Ray Bradbury: Links & Memories

Let’s be crystal: I wanted to rip my copy of Dandelion Wine in half, okay? “I Sing the Body Electric” is like the worst episode of the Zone, ever. The Martian Chronicles doesn’t really work, does it. And there is astonishing (to this pagan) xenophobia in Something Wicked This Way Comes. But hey, you know what?

Ray Bradbury’s stories will be with us for a long, long time. Lucky for us, he wrote one or two good ones.
