She was at this time employed in the pathological laboratory of a famous doctor, but afterwards became managing chemist to a prominent firm of perfumery manufactures. From time to time the garrison made a desperate sortie. At such moments her womanhood avenged itself savagely on her ambition.

Political correctness is the real enemy these days. In a essay, he wrote, "People ask me to predict the Future, when all I want to do is prevent it". This intent had been expressed earlier by other authors,  who sometimes attributed it to him. During his introductory comments and on-air banter with Marx, Bradbury briefly discussed some of his books and other works, including giving an overview of " The Veldt ", his short story published six years earlier in The Saturday Evening Post under the title "The World the Children Made".
Bradbury was a strong supporter of public library systems, raising money to prevent the closure of several libraries in California facing budgetary cuts. He said "libraries raised me", and shunned colleges and universities, comparing his own lack of funds during the Depression with poor contemporary students.
In Bradbury wrote, "I see nothing but good coming from computers. When they first appeared on the scene, people were saying, 'Oh my God, I'm so afraid.
Books are all over the place, and computers will be, too". We've got too many internets. We have got to get rid of those machines. We have too many machines now". Several comic-book writers have adapted Bradbury's stories. Particularly noted among these were EC Comics ' line of horror and science-fiction comics.
Initially, the writers plagiarized his stories, but a diplomatic letter from Bradbury about it led to the company paying him and negotiating properly licensed adaptations of his work. Bradbury remained an enthusiastic playwright all his life, leaving a rich theatrical legacy, as well as literary. Bradbury is featured prominently in two documentaries related to his classic ss era: Jason V Brock 's Charles Beaumont: Bradbury's legacy was celebrated by the bookstore Fahrenheit Books in Laguna Beach, California, in the s and s.
The grand opening of an annex to the store was attended by Bradbury and his favorite illustrator, Joseph Mugnaini , in the mids. The shop closed its doors in , but in , another shop with the same name with different owners opened in Carlsbad, California. His wife of 56 years, Maggie, as she was affectionately called, was the only woman Bradbury ever dated.
He was raised Baptist by his parents, who were themselves infrequent churchgoers. As an adult, Bradbury considered himself a "delicatessen religionist" who resisted categorization of his beliefs and took guidance from both Eastern and Western faiths.
He felt that his career was "a God-given thing, and I'm so grateful, so, so grateful. The best description of my career as a writer is 'At play in the fields of the Lord.
Bradbury was a close friend of Charles Addams , and Addams illustrated the first of Bradbury's stories about the Elliotts, a family that resembled Addams' own Addams Family placed in rural Illinois. Bradbury's first story about them was "Homecoming", published in the Halloween issue of Mademoiselle , with Addams' illustrations. Addams and he planned a larger collaborative work that would tell the family's complete history, but it never materialized, and according to a interview, they went their separate ways.
Another close friend was animator Ray Harryhausen , who was best man at Bradbury's wedding. Their shared love for science fiction, King Kong , and the King Vidor -directed film The Fountainhead , written by Ayn Rand , was the beginning of a lifelong friendship. These early influences inspired the pair to believe in themselves and affirm their career choices.
After their first meeting, they kept in touch at least once a month, in a friendship that spanned over 70 years. Late in life, Bradbury retained his dedication and passion despite what he described as the "devastation of illnesses and deaths of many good friends. They remained close friends for nearly three decades after Roddenberry asked him to write for Star Trek , which Bradbury never did, objecting that he "never had the ability to adapt other people's ideas into any sensible form.
Bradbury suffered a stroke in  that left him partially dependent on a wheelchair for mobility. Bradbury died in Los Angeles, California, on June 5, , at the age of 91, after a lengthy illness. The New York Times called Bradbury "the writer most responsible for bringing modern science fiction into the literary mainstream.
For many Americans, the news of Ray Bradbury's death immediately brought to mind images from his work, imprinted in our minds, often from a young age. His gift for storytelling reshaped our culture and expanded our world. But Ray also understood that our imaginations could be used as a tool for better understanding, a vehicle for change, and an expression of our most cherished values.
There is no doubt that Ray will continue to inspire many more generations with his writing, and our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.
Numerous Bradbury fans paid tribute to the author, noting the influence of his works on their own careers and creations. On the world of science fiction and fantasy and imagination he is immortal".
One of the latter was called 'A Sound of Thunder'. The sound I hear today is the thunder of a giant's footsteps fading away. But the novels and stories remain, in all their resonance and strange beauty.
