"Searching for Ray Bradbury"

File this one under "things that make Veronica incredibly jealous": novelist and screenwriter Steven Paul Leiva has been spending a lot of time with Ray Bradbury for a video he's working on for the Buffalo International Film Festival. Here he composes an essay about the "world's greatest science fiction writer," exploring where the writer came from and how he came to embody that title. Great essay, but, man, I want to spend time with Ray Bradbury! [via]
