Zounds! Egad, even!
All I can say is, "Neither a borrower nor a lender be - for loan oft loses both itself and friend!"
(This applies to Bradbury books in particular, forsooth!)

Sadly, Braling II, owing to what you have just said I remember 39 years ago when Ray gave me three paperback books when I was sitting in his living room, only years later to lend two of them out never to see them again. Alas!

Unfortunatly I had to give back my first reading copy, of the Iluustrated Man to my friend Cheryl.
After she read it on Burtons Look out on Hebgen Lake in Montana, many years ago when I was 11..

I haven't yet read all Ray's stories, but out of the ones I've read, (it's hard to pick) I really liked the one about the unterderseaboat captain.

I also thought the one about his dad with Alzheimer's was very touching, my Gram had that too, so I could really relate.

Like the genius himself says, "I have no favourites."

I also find it hard to choose. But if a gun were held to my head, and I had to select a few, they would be:

The Watchers

By the Numbers!

The Rocket

The Wind

The Halloween Tree is obviously the greatest masterpiece ever made.

"The Martian Chronicles" is the best collection of stories by RB.

Or anyone, for that!


"Live Forever!"

The Poems.
"A Scent of Sarsaparilla"
"G.B.S. Mark V"
"At the End of the Nonth Year"
And - even more than "I Sing the Body Electric" -

"Have I got a Chocolate Bar for You!"


"Save your freedom. If anyone tells you you may not read Harry Potter because of 'witchcraft', run! Shun him. He's a Fireman."
