Sci-fi legend Ray Bradbury on God, 'monsters and angels'

Via Althouse, Ray Bradbury waxes poetic about a few things, not the least of which is God:
Bradbury, who turns 90 this month, says he will sometimes open one of his books late at night and cry out thanks to God.

"I sit there and cry because I haven't done any of this," he told Sam Weller, his biographer and friend. "It's a God-given thing, and I'm so grateful, so, so grateful. The best description of my career as a writer is, 'At play in the fields of the Lord.'

It's a good interview - it must've really irked the CNN interviewer to learn that Bradbury spends his days watching Fox News - though for a fan like me, there's nothing new here. But Bradbury's biographer has a new book out and so does Bradbury so he's newsworthy and that's a good thing. We're not always aware of giants walking among us so we should take note, especially when they have some positive things to say about God and faith.
