Remembering Ray Bradbury

Today we remember legendary writer Ray Bradbury, who passed away this week at the age of 91.

A prolific writer who helped elevate the literary reputation of the science fiction genre, Bradbury has also been one of the most popular guests on our “Writer’s Symposium by the Sea” series.

He appeared in 2001 to talk about his craft in “An Evening with Ray Bradbury,”, and sat down with host Dean Nelson for an in-depth and frank conversation about his life and love of writing. Both videos are online and ready for you to enjoy and fondly remember this iconic American writer.

  1. Hello:How about this suggestion? Write about how dibrleeate decisions for a better humanity, involving money, government, technology, and racial equality can produce positive results in a tangible period of time. It’s kind of the original Star Trek theme, but you needn’t use any Star Trek in your idea. It has enormous implications, but with a friendly, positive outcome.And I agree with another poster maybe find out how other authors have dealt with the successes and failures of an attempt like this. Some stories paint technology, for example , as inherently evil. But what if it could be managed in a broad plan of growth and development of humanity, to our overall good?Cheers!

  2. Go on line or to the library. Find a list of auohtrs of science fiction. Read some of their work. Pick a common theme. Illustrate (compare and contrast) how they deal with the theme or themes you’ve chosen.
