Each week at his Listen to the Echoes blog, Sam Weller, who is not only Ray Bradbury's biographer, but teaches a university course entirely devoted to the writer, will offer his choice of favourite Bradbury short stories. As he writes:
These stories will embody all the trademarks of vintage Bradbury: the lyrical language; the fantastic, original, and memorable ideas; and endings that sometimes surprise, sometimes sadden, always instruct and entertain. This list will be entirely subjective. These are my favorites. They will reflect a wide range, from weird tales to social science fiction to quiet and contemplative tales of contemporary literature. These tales are pure and classic Bradbury—our modern mythologist.A great introduction to this prolific writer's work. I'm certainly following along - what's one story a week?
