“Mary Shelley’s November is Ray Bradbury’s October.”

     "It was on a dreary night of November that I beheld the accomplishment of my toils." This fateful moment in Victor Frankenstein’s narrative will always associate the month of November with Mary Shelley’s classic novel. For Ray Bradbury, the month of October has always been the focus for his masterful tales and novels of the supernatural; like Poe in the nineteenth century, readers in the twentieth century would call Ray Bradbury “The October Man.” In this illustrated lecture, Dr. Eller will show how Ray Bradbury revised and even re-wrote his dark fantastic fiction for successive publications and illustrators down through time.

     The Center for Ray Bradbury Studies at IUPUI is one of the larger single-author archives in the United States, and a hub for scholarship on the work of Ray Bradbury and science fiction. The Center is home to more than 100,000 pages of published and unpublished literary works stored in thirty-one of the author’s filing cabinets; forty years of Bradbury's personal and professional correspondence. https://bradbury.iupui.edu/