Bradbury is credited with writing 27 novels and over short stories. In , Bradbury and his wife were expecting their first child.
He took his short stories to a dozen publishers and no one wanted them. Just before getting ready to go home, Bradbury had dinner with an editor at Doubleday.
When Bradbury recounted that everyone wanted a novel and he did not have one, the editor, coincidentally named Walter Bradbury, asked if the short stories might be tied together into a book-length collection. The title was the editor's idea; he suggested, "You could call it The Martian Chronicles.
That evening, he stayed up all night at the YMCA and typed out an outline. What was later issued as a collection of stories and vignettes, Summer Morning, Summer Night , started out to be Bradbury's first true novel. The core of the work was Bradbury's witnessing of the American small-town life in the American heartland. In the winter of —56, after a consultation with his Doubleday editor, Bradbury deferred publication of a novel based on Green Town, the pseudonym for his hometown. Instead, he extracted 17 stories and, with three other Green Town tales, bridged them into his book Dandelion Wine.
Later, in , Bradbury published the original novel remaining after the extraction, and retitled it Farewell Summer. These two titles show what stories and episodes Bradbury decided to retain as he created the two books out of one. The most significant of the remaining unpublished stories, scenes, and fragments were published under the originally intended name for the novel, Summer Morning, Summer Night , in From to , 31 of Bradbury's stories were adapted by Al Feldstein for EC Comics seven of them uncredited in six stories, including "Kaleidoscope" and "Rocket Man" being combined as "Home To Stay" - for which Bradbury was retroactively paid - and EC's first version of "The Handler" under the title "A Strange Undertaking" and 16 of these were collected in the paperbacks, The Autumn People and Tomorrow Midnight , both published by Ballantine Books with cover illustrations by Frank Frazetta.
During that same period, several stories were adapted for radio drama, notably on the science fiction anthologies Dimension X and its successor X Minus One. Bradbury's close friend Ray Harryhausen produced the stop-motion animation of the creature. Bradbury later returned the favor by writing a short story, "Tyrannosaurus Rex", about a stop-motion animator who strongly resembled Harryhausen. Over the next 50 years, more than 35 features, shorts, and TV movies were based on Bradbury's stories or screenplays.
A significant result of the film was Bradbury's book Green Shadows, White Whale , a semifictionalized account of the making of the film, including Bradbury's dealings with Huston and his time in Ireland, where exterior scenes that were set in New Bedford, Massachusetts , were filmed.
The episode was first aired on May 18, In , three of Bradbury's stories were adapted for the stage. The last was adapted from his novel Dandelion Wine. Containing the prologue and three short stories from the book, the film received mediocre reviews.
The same year, Bradbury approached composer Jerry Goldsmith , who had worked with Bradbury in dramatic radio of the s and later scored the film version , to compose a cantata Christus Apollo based on Bradbury's text. Bradbury found the miniseries "just boring". Voiceover actor Paul Frees provided narration, while Bradbury was responsible for the opening voiceover; Greg Hansen and Roger Hoffman scored the episodes.
From to , Bradbury hosted a syndicated anthology television series, The Ray Bradbury Theater , for which he adapted 65 of his stories. Each episode began with a shot of Bradbury in his office, gazing over mementoes of his life, which he states in narrative are used to spark ideas for stories. During the first two seasons, Bradbury also provided additional voiceover narration specific to the featured story and appeared on screen. Bradbury wrote and narrated the animated television version of The Halloween Tree , based on his novel.
The story had also previously been adapted as a play, a musical, and a television version. In , Telarium released a game for Commodore 64 based on Fahrenheit In , the film A Sound of Thunder was released, loosely based upon the short story of the same name. The film The Butterfly Effect revolves around the same theory as A Sound of Thunder and contains many references to its inspiration.
Bradbury expressed displeasure with Moore's use of the title, but stated that his resentment was not politically motivated, though Bradbury was conservative-leaning politically. He pressured Moore to change the name, but to no avail. Moore called Bradbury two weeks before the film's release to apologize, saying that the film's marketing had been set in motion a long time ago and it was too late to change the title. The film has international distribution by Arsenal Pictures and domestic distribution by Lightning Entertainment.
