I Know Very Little

about author Ray Bradbury, who died Tuesday at the age of 91.

I have faith that many of our JSI readers are familiar with his work and can recommend where to start reading.

Any suggestions?

Take care–Susan Kaye

    Ray Bradbury was a legend in sci-fi writing. His Fahrenheit 451 is a classic, reversing the government’s role in censorship. Rather than protect works from being censored, all books were banned. Firemen burned books (and the houses that held them). He had a brilliant, creative mind. I have several of his books and short story collections, but I think that Fahrenheit 451 was his best.

    When I read Fahrenheit 451 in high school, we did not know we were reading an abridged (or censored) version. All of the cursing had been edited out. (Sort of ironic that a book about censorship was edited without the author’s permission.) Therefore, I assigned to my high schoolers in a Christian school about 30 years later in total innocence. When they started reading it and bringing it to me, along with complaints from their parents, I did a little research and found that the curse words had been restored just the previous year. Lucky me!

    Along with Fahrenheit 451, you might take look at Dandelion Wine or a Medicine for Melancholy or any short story collection. The Strange DEath of Dudley Stone, Among other stories, is worth a look.

      Thanks Charles. I like the sound of Medicine for Melancholy just because I like the word, “melancholy.”

Why yes, we DO want a piece of your mind. ;-)
