Alibi Flashback: An interview with Ray Bradbury
The death of Ray Bradbury at the age of 91 sent us on a time-tripping flashback to 1999 A.D. The famed author passed through Albuquerque then as keynote speaker at the 50th anniversary of Los Alamos National Labs. We were lucky enough to score an interview with the man. Then again, maybe luck had nothing to do with it. During a lengthy book signing he performed at Page One,Bradbury was approached by a teenage fan who wanted to ask the literary legend a few questions for his high school newspaper. Without hesitation, Bradbury handed over his home telephone number and said, “Call me.” Immeasurably gracious and inspiring to the end, Bradbury will never be missed–because he will always be with us through his timeless words.
