“A regrettable situation … for the Yuletide merchants who, toward the last there, as I recall, were beginning to put up holly and sing Noel the day before Halloween.”

— A fictionalized Ambrose Bierce in the short story “The Exiles,”
set in the year 2120 and written in 1950

  1. And, as I recall, they all wore their Nixon masks at the 4th of July Party.

  2. I had the distinct pleasure of sharing a booth with Mr. Bradbury in late 90s at the Chicago Booksellers Convention; we had the same publisher. I wish I had known of him more to ask him anything I ever wished while spending about 8-9 hours with him. While working, I was dressed as a ‘Billy Bob Possum’ promoting our children’s TV series called Swamp Critters at the time.

    Anyway, I recall he had HUGE hands….which made us wonder how he still typed on conventional typewriters as he is known to do.

    He was very nice.
