LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

n a career that has spanned more than six decades, Ray Bradbury has contributed some of the most memorable short stories and novels of all time. In an interview with the Weekly Alibi, Bradbury talks about the millennium, the next 50 years, the purpose of fiction, and more.

Lawyer-author Scott Turow's sixth book, "Personal Injuries," again borrows liberally from his legal experience, this time from his involvement in an infamous judicial corruption sting in the '80s.

Susan Perabo's first collection of short stories offers characters spooked by love, crippled by insecurity, desperate for change, and thrilled by possibility.

Also, a look inside a Disney-planned community, two views on the corruption of American politics, reviews of books on marijuana and opium, and more.
