The latest word we have here at the Center from the KSU press is that The New Ray Bradbury Review 2 will be published in July; the first volume of The Collected Stories of Ray Bradbury will be published in October.

djmonolith, that is exactly what this thread is about! Just a couple of posts ago, Prof Touponce said it was expected in October 2010. It hasn't yet appeared on the publisher's website, but I'm sure it will in due course.

Funny you should ask, Linnl (back there in August 2009!), as Jon has just given me an update:
"Becoming Ray Bradbury is now in lay-out for a mid-year release in 2011 from the University of Illinois Press. It will come in at around 400-500 pages, covering Ray's self education and influences up to the fall of 1953. The sequel, The World of Ray Bradbury, will continue the story through the 1980s."
Jon points out that it shouldn't really be thought of as a biography, as it has a more selective focus, namely the development of Bradbury's thinking and writing. I have been given a privileged sneak preview of some of the contents, and find it a fascinating and riveting study.
philnic, Many thanks, and I'm sure I'm not alone in gratitude that you're in-the-know, and share these updates.
There is so much Bradburyian to look forward to: the new collection Juggernaut, the graphic novel adaptations of The Martian Chronicles and Someting Wicked This Way Comes, continued releases of Tantor Audio spoken word series, The Colonial Theatre of the Air complete radio drama adaptation of The Martian Chronicles,two Gauntlet editions, AND Ray Bradbury The Collected Stories volumes. Also, to my knowledge, there are to be three volumes to the Eller scholarship.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Linnl,
