soosh: I have this book of like 500 stories by Ray Bradbury and it is the best thing ever.


*drool*

I own a lot of Bradbury, but not anything that has 500 stories by him.

yes, I'm talking about Zen.

Have you read Vonnegut's inustrial stuff?  It's even better.  Things like Player Piano, anything about working for a corporation.  Galapagos is really fantastic, too.

I spent almost my entire childhood reading Ray Bradbury. To this day, whenever something happens that makes me think of some weird story I read long ago, it always turns out to be one of Bradbury's.
