Killings brings you our weekly selection of posts that have amused, enlightened and generally distracted us.

RIP Ray Bradbury. In memory of the great sci-fi writer here are some of his words, thoughts, ideas, pictures and a selection of cultural works he inspired.

Lots of links and tips for writers this week: how to get paid, how to become an e-book star, how to please editors and how to dress for success (that last one was a tip from us, we love those little notebooks!).

Hypotheticals time:  some classic novels and the dream filmmakers born to make them. What are your thoughts?

The Wire: The Musical? It’s the stuff hilarious dreams are made of.

We completely agree with Vulture here: this scene from TV history is the stuff nightmares are made of.

While we’re on nightmares: here are ten of the most terrifying chidren’s books from around the world.

Do you enjoy collecting history? The Millions explore ‘The Curious Addiction of the Postcard Collector’ and Brain Pickings have a look at some amazing vintage Soviet propaganda posters.

Just when we thought The Perfect Strangers game was the pinnacle of TV-meets-gaming-delights, Community fans behold this masterpiece!

Enjoy your weekend.
