Remembering Ray Bradbury
Fahrenheit 451: This one is a given for any fan of dystopian literature. And in this case, his novel is actually about books and their importance in society.
From the Dust Returned: a Family Remembrance: Assembled from some of his serialized short stories, there is only one human character in an expansive cast of ghouls and supernatural misfits. And the message? Never stop having faith.
Something Wicked This Way Comes: I've always thought there was something dark, a little eerie about carnivals, and Bradbury enforces my opinion in this novel.
The Illustrated Man: In a world in which tattoos are becoming increasingly popular and socially acceptable, this sixty year old set of short stories is especially applicable. A man's tattoos all tell a different story.
"Don't think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It's self-conscious, and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can't try to do things. You simply must do things." - Ray Bradbury
