He is the Shakespeare of American geek culture, which, in effect, is American pop culture. The Waukegan-born writer is a popularizer of ideas so frequently plundered, subjects so unusual yet routinely picked at, reading The Stories of Ray Bradbury becomes a crash course in not just genre but what its modern voice sounds like.”
—Christopher Borrelli, Chicago Tribune
More About the Author
Throughout his life, Bradbury liked to recount the story of meeting a carnival magician, Mr. Electrico, in 1932. At the end of his performance Electrico reached out to the twelve-year-old Bradbury, touched the boy with his sword, and commanded, "Live forever!" Bradbury later said, "I decided that was the greatest idea I had ever heard. I started writing every day. I never stopped."

Anyway, this is a book of Ray Bradbury's greatest stories, which means that these are some of the best stories that imaginative literature has to offer. Why not make it a two-fer and get the "Bradbury Stories" collection with it? Both are worthy, think of "The Stories of Ray Bradbury" is the top shelf A-list stuff, and "Bradbury Stories" is the Solid B list collection. Still great, and best of all, no repeat stories in the two collections! The man was so prolific that he could probably fill up a third volume with no repeats as well...
If you were a fan of the series "The Twilight Zone", you will love these stories. If you like science fiction in general you will love these stories. If you are a devotee at literature at its best, you will never forget these stories. Add this to your collection today!
"The Stories of Ray Bradbury" brings together the most intriguing, moving, frightening, and haunting tales from the many story collections the author assembled over his career. Stories come from "The Martian Chronicles," "The Illustrated Man," "Dandelion Wine," "Something Wicked This Way Comes," "The Golden Apples of the Sun," "R Is for Rocket," and other books. Nearly all of your favorite tales are here: "A Sound of Thunder," "The Veldt," "There Will Come Soft Rains," "The Fog Horn," "The Long Rain," "I Sing the Body Electric," and many more. My highest recommendation.

I've not read anything like what have been labeled the "mytho-poetic" stories - creations - of Ray Bradbury. His writings are nothing short of wonderful. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Larry E. Koewing
