Photos from behind Bradbury’s Oz-ian Curtain

By Sam Weller at 7:07pm ET

When Ray Bradbury was still alive and I visited his home in west Los Angeles with regularity, I often took photos on the fly, simply to document the many mementos and metaphors. Below are two awards that sat on the bookcase in the living room. On the left is a lifetime achievement award presented by the University Women of the University of Judaism; on the right, Bradbury’s Grandmaster Award from the Science Fiction Writers of America.


  1. Whoa.

    The museum at 619 Washington needs to happen.

  5. Sam. I would Love to be a part of making that happen – preserving and making available to the world Ray’s legacy. It’s important. It’s relevant. It’s worthy. His work is worthy. HE is worthy.

    I know many others who share those feelings.

    Also – I have a plan.

  6. Let’s talk about this, Andy. Waukegan is in the midst of an arts corridor revitalization plan and this would fit in perfectly. It’s time!
