I ripped this awhile ago, but it's important to put it out here again:

Ray Bradbury at the 2007 Festival of Books

It's 53M of ogg. And worth it.

Totally. I just relistened to it.

My crusade for this year's is continuing.

I met Ray Bradbury when I was 15 at Dark Carnival before it moved (across the street from Ashby bart. I had no clear idea who he was. But I was one of maybe 5 people in the store, and he seemed like a nice guy. Of course, now that I read his books, I wish I'd been at least 5 years older and had read at least a couple books when I met him. I haven't listened to the ogg yet, but i'm curious.

I first met him at the 1998 Festival of Books. He offered to adopt me and a friend of mine when we gushed about The Martian Chronicles and Dandelion Wine.

Somewhere, there's a recording of that -- my friend was carrying around a digital recorder.

Anyway, ever since that first time, I've made a concerted effort to go back every year. I've only missed a handful of times. Ray hasn't changed his talk much -- he had one big change after his stroke, but it's pretty much the same talk.

It's still worth going down there for him alone.
