Searching for Ray Bradbury
Writings About the Writer and the Man
By Steven Paul Leiva
Foreword by David Brin
Eight essays on Ray Bradbury from novelist Steven Paul Leiva, a long-time colleague and friend of Bradbury's. The book includes the title piece written for the Los Angeles Times, and "Ray Bradbury: The Man Who Was Himself," his appreciation of Bradbury commissioned by the Science Fiction Writers of America for the upcoming Winter edition of their Quarterly magazine, The Bulletin. Other pieces were originally published in Neworld Review, KCET.org and in Leiva's personal blog. All under cover of artist Lou Romano's brilliant, warm caricature of Ray.

Praise for Searching for Ray Bradbury
"Steven Paul Leiva's personal and deeply moving tribute to his friend,
Searching for Ray Bradbury, shines a loving light upon some little-
known aspects of this intricate and deeply passionately man... In
keeping with Ray's own style, Steve gives way to impulse. To passion
and the heart" — David Brin in his Foreword
"Ray Bradbury will be remembered as one of the literary giants of the
20th Century. ÊSteven Paul Leiva's book is a perfect tribute to the life
and works of this great artist." — Joe Mantegna, actor/producer-narrator of Live Forever: The Ray Bradbury Odyssey
"In Searching for Ray Bradbury, Steven Paul Leiva helps us negotiate
Ray Bradbury's transition from a vibrant life to an enduring legacy. His
trenchant observations effectively summarize the profound range of
BradburyÕs voice and vision, and reveal how his influence extended from
large public audiences and a vast readership to generations of individual
students and writers just beginning to negotiate the great wide world." — Professor Jonathan R. Eller, author of Becoming Ray Bradbury and Director of the Center for Ray Bradbury Studies, Indiana University
School of Liberal Arts.
Steven Paul Leiva is a writer working in Los Angeles. In 2010 he created and organized Ray Bradbury Week in Los Angeles, a week-long series of events celebrating Bradbury's 90th birthday. He was also the driving force behind having the Los Angeles City Council name the downtown intersection of Fifth & Flower (by the Central Library) "Ray Bradbury Square."

"Steven Leiva not only promises, but delivers!"
— The late Ray Bradbury
