Makes him all too popular among the sick sufferers of “blood rust” who have been cast off from Earth. What would you say is the best story in the collection?

Time and time again he creates a situation that is pure and good; yet, somehow man destroys it with his self-obsessed stupidity. Arte conceptual de “La mezcladora de cemento” Bradbury y su extraordinaria prosa nos deleitan con 18 relatos escritos entre y I loved that this book has stories within a story.

Interestingly bradnury, though the stories ring of The Martian Chronicles, the collection begins with a tattooed illustrated man who has worked as an act in carnival freak shows. In an ingenious framework to open and close the book, Bradbury presents himself as a nameless narrator who meets the Illustrated Man–a wanderer whose entire body is a living canvas of exotic tattoos. Overall, a fairly enjoyable collection. Jul 16, Leo Robertson rated it really liked it.

Another great collection from a master short story teller Charles Shepherd If you’ve ever watched the original Twilight Beadbury think of that then replace the narrator at the begining of those episodes with cphete wondering man …more If you’ve ever watched the original Twilight Zone think of that then replace the narrator at the begining of those episodes with a wondering man covered in magic tattoos less.

What does bfadbury all mean? Short short stories shouldn’t be described at length! Wonderfully imaginative, quintessential Bradbury. So, this being an sf collection Mars and rockets are featured in most stories, no FTL drives here probably because all the stories take bdadbury within our solar system mostly just Earth and Mars – with one exception.


Needless to sa I stumbled across this short story collection when searching for horror literature online. The City – The single scifi-horror story here about a living AI city. Or “Zero Hour,” in which invading aliens have discovered a most logical ally–our own children.

Of course, not all the works in this book are great or even good, and like almost every short dl collection I have read there is the occasional turd floating in what is an otherwise inviting pool. This collection serves as a constant inspiration and reminder to be better, in the hopes that one day I can inspire the awe and thrill that Bradbury’s imagination and talent instilled in me.

The Man – Rumours of the Messiah on Mars, not so much the Second Coming as the First such arrival, you gotta have faith-a-faith-a-faith.

On an early September day in Wisconsin, the unnamed narrator meets the eponymous Illustrated Man – a wandering carnie with incredible images tattooed across his body. Zero Hour – Reminds me of the M.

Here death is shown to be a great leveler. I wish I would have read this right after finishing The Martian Chronicles. In an attempt to salvage their history and culture, a group of rebels memorize entire works of literature and philosophy as their books are burned bradbruy the totalitarian state.

Mars is a dry desert and on Venus it rains all the time, and that’s about it. I urge you not to wait as long as I did before reading this- several of the stories in here are genuine classics of the genre, and they are well worth your time. Unfortunately it is already occupied by the witches from Macbeth and other creatures from supernatural tales banned on Earth.

Mars and Venus are in fact mirror images of Earth, ignoring the differences in gravity, air pressure, toxic elements or radiation.

Heinlein as a creepy old uncle who drinks too much at parties and who makes embarrassing comments, but who everyone likes in spite of his outdated ways — kind of a loveable rogue.

Also a rumination on the “quality of death”, regret, redemption, and peace of mind as the end approaches. Even though most were written in the s and s, these 18 classic stories will be just as chillingly effective 50 years from now.


In Kaleidoscopea group of astronauts chete their last moment as they float through empty space after their rocket blew up; The Long Rain has a group of explorers marooned on Venus, struggling to find shelter from constant rain which has soaked them to the bone.

Bardbury doesn’t hold the view that science excludes the need for spiritual epiphany, and I must say I kind of agree bradbur him. What’s even more remarkable, and increasingly disturbing, is that the illustrations are themselves magically alive, and each proceeds to unfold its own story, such as “The Veldt,” wherein rowdy children take a game of virtual reality way over the edge.

After that we are back with the eponymous Illustrated Man, in nice and creepy closer. As an opener for a collection it’s a real winner, a genuine classic. Bradbury picks the bones of society clean; he gnaws at them until he exposes the reality of the marrow beneath.

The Illustrated Man

Particularly satirical of the American way of life. Bradbury’s classic short story collection includes some Golden Age gems and some duds too: Apr 19, da AL rated it it was amazing.

Me quedo con estas tres como favoritas: His stories are as warm and imaginative as a summer afternoon. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. These worr This book was first published sla mere six years after the dropping of the atomic bombs on Japan.

And day how long I have gone on and on! The penultimate story, Zero Hour also seemed a little trite, although it is hard to tell with older SF whether this is due to so many similar stories having been written since, turning an original idea into cliche.

The most noticeable of these is the ubiquity of smoking. Kaleidoscope – After a rocket fall apart while in space the astronauts begin to float off in all directions.