Bradbury's works and approach to writing are documented in Terry Sanders ' film Ray Bradbury: Story of a Writer Bradbury's poem "Groon" was voiced as a tribute in The Ray Bradbury Award for excellency in screenwriting was occasionally presented by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America — presented to six people on four occasions from to From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

In Leilia, and fellow Crowley students Mary Desti and Mary Butts, were given co-authorship credit on Aleister's Magick Book 4 as they wrote down his words, helped shape them by asking defining questions, and elicited Aleister's commentary on pertinent points.
She was Crowley's lover from March till October His relationship with Laylah was important in that she appeared to have a measure of independence many of the others did not have. She resisted Crowley's wishes for her to commit more deeply to magick. She was initiated info Crowley's A. Though Crowley was not monogamous with her, she seems to have been the one who fascinated him the most. Laylah was, arguably, Aleister's most powerful muse, as she inspired numerous poems in addition to numerous chapters in The Book of Lies.
In Leila returned to Sydney to nurse her ailing father. In she began to publish narrative verse about the Adirondacks. From this period she travelled in Europe, met important figures of modernism, and co-operated with the collector John Quinn in building up his contemporary art collection. The collection includes an extensive correspondence with Joseph Conrad.
In she moved to Schenectady, where she worked as a social worker. Jeanne's friends included many of the period's leading authors and artists. She also had a relationship with the English author and occultist Aleister Crowley. Her own papers can be found in the Jeanne R. Waddell performing during the Rites of Eleusis c.
Shumway aka Isabella Fraux. August 14, , she married Howard Crosby Shumway in Cook co. Howard died that same year. She was returning to France to make it her home. Both Leah Hirsig and Ninette her magical name was Sister Cypris after Aphrodite , were carrying Crowley's unborn children at the same time. Leah Hirsig had a two-year old son named Hansi and Ninette had a three-year old boy named Howard; they were not Crowley's but he nicknamed them Dionysus and Hermes respectively.
Deirdre Patricia MacAlphine Although involved in the women's branch of Freemasonry — Co- Freemasonry — her interest in the occult was not deep.
Aleister had to initiate her into his Orders to expand her knowledge and commence the spiritual training necessary to design a deck of such power. By his own admission, the deck was intended to be traditional, but she encouraged him to commit his occult, magical, spiritual and scientific knowledge to the project. Apart from his mother, Frieda Harris was probably the strongest, longest lasting and most platonic relationship in his life. The extant letters from Frieda Harris to Aleister show her fondness and compassion for him, despite his regular begging for more money.
Along with Louis Wilkinson, Frieda seems to be one of the few genuine friends in Aleister's life. There were three significant events in - she met Aleister Crowley; he initiated her into his own Order, and she studied the teachings of Rudolf Steiner.
Aleister was on the lookout for a talented artist for the three month Tarot project. On June 9th, Bax had intended to introduce the artists Meum Stewart and Leslie Blanche to Aleister, but they do not seem to have turned up, so he invited Frieda instead. Bax may have known Harris through Masonic links.
Clifford Bax was also instrumental in introducing John Symonds to Aleister. Symonds takes up the Frieda Harris story: Frieda Harris was no stranger to ritual through her membership of Co-Masonry, but her knowledge was lacking. As well as reading books by Alesiter, her studies of Anthroposophy were to be a critical aspect in the creation of the Tarot. It is quite possible that her studies of Steiner were suggested by Aleister himself.
Aleister is on the record as saying that his mission was to continue the work of Blavatsky and Theosophy. Another avenue may have been Greta Valentine who introduced Frieda to Aleister. Greta Valentine was a London socialite whom Aleister loved, but probably never conquered. Her own interests stopped short of traditional occultism. A torrid romance followed during which Susan swore to divorce her American husband and devote herself to Crowley. However on her return to the US, around October , she apparently cooled in ardour.
Crowley followed her to New York in June of the following year, but by then she was already on her way back to the UK to appear in performances of the Royal Opera House, Convent Garden. During , while in Mexico City, Crowley experienced an epiphany, during which he transcribed his play, titled Tannhauser. He attributed the inspiration of this play to his romance with Susan Strong. The Times, August 19, Crowley: Ferrari -- on Aug. Maria Teresa Ferrari de Miramar, who is a native of Nicaragua.
The marriage ceremony, according to an announcement, was performed in the presdence of the British Consul. Aleister Crowley was recently refused the right to stay in France. He stated that his fiancee had also been forced to leave France.

