I don't know who the author is or the name of the book. It was a story I read about 35 years ago. I believe it was a short story collection. Story about a man who goes to a bone doctor (don't know if they specified chiropractor) and visit by visit the doctor removes his bones. Anyone out there know this story?

"Skeleton," by Ray Bradbury--definitely not about your average patient or bone doctor!

Ah, M.Munigant and his delicious...breadsticks. Now THAT's a great Halloween story.

planter, you can find it in the following Bradbury books: Dark Carnival, The October Country, The Vintage Bradbury, The Stories of Ray Bradbury.

Thanks Phil. Was going to go online to the library to order it. Now I know which books to reserve.

Since reading this story, at least one friend of mine has never touched breadsticks again!
