What Next!?

https://mars.nasa.gov/technolo...dynamic-performance/

A very memorable student in my HS English classes went on to play a highly significant role in the amazing advancements the Mars expeditions have realized throughout recent years. We enjoyed countless RB works, with Martian Chronicles a required reading. It was studied for its poetic style, imaginative projections, and far-reaching social commentaries.

A young man from a very small town, a hardworking family, and with a love for what he is doing: Mr. Bradbury would be pleased!

I read 96 pages of a book only to find a large section missing and another repeated. I ordered another copy and if that turns out to be all right I think for the first time in my life I'll put a book in the trash. The odd thing was it was ex-library with numerous due dates and no one seems to have complained of the defect. My nephew said to look on the bright side--in the universe of Fahrenheit 451, if I asked for a book I'd be burned alive!

Dandelion, that has happened to me twice!

On two occasions I ordered large short story anthologies, only to find pages missing or incomplete due to a binding error. Fortunately, in both cases, only one story of many was affected. And in one of the two cases I had the affected story in another book, anyway.

So frustrating, especially when you have the book imported with high shipping costs.

I have an Alfred Hitchcock anthology where a binding error affected a novella but I'm keeping it as I don't intend to read that novella anyway. In that case a librarian made a note of it. In the case of the novel of course it affects the whole book and I wouldn't want to pass it on to anyone else.
