Not from the book, mind you, but the computer game by Trillium/Telarium, written by Ray Bradbury and Byron Preiss. The story takes place after the book ends, and though there are multiple endings, the sacrificial ending of Guy embracing Clarisse as they get torched for uploading the world's library to the people really hit me. Besides, I was a teenager with an overactive imagination, so playing the part of Guy Montag for two months straight guaranteed I was going to fall in love with Clarisse.(less)

The Stain in the Stairwell by A.P. Sessler
"The Stain in the Stairwell started out with a few editing issues, but quickly cleaned up into something that exceeded my expectations. This short story is a creeper, and it gets under your skin in a truly masterful way.

The Stain in the Stairwell by A.P. Sessler
"A short horror story about a sentient stain (a ghost?) on the wall of an inner city apartment building. The story is well-written and gets progressively creepier as it goes along. Sessler does a great job of capturing the fears of childhood. "
