I am hoping that a Bradbury fan may be able to help me with the name of one of Ray's short stories.
I read this story when I was young and want to get hold of it for my son to read.
It is the story of some miniature aliens who land on Earth inside a tool shed. Their captain keeps a log of their journey detailing the perils of their exploration of the new planet (including a battle with a 'great beast' which is actually an everyday cat.)
If someone could remember the name I would be most appreciative.
Hi peejay76, and welcome.
I don't recognise that as a Bradbury story (maybe somebody else will, however). What it SOUNDS like, though, is an episode of THE TWILIGHT ZONE written by Richard Matheson, called "The Invaders". There is a plot summary here:
Matheson and Bradbury stories are often mistaken for each other. Many of Matheson's TWILIGHT ZONE scripts were based on his own short stories, but this one was original for TV.
I don't that is the one - but it does looks very interesting. I will have to have a look at some of Matheson's work.
But you have got me thinking that perhaps it was not a Ray Bradbury story after all?
I will keep googling and report back if I find any results.
Okay I am still not finding too much information to verify this but I think the story was actually from a John Wyndham short story collection named "Meteor". Not sure why I thought it was one of Rays Bradbury's stories. Thanks for making me think outside the box Phil.
