Having sold my 'video games' computer a few months ago, I now have more leisure time for reading. I'm therefore looking forward to reading many of the Ray Bradbury books listed on this forum.
I havent read many of Ray's books; but the ones that stand out the most are Dandelion Wine, which I read in the late seventies, and The Illustrated Man. (Once read, never quite forgotten
Best wishes and happy reading,
PS: Any suggestions for a book containing some of Ray Bradbury's most weird and interesting stories, would be much appreciated.

The Martian Chronicles would be a great place to start, even if you have already read it. This might fan the flames and you will then be well on your way...
For 'weird', try 'The October Country - some of RB's best early tales of terror and oddity.
Try to find "the stories of Ray Bradbury"
it is a great collection.
Thanks for these suggestions everyone, I'll try and check them out.
'The Man Upstairs' sounds like an interestingly weird story. Anyone read it?
Great story, you will think twice about stuffing next time you eat a chicken or turkey. It made me laugh!
I read "Have I Got A Chocolate Bar For You"
today, and found it wonderful. It is in The Stories Of Ray Bradbury. That collection is worth finding!
I went online to my local libary today and discovered that they have 'The Stories Of Ray Bradbury' and 'October Country'.
I'm looking forward to some quality reading time over the next few weeks
I have read several times here that The Stories of Ray Bradbury is one of your favourites so I ordered a used copy. I used to check out that very collection at the library often. It's a huge anthology so I'm excited to soon add it to my mainly paperback collection(used and highlighted, by choice). Thanks.
"Have I got a chocolate bar for you" Is an excellent story,quite humorous, isn't it?
