When I was a teenager I loved reading Ray Bradbury. I had actually forgotten about his work until just recently. I ordered this book on Amazon.com and began reading it almost the minute it got here. I couldn't put it down. It was even more thrilling than I remembered it. If you haven't read " The Martian Chronicles", you don't know what you are missing. For all of you Star Wars fans, he was the original. He was the best. I highly recommend this book.

Did you ever read his "Dandelion Wine"? It was entirely different, but an excellent read, too.

I started it just recently. I will have to pick it back up now. Thanks for the reminder.

My favorite Bradbury story is "All Summer in a Day." I read it in 6th grade and for some reason, it affected me deeply. Haven't read Martian Chronicles, but I wouldn't be surprised if they are around here somewhere!

I’ll have to check it out. I like “Something Wicked This Way Comes” and of course, having the pseudo-libertarian bent I do, “Fahrenheit 451” is amazing. I don’t like anyone trying to restrict my thoughts ya know. He can paint a scary picture with his words to be sure.

Thank you Christopher. I was posting more frequently, but I just moved and am in school right now as well as working full time, so it has slowed me down a bit.
