Favorite 'obscure' story

BH, cool name indeed! Blind Henry is a great character.
Did you ever get to read "Tomorrow's Child"?
I think another "obscure" RB story is "Powerhouse". Not one of my faves, but not much discussed.

Brailing II,

Nope I haven't found Tomorrow's Child yet. Over the weekend I looked through my Bradbury collection, but no luck. Any ideas where I might be able to locate it?

I seem to remember hearing about the story Powerhouse. Maybe I read about it in Sam Weller's book or on this site? I'll look for both of them.

So what's the story about the mushroom aliens growing in the basement, or something like that?

Best wishes.

BH

Blind Henry, it sounds like you need to use the Bradburymedia Short Story Finder!

But is it available in a Braille version?

OK, you saw that one coming.

Philnic, excellent! This is very helpful. I've not been to that website before.

Doug, good one! Thankfully my screen name personna is only visually impaired.

I hope to read Tomorrow's Child this weekend after I stop by the library.

No, Blind Henry will have to invest in a screen reader!

Hi,everyone!
I am glad i've at last done this-found this site.I adore reading Bradbury.His books are a kind of revelation to me.Unfortunately there are not much of them sold in my country.Besides,i want to read them in English.I've read here how you guys give advice and so on.
Can anyone tell me how to write a letter to Ray Bradbury himself?And can anyone send me his "Farewell summer" in English by mail?
I would be really greatful!!

I'm trying to remember one of my favorite RB stories.... but no one can seem to ID the title for me.

It has to do with man trying to survive on an alien planet where he has crashed. He beleives he is forcing an abandoned alien city to adapt to his needs, when in fact it is the city that has forced him to adapt.

I started a thred regarding this in the Fav book forum. Can someone please help? I'd like to get the story for someone as a gift.
