Bradbury Beyond Apollo

University of Illinois Press

Bradbury’s popularity in Argentina culminated in a 1997 visit to Buenos Aires, where he met the president and such major South American literary figures as future Nobel laureate Mario Vargas Llosa. Chapter 34 goes on to describe Bradbury’s long association with Argentine artist and photographer Aldo Sessa and the books they worked on, The Ghosts of Forever (1980) and Séances and Ghosts (2000). Bradbury was able to gather enough stories for two collections, Quicker Than the Eye (1996) and Driving Blind (1997), and the following year Stuart Gordon and Roy Disney were able to bring The Wonderful Ice Cream Suit to home video release. Chapter 34 also describes the eventual loss of the Mel Gibson Fahrenheit 451 option and the 2018 HBO production.
