You must be passionate and behave with your guts, your own innards."

In the Monday Glendale News-Press there was a nice article, "He lights the literary fire." The story was about Ray Bradbury doing a book signing at the Mystery and Imagination on Brand Boulevard. The pudgy guy with the receding hairline in the background of the picture on the front page of your paper is me. I have the occasional honor of helping Ray at some of his book signings. My job is to take the books from his fans, making sure they are flapped; book-cover flap used as a place marker on the page for signing and handing the books to Bradbury.
