I have no idea where I got this book, a 1976 hardcover of Long After Midnight:
It’s been sitting on my bookshelves for well over thirty years. Did I pick it up at a yard sale? Did my Nana (never “Grandma,” only “Nana”), who always gave me books, give this to me as well? I honestly have no memory of its origin. But I do know I read through it plenty as a kid, and I realize now it’s been a long time since I’ve last perused it. I think it’s time again.
Now, this next book, Dinosaur Tales from 1983:
…might as well have been titled Mike, Grab This Book off The Shelf And Buy It Immediately, because dude, it’s stories about dinosaurs by Ray Bradbury (yes, including the most famous one of all), with illustrations by Bill Stout, Moebius, Steranko, and Gahan Wilson, among others. This is such a great package of wonderful words and pictures. And dinosaurs.
So long, Ray, and thanks for all those wonderful words, in these books and so many others.
