Final Words

Two things today:

One comes from the first World Fantasy Convention (1975) in Providence, Rhode Island.  It’s a clip of Robert Bloch speaking on a writing panel.  Audio interviews with Bloch are rare; in fact, I’ve never heard him speak before.  Here’s another short one about his story-writing process.

Another interesting bit from the Internets:  Ray Bradbury’s final words.  Bradbury spent the last few years dictating his material rather than typing it himself, after a stroke slowed down his output.  Sam Weller, Bradbury’s biographer, attests that this article in the Huffington Post is the final thing Ray dictated before his death.  It’s an introduction to the Best American Nonrequired Reading 2012, a nostalgic piece about books and reading.
