On February 20, 2010, the Glendale, California specialty bookstore Mystery and Imagination Bookshop hosted a signing for the anthology of new and/or previously unpublished weird stories The Bleeding Edge. Authors in attendance included Ray Bradbury, George Clayton Johnson, and many more.

At the signing, Bradbury was happy to receive from Greg Koudoulian his very own, personalized Shel Dorf Fan Club Badge. (As you may know, Ray and Shel first met in late 1969 or early 1970 on the University of California at San Diego campus, where Ray was giving a speech. After Ray’s speech, Shel approached Ray and invited him to be a guest at the first San Diego Comic-Con. Ray accepted the invitation and continues to speak at Comic-Con to this day. You can hear a recording of Ray’s first Comic-Con speech here.)
