I could bore you with the entire story of my first exposure to his work but it’s no more or less exciting than Scalzi’s or anyone else’s. I think Cory Doctorw’s piece at BoinBoing is especially wonderful and of course you must read the piece he wrote for the New Yorker.
He fired my imagination up like a paper balloon. What better thing is there for a writer to do to any mind but especially a young one?
Thank you, Mr. Bradbury.
