hello, i was wondering if you all could help me...

i remember someone telling me that ray bradbury also published under another name--romance novels and other things he doesnt ordinarily write. im almost positive it was the name douglas spalding...but when i go to look for books by that name i cant find any. If anyone knows if this is in fact true, that he does publish under another name, and if so what it is, that would be wonderful.

He's used several, but never for whole books, only individual pieces. I think "Leonard Douglas" is the one you're thinking of.

Also, if 'marionette' wants to take the time and start searching, ALL the names that Bradbury has used is listed here under some appropriate topic heading....

For some of the other names that have been used by Ray (and there are more; for example, he used the name "Ron Reynolds" in some of his writing for his fanzine, FUTURIA FANTASIA), see the top of the page of the link below:

Sorry it took so long to respond, and I hope this is still helpful.

From: "The Ray Bradbury Companion" by William F. Nolan.

Most stories published used his own name, but Nolan indicates the following pseudonyms (these tend to be early in his career):

-- Doug Rogers
-- E. Cunningham
-- Ron Reynolds
-- Brian Eldred
-- Guy Amory
-- Cecil Claybourne Cunningham
-- nthony Corvias
-- D. Lerium Temaine

He lists the following professional pen names:

-- Edward Banks
-- D.R. Banet
-- William Elliott
-- Brett Sterling
-- Leonard Spaulding
-- Leonard Douglas
-- Douglas Spaulding

For details, you'll need to get the book; but I hope this information is helpful.

THE RAY BRADBURY COMPANION. by William F. Nolen. Published by Gale Research. Detroit, MI. 1975. (pp 299-300)

I am new to the world of Ray Bradbury and this message board. I am a puppeteer and wonder if "marionette" is a puppeteer as well or is it a reference to the author's writings. Just curious more than anything. Thanks!

See Illustrated Man - s.s. collection. Not a "puppet" in the true sense of the word, but rather an android or mechanical human reproduction for the purpose of "freedom" from what complicates one's daily life. A classic RB.
