A NASA Mars orbiter is keeping tabs on the Curiosity rover. In June, a camera on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter snapped a photo of the Red Planet from above. If you look closely, the 1-ton rover appears as a tiny dot in the lower right corner of the image. The rover landed last August and is now traveling toward Mount Sharp, a mountain in the middle of an ancient crater that is the main science target of the mission. The color-enhanced photo from the orbiter shows Curiosity exploring a rock outcrop called Shaler in a region the rover has called home for most of this year.

Gary Moskowitz The secret to writing a truly amazing story is to first find love, according to Ray Bradbury. "You make a list of all the things you love and you write about them," said Bradbury, a longtime Los Angeles resident. "And if you hate something, write about that, too. 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.

Ray Bradbury's famed 1953 novel “Fahrenheit 451,” which tells of a dystopian future where books are banned, serves as a warning for many of the evils of censorship as well as the perils of overreliance on technology. Perhaps that's why the author of hundreds of short stories and nearly 50 books did his part to help bookstores survive, including Bookfellows/Mystery and Imagination on Brand Boulevard. Owner Christine Bell said Bradbury appeared at 25 book signings at the shop during a 14-year period.

For 10 years, Ray Bradbury signed books, celebrated his birthdays and drew large crowds to the Mystery and Imagination Bookshop owned by his friends Christine and Malcolm Bell in downtown Glendale. It is here that Bradbury - best known for his science fiction novel, “Fahrenheit 451” - connected with fans one-on-one, where three dimensional-themed treats, overseen by Porto's Bakery across the street, were brought in to celebrate his birthday. From a whale-shaped treat to honor Bradbury's contribution to the screenplay of the 1956 film adaptation of “Moby Dick” to another in the form of a burning book - complete with flames and a list of all his lifetime literary accomplishments - they reflected Bradbury's farfetched imagination and the overwhelming love his fans had for him. On this bustling stretch of Brand Boulevard, the phone calls and emails haven't stopped at the shop since the beloved author passed away at 91 last week.
