Although widely anthologized while alive , since her death she seems to have lapsed into obscurity, at least on the SF side of thing. A pity. Selecting it out of all the de Fords I could have selected is therefore something of a calculated risk. Will the risk pay off? Quite funny, though beware, spoilers abound! But what can you do with a super controversial story in this age of safe spaces and trigger warnings? Then, in the midst of the Sad Puppy fervor, I caught a glimmer of an answer. Basically, doing what SF is supposed to do, posing difficult questions.
So, I kept on Jason about this, and I kept on the other authors. When a few were too busy to be able to fit writing a new short story into their schedule, I convinced them to submit incendiary blog posts. Plus, non fiction by Tom Kratman and Larry Correia submitted some of his original Sad Puppy posts—the thing that started it all!
In publishing and on Twitter, advocates for equality, feminists, poc readers and authors were attacked left and right every time they called out racism and sexism in publishing. And folks, there was a lot of that this year. Bradbury met Gene Kelly in and they became friends shortly thereafter. Bradbury and his wife walked home and along the way he told his wife that he desperately wanted to work with Kelly.
She suggested that he go through his stories until he found something that would work, turn it into a screenplay, and send it to Gene Kelly. So Bradbury looked through many of his short stories and found The Black Ferris, a ten page story about two young boys and a carnival. For a little over a month he worked on the story and then gave Gene Kelly the eighty page outline of a script that he had created. Kelly called Bradbury the next day to tell him that he wanted to direct the movie and asked for permission to find financing in Paris and London.
Although Bradbury gave his assent, Gene Kelly returned without a financer because no one wanted to make the movie.
Bradbury took the partial screenplay, at the time titled Dark Carnival, and over the next five years turned it into the novel Something Wicked This Way Comes that was published in As Bradbury writes at the end of his afterword, the book is dedicated to Gene Kelly because if he had not invited Bradbury to that screening of his movie, then Something Wicked This May Comes may never have been written.
When the book was published, Bradbury gave the first copy to Gene Kelly.

A reboot of Charmed is in the works. There are no fans like you. These ancient meteorites can be older than the Earth itself. For help tracking down such rare rocks, private collectors turn to professional meteorite hunters. These adventurers earn their living by crisscrossing the globe, searching for astronomic treasures. The risks are real, including prison and death, but so are the potential rewards — rocks that can be flipped quickly for fortunes. The man who sold Jurvetson his Mars rock is year-old Michael Farmer.
Since the late s, Farmer has traveled to some 80 countries looking for these precious rocks.
This work is not for the faint of heart. In , Farmer was kidnapped, beaten and nearly killed by Kenyan thieves. That same year, he was charged with illegal mining in Oman and imprisoned for two months.
Farmer says his motivation is not purely monetary, but rather the thrill of the chase. Title credit goes to File contributing editor of the day Kip Williams. Again, I say: Uh … whut?
