    Thanks for this, Mark.

    I was also unfamiliar with these Bradbury novels until I saw it mentioned on Crumley's Wikipedia page this morning. I would like to give these a shot and would welcome any comments on them as well.

    I have read that Crumley worked on a draft of Judge Dredd, but that none of his contributions made the final script. I know I saw another article at some point that mentioned he'd worked on a screenplay for The Big Nowhere.
