A dime at a time

Ray Bradbury has always been a pretty poor interview subject, even more so as age advances. This talk with Bradbury at Truthdig has some interesting tidbits, assuming you have the patience to sift through all the random crankery. It certainly pointed me to areas I hadn’t known about: e.g., the story of how he wrote Fahrenheit 451 on a rental typewriter in the basement of UCLA’s Lawrence Clark Powell Library, pumping in dimes at regular intervals for nine days. And I never realized how big a debt Arnold Schwarzenegger owes to Bradbury.
