Today is Ray Bradbury's Birthday - Go read!

I have never listened to anyone who criticized my taste in space travel, sideshows or gorillas. When this occurs, I pack up my dinosaurs and leave the room.
- Ray Bradbury
The author of Fahrenheit 451 was born on this day in 1920.
(from goodreads quote of the day)

Here's one of my favorites: "There Will Come Soft Rains"

http://www.jerrywbrown.com/datafile/...s_Bradbury.pdf

or "A Sound of Thunder"

http://www.lasalle.edu/~didio/course...of_thunder.htm

and I absolute love "The Veldt"

"The Fog Horn" is a good short one:

Unfortunately, because of his dislike for the Internet and ebooks, the only legal novel/compilation available is Fahrenheit 451. Apparently, before he died, he did authorize his back-list to be released as ebooks, but as far as know none are currently available.

Yes, read the paidcontent one previously.

But you know... When would have been a perfect day to release at least a portion of that back-list? Even one or two released on his birthday would have been tremendous.

Ah well. I promise not to find any on the darknet and will wait for a legal release. I really want "Something Wicked This Way Comes".

NASA didn't forget the Martian Chronicler's birthday:

Quote:
NASA's Curiosity rover made its first drive on Mars today, more than two weeks after its high-stakes landing on the Red Planet. To celebrate the day, as well as what would have been the late science-fiction writer Ray Bradbury's 92nd birthday, NASA said the rover's landing site would be forever known as Bradbury Landing.
I think RB would have been pleased.

You can get the gargantuan "Stories" (Volumes 1 & 2) in eBook form here in the UK, plus a few other odds and ends.

I read Farenheit 451 at the age of 9-ish, and it frightened the life out of me ....

The thought of that guy rolling over ....

But as it's his birthday, and I'm a big boy now .... I forgive.

Naturally, I now realise he iswas a wonderful writer .....
