“Forever and the Earth,” Ray Bradbury, 1950

“Forever and the Earth,” Ray Bradbury, 1950 – A washed up sf writer in the 23 century brings Thomas Wolfe to the future so that he might write a space-age novel for the time, since none of his contemporaries seem up to the task.

Comments: An example of an artist from the past brought to future to reinterpret it for the “present.”  See also “A Work of Art,” James Blish, 1956.  Read in The Classic Book of Science Fiction, ed. Conklin.

Author:  Wikipedia: “Ray Douglas Bradbury (born August 22, 1920) is an American fantasy, horror, science fiction, and mystery writer. Best known for his dystopian novel Fahrenheit 451 (1953) and for the science fiction stories gathered together as The Martian Chronicles (1950) and The Illustrated Man (1951), Bradbury is one of the most celebrated among 20th and 21st century American writers of speculative fiction. Many of Bradbury’s works have been adapted into television shows or films.”
