When Ray Bradbury turned 91, Neil Gaiman gave him a short story titled The man who forgot Ray Bradbury. Ahead of its inclusion in Shadow Show: All-New Stories in Celebration of Ray Bradbury, Gaiman has published a reading of the story onto Soundcloud. It's a powerful, evocative tale, and a fitting tribute to one of the most beloved authors of the 20th century. You can read the transcript along with an accompanying essay over at io9.
