Mehr über den Autor

Ray Bradbury gehört zu den großen Science-Fiction-Autoren Amerikas. Geboren 1920 in Waukegan, Illinois, begann Bradbury unmittelbar nach der Highschool mit dem Schreiben fantastischer Geschichten. Seinen Lebensunterhalt verdiente er sich anfangs noch als Zeitungsverkäufer, bald aber konnte er seine Erzählungen in diversen Zeitschriften veröffentlichen. 1953 wurde Bradbury mit seinem Roman "Fahrenheit 451" schlagartig weltberühmt, nicht zuletzt auch dank der Verfilmung durch François Truffaut. Mehr als 600 Geschichten und über 30 Bücher hat der Vater von vier Töchtern seither publiziert. Aber auch außerhalb der Literatur ist Bradbury immer wieder gefragt: U. a. engagierte er sich als Experte für das Fantastische bei Disneyland Paris. Heute lebt Bradbury in Los Angeles.

This collection of essays is the most helpful "how-to" book on the market. There are great ideas from the start. For example, create a character, give him his own fears and hopes, let him loose, and follow as quickly as you can. That is how you create a story. Thank you Ray Bradbury.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Outstanding! 3. Juni 2000
As a writer, this has helped me immensely find that creativity that I had never lost, merely scared off and misplaced. Kudos to Bradbury, a true artist in the field.

5.0 von 5 Sternen No book on writing offers so much 28. Februar 2002
Von Just Bill - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Ray Bradbury is my favorite author. So much so that I named my Scottish Fold cat "Bradbury" in honor of him.
And it's all because of books like this.
Zen in the Art of Writing is classic Bradbury: the crisp, short sentences, the vivid mental imagery, the amazing insights into his own writings -- all of it. This book uplifts me, moves me and fills me with awe.
It is, without a doubt, the best book on writing I have ever read.
Why? Because what he shares seems as pertinent to me as if he wrote it FOR me. Example: Page 17. One day, he discovered that his story titles were nothing more than a list of nouns, such as The Lake. The Night. The Monster. The Town Clock. The Carousel. The Crowd.
Such simplicity. Yet, after reading this book I found myself creating my own mental list of titles the same way. Suddenly, just about anything seemed ripe for a story, and infused with some hidden, dark meaning.
The Man on the Corner. The Empty Room. The Ten Foot Oak Tree. The Noise in the Basement. The Tea Leaf. The Knight and the Bishop.
I don't know why it works for me, but it does. Each of those "titles" (that I just came up with as I'm writing this) could be fleshed out into a story. For some reason, when I see things as nouns, my imagination is uncorked and I begin to feel the urge to explore the thoughts invoked.
Try it sometime.
Another example: The chapter "How to Keep and Feed a Muse." Priceless. Magical. He shares ways to awaken the sleeping giant within...and set pen to paper with stellar results.
If you're a writer, you need this book. If you're a lover of Bradbury, you need this book. If you just want to know how one of the 20th century's most lauded authors achieved that status, you need this book.
I re-read Zen in the Art of Writing whenever I feel my muse begin to slip away like a wisp of fog caught by a sudden breeze. And she returns to me. Grudgingly, perhaps. But she returns.
I believe this book could do the same for you.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Inspiring 29. März 2003
Von Stan Gibilisco - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Ray Bradbury takes you on mind journeys into his past, and perhaps into your future. He treads on the edge of reality, sneaking glances over the precipice, knowing that to jump means to fly.
I bought this book in Miami Beach. I picked it from among other writing-related books when I opened it and saw a chapter entitled "Drunk, and in Charge of a Bicycle."
This book is not about writing mechanics or technique. It forces you to face two absolute requirements for being a writer:
(1) You must love to write and do it every day, and
(2) You must use your own voice.
According to the author, the desire for fame, money, or literary elitism is as useless as a computer without software. (I would suggest that it's more like a program without a computer. Whatever.)
The last chapter, and the concluding poems, are inspiring. Mr. Bradbury knows that writers despise untruths. I finished his book in two evenings. When I put it down I said, "Yeah." Next morning I would be up dark and early. Writing is hard. Everything else is harder.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Soul Transfusion 25. September 2007
Von Kendal B. Hunter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
This book is like getting a transfusion. Not of blood, but of Ray Bradbury's enthusiasm. His motto was "Exactly one-half terror, one-half exhilaration." Well, this book takes out the terror of writing, and leaves us with pure exhilaration.

