Re: Hallowe'en Reading and Viewing, 2008!

Oh, speaking of Bradbury, I recently watched the original much-better-without-Raymond-Burr Gojira, and in one of the special features, it's mentioned that the idea was inspired by The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms, which was based on the Bradbury short story that wound up being known as The Fog Horn. That story was written after Bradbury took a walk on the beach and spotted a demolished roller coaster, thinking they looked like dinosaur bones.

It's crazy to think that that one afternoon where Ray took a stroll would end up leaving a legacy like that.

Okay, not really all that much to do with Hallowe'en, but I wanted to mention it here.
