Happy birthday Ray Bradbury

Ray turned 88. I had heard that he was bedridden, but it seems he’s well enough to get out a bit and hang at bookstores for signings.

I am going to write him a letter and tell him how much of an influence he was on my life. Every time I do something like this the recipient dies before the letter gets there, so I am a little nervous. Using snail mail is also not so easy anymore. Who has envelopes and first class stamps, nowadays?

I have Dandelion Wine on my iPod and listen to it a little at a time – sipping it slowly so that I can enjoy the flavor.

Buy the Book!

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

Playing "Help-Me" In the Style of Sonny Boy Williamson II: A step by step, note for note analysis of some of Sonny Boy's Signature Riffs

I also write Science Fiction, so you can sample some of my best stories. Also available in Kindle format.

I started reading Science Fiction in the 1950s. I started Writing SF in the 1960s. Then, I had a life. Now I am retired, raising chickens and keeping bees. I am still an avid reader and I have sold about 70 stories in the last 20 years.
I have been collecting information about writing Science Fiction for many years now. Social media has replaced the Blog and large dedicated websites, so the pages here are mostly static. I update them from time to time.
