Earlier this year, I did one of my frequent visits to Goodwill and was awed to see an entire collection of golden age science fiction. Included was the first edition of this book, complete in its paper dust cover.

As far as reviewing it-- it's Bradbury. I had only read two of the stories before, and I had never read his collected works. I was surprised at the amount of literary fiction; I always think of him as more of a genre writer. His writing is elegant and deep. I especially loved "The Murderer," which foretold modern media like Facebook and Twitter fifty years in advance, "The Two Where No One Got Off" an intriguing story though the title made me snicker, and the heartbreaking classic "All Summer in a Day" about a little girl who yearns for the sun of Earth.
