    Review: Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

    I found this dystopian novel to be somewhat disturbing - for the wrong reasons. The basic premise is that Montag is a "fireman" who goes around burning books - and any homes in which they are found. However, through the story we see him question his role in this, and face the moral problem of...

    Ray Bradbury's THE ILLUSTRATED MAN, Story by Story

    Here's a thread intended to be devoted to discussion of the stories that make up this classic volume. There's another thread on the book that discusses it in terms of a graphic novel adaptation. Probably the movie has been discussed at Chrons. It's my intention that this thread sticks to the...

    Ray Bradbury's THE MARTIAN CHRONICLES Story by Story

    Here begins a thread for the discussion -- possibly in-depth -- of a book that, once upon a time at least, was one of the first volumes that many people read when they were discovering science fiction. It's my intention that this thread be used for the discussion of the stories that make up...

    Ray Bradbury

    Hey, how come I can't see any Ray Bradbury discussions. I am new to the site so maybe he is in some hallowed hall of fame I am not aware of but I thought I would see him listed here. Has anyone else recently re-read his work and noticed how dated it is now. Obviously the science has changed...

    Ray Bradbury's Life in Three Volumes

    The middle one has appeared: http://www.washingtonpost.com/entertainment/books/review-ray-bradbury-unbound-by-jonathan-r-eller/2014/09/24/e30f5ed4-3dde-11e4-b03f-de718edeb92f_story.html?wprss=rss_books For me, this level of detail would probably be too much for Bradbury. I guess the only...

    Best of Ray Bradbury?

    For those of you who know of him, what are your favorites among his collections? I've found Dandelion Wine to be a real treat (probably my favorite because of how well he captured the youthful spirit of summer), as well as The Martian Chronicles. I thoroughly enjoyed The October Country as...

    I have a copy of this book on interlibrary loan, but, what with some other things that have arrived, won't betaking time to read the whole book. Your suggestions?

    Ray Bradbury

    Just learned via Brad Torgeson that Ray Bradbury died today aged 91. A good innings but still very sad.

    Looking for an illustrated ray bradbury

    I am looking for a book I had in the 80's. It was a colored illustrated collection I believe of Ray Bradbury stories. I remember it had The Veldt and a robot story with the laws of robotics. Can anyone help?

    Bradbury's October Country

    This is just a note to direct fans of Bradbury's collection of macabre stories to the Classic SF zone here at Chronicles Forums, and to a thread there on The Good Ray Bradbury Stories -- which will direct you to where I'm sort of blogging about the stories. ....It sounds more complicated than...

    The good Ray Bradbury stories

    I would like readers to compile here a list of the Ray Bradbury stories that they really like. I think many of us feel that Bradbury is an uneven writer; some of this stories, perhaps usually early ones, are favorites, while we don't care for some of his others. Hit or miss. (NB By "stories"...

    Favourite Ray Bradbury story?

    Do you have a favorite Ray Bradbury story? I like the Illustrated Man stuff. I thought that was a very clever way of putting the short stories together. I like the story about the kids who were addicted to the virtual nursery. The Veldt. Very insightful. I don't remember the name of it, and...

    Ray Bradbury

    I have not seen anyone mention Ray Bradbury, is it considered lame to like his books, especially his Science Fiction? Because I do, and I wonder if anyone else does.

    The Illustrated Man (Ray Bradbury)

    I recently re-read ray Bradbury's Illustrated Man. It's something I do every so often and this might help explain the ever-growing to-be-read pile. Anyway I was wondering what the book would be like illustrated. As a graphic novel. What do you think? One artist for the whole book or an artist...