Even if you are not a writer, you may want to get this book just for Bradbury's zest.

This book is a tight tapestry of several ideas. It is part autobiographical, with the story of him ripping up his Buck Rodger's comics because his friends (like Job's friends) mocked him. Later he ripped up his friends as he stood strong for his conations and returned to his true bliss.

Bradbury also retells the story of his meeting Mr. Electrico at the carnival. Besides being the basis of "The Illustrated Man" and "Something Wicked This Way Comes," this meeting with the carne was Bradbury's equivalent of First Communion. He was never the same afterwards.

He also has some "nuts and bolts" tips for writers.

1. Let yourself explode. There are two types of explosions. One is the IED (improvised explosive device), where you just go to pieces. But there is also the explosion of popcorn. Be popcorn. Drop your restraints and inhibitions.

2. Write 1,000 words a day. This is not a whole lot, the equivalent of one full Amazon.com review. Trust me it works--it gets the garbage out of system. Practice makes perfect.

3. Follow a weekly regimen. Monday write. The next few days rewrite what you have written. This is crap filtration. Saturday send off the manuscript. Wash, rinse, repeat.

4. Don't think. That is, don't over think. Listen to your subconscious--that shadowy figure in the back of your heart that keeps talking to you. She tells you what is right or wrong. She's the same being who tells you things you had never thought of before. This is the muse. Without it, you cannot write.

This review cannot do justice to Ray's prose and sage advice. All I can do is whet your appetite, and hope you'll bite. The book is delicious!

5.0 von 5 Sternen No Writer Should Be Without It 10. Juni 2002
Von A. Wolverton - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
If you've ever wondered, "Why aren't people more passionate about their work?" then you've never read 'Zen in the Art of Writing.' Whether or not you happen to like Ray Bradbury's work, you can't dispute his passion for writing, which is evident from page one.
Bradbury (who turns 82 this year) is a writer of enormous output. In this series of essays, the author lets us in on many of his secrets, but the bottom line is this: If you love what you do, and are excited about it, nothing can stop you. Much of Bradbury's writing is connected with his childhood experiences and memories, which allows him to jump into writing like a kid jumping into a swimming pool on a hot summer day. Bradbury recounts many of his writing experiences and influences in the book and they are all fascinating. I can't imagine any writer (or lover of stories) who would not enjoy this book. It can be read in an afternoon, but savored for a lifetime. Thank you, Mr. Bradbury, for a real treasure.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Key word is EXUBERANCE 18. Juni 2012
Von friedsparrow - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
This book was given to me by someone years ago, and has been living unread on my shelf ever since. I've always adored Ray Bradbury's short stories, so once he died I thought it would be a fitting epitaph to finally read about his philosophy on writing. I definitely enjoyed it, at intervals. The margins are peppered with excited stars, dashes, and exclamation points. But I was surprised to find myself getting a little tired of it about halfway through.

Bradbury has a richly luxurious imagination, and a very P.T. Barnum-esque finesse for riding the waves of hyperbole. That is a hell of an asset in a fantasy/science-fiction writer, but doesn't always work for essays. It feels like he's writing at a breakneck pace, trying to keep the reader's attention with his relentless ranting momentum. As a result, a lot of his advice (though the concepts are definitely sound) is presented in a bit of a messy, slapdash way. He writes in a hearty, belly-laughing, conversational voice; and it feels larger-than-life but a bit forced. This is not the intimate voice of Ray Bradbury I was hoping for... maybe he doesn't want to let that kind of personal feeling out in his work without dressing it up a bit first. I am a huge admirer of honesty in a writer, especially for memoirs or other first-person-style narratives, so this was a bit disappointing for me.

I still think he's a brilliant writer. I still think that people should admire him for his resolve, his energy, his dedication to what he loves. He talks about ZEST and GUSTO in the first essay -- and those are glorious things. He calls them "inflated pigs' bladders" that one should wield in each fist -- that is glorious too. A blurb on the back cover stresses how exuberant and vibrant this book is (which is true)... but EXUBERANCE seems to be just steam that Bradbury is running on, and never quite getting to what he wants to say. He's got a great mind for flourishes of fantasy, but somehow it's hard to listen to him trying to talk sense.
