it was amazing
Read in June, 2012

On the cover of this book, above Ray Bradbury's name, is written this line: "The World's Greatest Living Science Fiction Writer." This edition was published in 1976, so this may have been true then (although I'm sure there are many that would disagree with the "greatest"), but now that Ray Bradbury has died, we may say he was our greatest...what? He wrote more than science fiction. He wrote tales of horror ("The October Game"), of summer loves and losses, and of fantasy and witchery. So, like Kurt Vonnegut, there was no easy box to put him into, and so into the science fiction box he and Vonnegut went. Hopefully, now that he, like Venus, has passed before the face of the sun and off into the universe, he can be let out of that box and allowed to inhabit the multiverse of the written word- he was one of our greatest.

I have had this book since I was a teenager and now I'm in my 50's! It's seen some wear and many readings over the years....
