I have been reading about a book every two days. Here is the list. Many are from the Easton Press science fiction series, that I acquired several years ago and just now have the time to read them:
TIME AND AGAIN by Jack Finney (these were sent to me by a dear friend who grew up in New york and knew the places from the book.) FROM TIME TO TIME by Jack Finney
ENDER'S GAME by Orson Scott Card THE MOCKING PROGRAM by Alan Dean Foster THE LONGEST WAY HOME by Robert Silverberg THE GODS THEMSELVES by Isaac Asimov ODD JOHN by Olaf Stapledon THE DISPOSSESSED by Ursala K. LeGuin SWIFT THOUGHTS by George Zebrowski THE SNOW QUEEN by Joan D. Vinge FROM THE EARTH TO THE MOON by Jules Verne THE TIME MACHINE by Jules Verne
If you have not read any of these I highly recommend all of them as unique in the history of science fiction.

It is interesting to note that Ray Bradbury could've met H.G. Wells. Ray would've been 26 years old when Wells died, and Ray would have already been a published writer. Now to figure how to get oneself over to London.
Wells did visit the US in the 1930s or 1940s. He met Orson Welles, and their meeting was broadcast on radio. Orson was only five years older than Ray, so a Bradbury-H.G. meeting was feasible, if a little unlikely.
(Wells and Welles did, after all, have one very specific thing in common: WAR OF THE WORLDS.)
