Opening Narrative

"People ask: 'Where do you get your ideas?' Well, right here. (He enters an artifact filled room) All this is mine. Martian landscape. Somewhere in this room is an African veldt. Just beyond perhaps is a small Illinois town where I grew up. And I'm surrounded on every side by my magician's toy shop. I'll never starve here. I just look around, find what I need and begin. I'm Ray Bradbury and this is" (followed by the name of series flashed on the screen) "Well, then. Right now. What shall it be? Out of all this, what do I choose to make a story? I never know where the next one will take me. The trip. Exactly one-half exhilaration. Exactly one-half terror."
