New content for Wauke-con
I just did a Zoom interview with two men, a father and son team, David and Daniel Ritter. This pair have compiled an excellent book, The Earliest Bradbury, which documents Ray Bradbury’s early writing career from age 17 to about 21. In those days young Bradbury wrote primarily for a variety of mimeographed sci-fi zines, the facsimiles of which can be seen in this book. Their book also has an impressive amount of original artwork. The interview will be available to those who buy a ticket to Wauke-con and available on Oct. 17. Meanwhile, you can check out their site below:
