About this book:
  • An extensive collection of imaginative short stories by a National Medal of the Arts–winning author of science fiction, fantasy, horror, and suspense. Fly to Mars and explore the mysteries of the red planet. Journey through time to futures ruled by cold computers and hear the deafening roar of dinosaurs in the past.

Available in one massive collection for the first time digitally, experience the wondrous mind of Ray Bradbury through one hundred of his all-time greatest tales. These are the stories that ask "What if?," the stories that make the mind turn, and those that are, in the true spirit of Ray Bradbury, best read under the safety of a blanket.

A must read for any Sci-fi fan. Bradbury was so forward looking. The Martian Chronicles were written 70 years ago and still read well. Thanks OP, a great find.

I remember reading the Martian Chronicles. A bit creepy and unusual, but I still enjoyed it.

I've got a lot of these on various platforms, but all of them for only $2 is pretty tempting.

Bradbury was from the same town in Illinois (Waukegan) as I. He used memories from his childhood as a setting for several works, you can walk around and see some of places that he describes in his stories.

He came back a few times for various charities and fundraisers and I had the chance to meet him a couple times. Unlike some authors, he was very outgoing and sociable, seemed like the kind of guy, you could sit and talk with for hours in a coffee shop.

Some of his stories were adapted for radio and you can listen to them using one of the Old Time Radio apps. Dimension X. Great stuff.

There's no proof Shakespeare was even a real person, likely John Dee or Francis Bacon.
