a lot to me. If there's an event like that coming up, even if it's far away, I'd like to go.

I called the Learning Annex in San Diego and they said they do not have an event planned, and they are mostly only doing online classes now (which I think is very unfortunate.)

I would really like to see Ray again.

Thank you- that's good news, and sooner than I expected!

Are there any other upcoming events with Ray?

I'll be there unless something very strange happens. I definitely want to go, but strangeness in my schedule is not a possibility I would rule out, considering how circumstances have conspired against me for the last two years. But that is a long story.

Thank you very much.

Thank you, Doug and John.

I made it to the event in Pasadena and it was wonderful to hear Ray speak again. I will try to make it to some or all of these upcoming events.

I hope you will continue to post any information you have on upcoming appearances by Ray, as I believe there are a lot of people who would benefit from listening to him.

Chris,

The next time you go to an event look for me and say hello. (I'm the other guy in the photo from that night.)

Here is a reminder that Mr. B is scheduled to be at the Los Angeles Paperback Show this Sunday, around 1 p.m. for signing. Dust off your old paperbacks and bring 'em on down.

Some other authors scheduled to attend are Peter S. Beagle, George Clayton Johnson, Larry Niven, Frederik Pohl and Harry Turtledove.

They will be celebrating William F. Nolan's 80th birthday with a cermony and award. Bill does not know this so don't spoil it for him. Smiler

...and my friend Don Glut, who wrote The Empire Strikes Back novel. Ray's friend Leigh Brackett wrote the screenplay, and Ray's friend Kersh directed the thing.

Connections all around.

I'll be bringing my Loreili of the Mist by Leigh Brackett which has an Introduction by Mr. B and a Forward by Harry Turtledove. Ray has already signed my copy so now is my chance to get Mr. Turtledove to sign it. So there's seven more degrees of seperation.

Oh how I wish I could be there. What a fantastic event and for Ray to be surrounded by other such talented authors. Although I have quite a few books signed by Ray I have a few that need to be and I should get them sent out to himto do so. Have fun fellows!

Thanks for keeping this thread going guys.

You might see me at the opening of Fahrenheit 451. I hope to be there with my family. (I'm easy to spot in a crowd, being almost seven feet tall with shoes on.)

Will Mr. Bradbury be speaking at the opening?

As a general rule, Mr. B does say a few words before the play. Also, there is tradionally a reception afterwards where Mr. B will hold court. Lastly, there will be books available for purchase that Ray will sign.
