Ray Bradbury (1920 - ) is the world’s greatest fantasy writer.
He told George Clayton Johnson not to talk about his stories, not to think
about his stories… “Just vomit them into the typewriter and send them
out — if they don’t buy them it’s their (the editors) loss.” Ray
told me once in an interview, “I’m not a science fiction writer — I’m
a fantasy writer. The only science fiction book I ever wrote
was Fahrenheit 451.” I gave him this oil portrait — with
its references to his books, Dark Carnival, and The Martian
Chronicles — at one of Forry Ackerman’s birthday parties.
