What I learned from Ray's writing

I havent read many Ray Bradbury books in the past, but I intend to catch up fast now that I have more reading time.

One of Ray's books that I read in the seventies taught me a lifelong lesson: 'Never stare too long upon a persons tattoos by the light of a camp fire'.

[Or else...?]

Best wishes,

Quite true, but the Illustrated Man has much more to teach. Look a little closer ...

Er, always wear a tin hat when sleeping next to an illustrated man?

Seriously though, I take your point. There are lots of lessons in that story.

Cheers,

Tinfish

I read so many books of Ray Bradbury. But I like the most "Something Wicked This Way Comes". Do you ever read it?

Apple WAS a good word, till we noticed it was New Zealand spam.

Exactly! Never tried a New Zealand apple, either.
