Ray Bradbury as an early writer and influences

"I imitated Edgar Allan Poe from the time I was twelve until I was about eighteen. I fell in love with the jewelry of Poe..... 
I listened to a lot of imaginative radio shows, especially one called Chandu the Magician... Every night when the show went off the air I sat down and, from memory, wrote out the whole script.... Chandu was against all the villains of the world and so was I. He responded to a psychic summons and so did I.... 
I was going into one of the arts... drawing, acting, and writing. "
-- Ray Bradbury from a Paris Review interview
