I like a Medicine of Meloncholy, the title story always lifts me, and sets off my romance zone, I like reading it to my wife when she is feeling down... That, and Hopscotch. Mr Bradbury is prime when writing about LOVE love.
The Illustrated Man first, and then the Martian Chronicles.
It's very hard to decide because everything he's written is touched with so much magic, everything he's written is touched with magic and has a timeless appeal. My sons are only six and four, and I look forward to the day they can enjoy his stories too.

Hey to everybody!I think every Bradbury's story or novel is wonderful and unique!It concerns not only sense but language too. Almost every word of his is a metaphor or any other stylistic device which produces a tremendous effect on a reader bringing him/her into the narration!As for my favourite one it's Dandelion Wine.I liked it because it's probably one of the most philosophic works of his. Moreover it's a bit autobiographical. I admire the way he managed to join all the pieces of reality (I mean different spheres of life and different consepts of his imagination) into the plot of a boy's 3-month growing up.Seems you become the hero youself and open the world again!!!
Uncle, just a comment. My cousin's husband works on the crew of Everwood. He see that the vanity trailers are at the locations when they need to be. Their daughter worked one season as a location finder for their shoots.

1. "The Martian Chronicles" is as good as the Burroughs stories of Barsoom - better! 2. "Dandelion Wine" is a thing of aesthetic beauty. 3. "Something Wicked This Way Comes" is a perfect autumn horror. 4. "Dark Carnival" is a fine early collection of dark fantasy.
That's just the top four. Even below average Bradbury stands head and shoulders above 90% of the fiction available.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Doug Spaulding,