He even lists them: Over the next few years Crowley traveled between Germany and Tunis quite often but spent most of his time in Paris. It was an extremely quiet period in Crowley's life.

Before Crowley's divorce from his first wife Rose, Crowley entered into a romantic and sexual affair with Ada. Leonard's," she often joked, and Crowley had to agree with another of Oscar Wildes' characterizations: Reviewing her works, Crowley called her "easily the daintiest and wittiest of our younger feminine writers. In February , Crowley was reunited with his wife as she had recovered from her alcoholism, however the recovery was temporary as Rose experienced a relapse.
In her later years, Ada spent time abroad, particularly in Italy, where she passed the time in the company of the Sitwells. By this time, she had grown distressingly deaf. In while returning to London from Florence, she was struck down by illness.

Crowley met Elaine in At the direction of Mathers, they were to attempt to remove the contents and bring them to Mathers in Paris. In this attempt, Crowley dressed in full Scottish highland attire complete with plaid kilt, sash with a gilded cross, and a hefty dagger at his side, in addition to this, he wore a black mask, though all of the Adepti at the London temple would know his identity on sight.
The attempt failed and Mathers was expelled from the Golden Dawn. By Crowley and Elaine parted but he met up with her again briefly in in Shanghai, where they undertook some magickal work and a brief study of The Book of the Law.
Her parents were the Rev. William Simpson and Alice Hall. They married in and lived for some years at Patna, Roorki, and several other places in India. Crowley had nothing nice to say about her, whom he described as 'a horrible mother, a sixth-rate singer, a first-rate snob, with dewlaps and a paunch; a match-maker, mischief-maker, maudlin and muddle-headed.
Elaine was the eldest two daughters, her younger sister, Beatrice, moved to New York and established herself as an actress and poet under the stage name Beatrice Irwin. Desti was Crowley's second Scarlet Woman. She assisted Crowley in establishing the magical link with the praeterhuman minds that inspired him with one of his greatest works, Magick, Liber ABA,book 4.
Most consider this as his magnum opus. Her ability as a seer was great; a record of her oracular talent can be found in The Ab-ul-Diz Working. Her work also appears in Crowley's book, The Vision and the Voice. She replaced Leila and was present with Crowley when they undertook the "Abuldiz Working," invoking a spirit guide by that name. Desti passed away in at her residence of leukemia after being seriously ill for two months.
Quote — 'A doubtful case. Put me in touch with Abuldiz; hence helped with Book 4. Failed from personal jealousies. Helen reminded Crowley 'of a snake that glittered with the loveliness of lust; but she was worn and weary with the disappointment of insatiable desire.
Her intellect was brilliant but cynical. She had lost faith in the universe. She acted in vaudeville and stock roles until She helped found the first company of the Washington Square Players. Helen left her mark on Hollywood as a 'fine character actress who played eagle-eyed grandmas. Crowley became lover to Helen briefly after Jeanne left him. Gerda Maria von Kothek.

She was the English wife of the famed Indian art historian Ananda Coomaraswamy. Alice accompanied Coomaraswamy on a trip to India in and became his second wife. They lived on a houseboat in Srinagar, Kashmir, whilst she studied Indian music with Abdul Rahim of Kapurthala, and Coomaraswamy researched Rajput paintings of northern India.
Once back in London, Alice became noted for her recitals of Indian music which were often introduced by an explanatory lecture given by her husband. It is not known how Coomaraswamy and Crowley met, but they had a substantial relationship while Crowley was living in New York in In August , met Anna, whom he named The Dog, based on her physical and magical correspondence to Anubis, the dog-headed Egyptian god of the dead. Through her he met Roddie Minor. At the time, Crowley practiced sex magick with both women.
Anna eventually left and Crowley deepened his involvement with Roddie. In his diaries Crowley twice called her Cyptis Aphrodite and he wrote, "She was a Pennsylvania Dutch girl, the only member of her family not actually insane.
In her most abstract form, she represents the female sexual impulse and the liberated woman; although she can also be identified with Mother Earth in her most fertile sense. At the same time, Crowley believed that Babalon had an earthly aspect in the form of a spiritual office, which could be filled by actual women — usually as a counterpart to his own identification as "To Mega Thereon" The Great Beast — whose duty was then to help manifest the energies of the current Aeon of Horus.
Babalon is often described as being girt with a sword and riding the Beast. She is often referred to as a sacred whore, and her primary symbol is the Chalice or Grail.
