One of Ray Bradbury's lesser-known interviews also happens to be one of his last, and it is positively wonderful to experience. In 2010, the literary giant was interviewed by Sam Weller (his official biographer) at San Diego Comic Con.

The then-89-year-old Bradbury spent a little over an hour ruminating on life, love, space exploration, and even libraries, with the verve and wit of somebody a fraction of his age. It's as stirring as it is refreshing, and offers a revealing look inside one of the twentieth century's most inspiring minds.

Listen to the interview at io9.

If you're looking for tl;dr Maria Popova has transcribed the best parts.
