Dear Doug,

Can you be a little more Concrete in your quote? I'm a little Mixed up about The answer to this one from 1949!

You win!

Do you know that it was published in a magazine way back in 1955?

Dear Doug,

Yes, The Concrete Mixer! Linnl confirms my 1949 date, April to be exact, from Thrilling Wonder Stories. What magazine are you referring to in 1955? My quote for the new game will come shortly.

"A moment before he had been hunting fleas in the fertile hair that clothed his muscular limbs, but now he was serious, so very serious it frightened me."

Obscure, yes, but still officially a Ray Bradbury story.

Again Doug, both of these magazines, be it 1949 or 1955, have beautiful girls on the cover. However, most of us read the 1955 periodical just for the stories!

Bradbury Scholars, since there have been no attempts at this quote, I'll start giving clues in a few days.

Maybe something from Futuria Fantasia? Published under a pseudonym? Or a collaboration with Henry Hasse?

Dear Phil,

Nice work! I knew I could count on you. Let's all pull out our copies of Futuria Fantasia, and find the very short story. The author will be listed as, Ray Bradbury.

I pulled but could not find! I think that green ink gets to me after a spell.

In remembrance of Ray on this Father's Day, I wish to share the answer to this quote. The short story is Gorgono and Slith, from Futuria Fantasia. Doug, or anybody else who wishes to play, please be my guest.

"The image I still have, seventy years later, is of my fine father, not for a moment making anything but a wry comment, carrying me through the night streets; probably the most beautiful memory a son ever had of someone who cared for him and loved him and didn't mind the long walk home through the night."
