Shalena is on page 107 of 158 of Zen in the Art of Writing: Having just finished "On the Shoulders of Giants" (1980) where Bradbury talks about how science fiction and fantasy were not taught in schools, I remember clearly reading several Bradbury works in my ninth grade English class (2000). The feeling of coming full circle is kinda wonderful.
