Bradbury’s fascination with genre fiction art resulted in “1982: A Helicon Year for the Artists of Science Fiction.” Chapter 19 goes on to describe how Byron Preiss assembled a range of well-known artists to illustrate a new collection of Bradbury stories, Dinosaur Tales. These included Gahan Wilson, Jim Steranko, Jean Henri Giraud, David Wiesner, and Overton Loyd. The chapter also explores Bradbury’s high regard for traditional poets Phyllis McGinley and Helen Bevington in the context of his second and third Knopf volumes of his own poetry. The chapter concludes with Bradbury’s ill-fated collaboration with Japanese producer Yutaka Fujioka, Roger Allers, and Chris Lane on the juvenile animated feature, Little Nemo in Slumberland, inspired by the comic strip character by Winsor McCay.
