the arrival in town of the Dill Brothers Sideshow and Carnival when he was 12. One of the acts, a defrocked Presbyterian minister who appeared under the name Mr Electrico, tapped him on the nose with an electrified sword which caused his hair to stand on end, and delivered the instruction: “Live Forever!” Young Ray was suitably impressed; indeed, he retained a boyish quality, and his boyish interests, well into extreme old age.
Bradbury had been one of the staunchest critics of ebooks, saying they "smell like burned fuel." He told the New York Times in 2009: "It's meaningless; it's not real... It's in the air somewhere."...
So what changed? Bradbury's agent, Michael Congdon, told the Associated Press that the publishing rights to Bradbury's most famous novel were expiring — and it was impossible to strike a new deal with publishers that didn't include ebook rights. Eight different publishers were interested, but nobody would do it without an electronic edition. Condgon explained the situation to Bradbury, and he finally gave in.

I could use some help.
The Wall Street Journal has asked me to write a piece on Ray Bradbury's faith.
Any thoughts? I've found some sources for statements he made about his faith -- more of those would be good, but I'm even more interested in ways that his faith can be seen in his work.
Your suggestions would be most welcome.

From The Guardian style guide on English usage:
Nice piece, Greg. Beyond the deeper meaning in it, I find myself pondering whether your use of "begs the question" is correct (to argue in a circle) or incorrect (demands a question):
