    Bradbury 100 - Episode 55 - Chronological Bradbury 1942

    Bradbury 100 - Episode 55 - Chronological Bradbury 1942

    In my occasional series of "Chronological Bradbury" episodes, we reach the year 1942. This was Ray Bradbury's first full year as a professional writer, and the year he broke through to two of the leading science fiction and fantasy pulp magazines: Astounding Science Fiction, and Weird Tales. So it's an important year, although he only published two stories in that year.

    Bradbury 100 - Episode 53 - Ray's Fanzine, Futuria Fantasia

    Bradbury 100 - Episode 53 - Ray's Fanzine, Futuria Fantasia

    In this new episode of Bradbury 100, I explore FUTURIA FANTASIA - the fanzine that Ray Bradbury produced when he was a teenage science fiction fan.

    The first issue of Futuria Fantasia, published when Ray was eighteen years old, catches him just before he heads off to New York for the first-ever World Science Fiction Convention. In that first issue, he is very much focused on "Tecnhnocracy", a movement which promised to turn science fiction into political reality.
