June 27, 1947: Young Ray Bradbury publishes a book of short stories titled “Dark Carnival.” Notice that he used to sell newspapers at Norton Avenue and Olympic Boulevard. Yes, that’s the same Norton Avenue where the Black Dahlia was found, about three miles away.

Bradbury is rightfully remembered for many things, but we at the Daily Mirror think of him as a friend of libraries, particularly the Los Angeles Public Library.

    A wonderful, gentle man. And a superb, one-of-a-kind writer. He combined chills with poetry into a unique and potent mix.
