Ray Bradbury ailing.
« on: December 22, 2008, 06:30:04 PM »
I just recently purchased a book I've wanted for a long time.  In the conversation with the seller, Ray Bradbury came up.  Apparently, he is ailing.  Those of you who believe in prayer, it probably wouldn't hurt to send one up for old Ray.

The conversation:

Ray B. is battling health issues: confined to a wheel-chair a lot and his energy is not the same as it used to me. A
stroke, diabetes, loss of hearing and loss of his sight in one eye are things he has
to put up with. But he is 88 now and still writing. I have to hand it to
him. His mind is a sharp as a razor. He also gets cranky and still has
those opinions about society and monorails in Los Angeles. He is about
the last living legend now. Forrest Ackerman just passed away this
month. They were very very close friends.

 I don't even want to think about loosing Ray Bradbury, this year has already been tragic enough.  As a lot of you know my particular monster/sci-fi obsession lies in the printed word, and Bradbury has an almost entire shelf of his works to himself.  This year has seen so many of our particular Universe's stars blink out, I hope we're not looking at yet another loss so soon.  Growing up as a monster kid, I see this past year as a dark one.  My prayers go out for Ray Bradbury's recovery.

I saw filmed footage of Ray speaking at Forry's birthday celebration which was held in a L.A. bookstore--he does look frail, and is in a wheelchair--but he spoke well and seemed to be hanging in there.  I'm sure Forry's passing affected him, but I'm in hopes he's not failing badly all of a sudden.

Meek posted this email address for him back in August:

raybradbury1920(*at*)gmail.com

I would assume it's still valid. I just sent him a holiday greeting and will let you know if it gets a reply.
