Chapter eight describes how Bradbury’s next story collection, Long After Midnight, signaled a final phase of story collection dynamic that would stretch over the final three decades of his career. Bradbury was producing fewer stories, but with the advice of William Nolan he was able to bring forward uncollected and even unpublished stories from far earlier in his career to fill out the collection. After surveying the mixed reviews, the chapter goes on to describe his renewed collaboration with Disney Imagineers on the EPCOT Spaceship Earth concept and his participation in the EPCOT Forums series. The chapter concludes with Bradbury’s evolving role as an inspiration and mentor to the Imagineer teams, and his personal friendships with Disney’s John Hench, Marty Sklar, Marc Davis.
