"Incidentally, a story called “Bright Phoenix” follows Nolan’s interview in that issue of Fantasy and Science Fiction. It had been rejected by Harper’s Bazaar and The Atlantic Monthly, and would serve as the blueprint for Fahrenheit 451, the critically lauded novel that Bradbury wrote in a UCLA basement typing room."

We rejected the story that became Fahrenheit 451. Damn.
