Recommended to Dionisia by: my younger self
Read from October 16 to November 03, 2011 , read count: 1

I read this years and years ago. The younger me loved it. The current me likes it. A fitting October read. Loosely connected stories, generally unrelated. Some of my favorites from this collection:

"The Veldt" (Damn nature, you scary!)
"Kaleidoscope" (I would love to see this performed on the stage. Wow.)
"The Exiles" (This one also appeared in A Pleasure to Burn: Fahrenheit 451 Stories under a different title and inspired a new shelf)
"The Visitor" (People are dangerous. Desperate people especially so.)
"Zero Hour" (Even children can't be trusted.)
