The Daily Stream: The Halloween Tree Is A Perfect Gateway Into The World Of Ray Bradbury

Not only did Ray Bradbury write the novel on which this animated film is based, but he also wrote the screenplay for this movie and served as the project's narrator. As a writer, Bradbury's prose is incredibly evocative, painting a vivid picture for the reader and immersing them in his worlds. As a narrator, he has a rich, deep voice and the ability to translate the magic of his words into a vocal performance that seems as if it's experiencing the same wonder and awe as the characters at the center of this tale. The result is a narration that feels like your grandfather sitting you down to tell you a story – only your grandfather happens to be one of the most beloved authors of the 20th century. I mean, just read this:

It all goes back to Ray Bradbury

CHICAGO — I told my editor I wanted to start a weekly column about reading and that I wanted to begin with Ray Bradbury and Gene Wolfe. Not because they’re science fiction legends and I’m a committed sci-fi reader — more like an enthusiastic toe-dipper. Not because they are sons of Illinois — Bradbury’s from Waukegan and Wolfe’s from Peoria. Not even because handsome new editions of their masterpieces were recently released — a single volume of Bradbury’s best-loved novels was welcomed into the venerable Library of America, alongside Baldwin, Dickinson, Faulkner; while Wolfe’s “The Book of the New Sun” series just received the reissue treatment from Tor, complete with showstopping endorsement (“The best SF novel of the last century,” blurbs Wolfe-head Neil Gaiman).

When Ray Bradbury Asked John F. Kennedy if He Could Help with the Space Race

The Space Race was a thrilling time for space enthusiasts, filled as it was with previously unimaginable achievements and firsts, beginning in 1957 with the Soviets’ launch of Sputnik 1. From the creation of NASA in 1958 through to the various satellites, humans and animals that were thrust into the sky by two hyper-competitive teams of unspeakably intelligent people, each and every move by the Soviet Union and the USA heightened the tension. It is no wonder, then, that a science-fiction author of Ray Bradbury’s calibre and experience would want, somehow, to get involved. In 1962, weeks before industry experts joined Kennedy at the Conference on the Peaceful Uses of Space in Seattle, Bradbury plainly offered his services to the Administration by way of this letter to Arthur Schlesinger, advisor to the President, along with copies of his books. A brief reply of thanks arrived from Kennedy two months later. Bradbury’s offer was not mentioned.
