Reviews

"The truth is, reading the vast new Everyman's Library edition of The Stories of Ray Bradbury, culling through its perfectly round 100 selections (and 1,000-plus pages), stopping to wonder why it has taken 30 years for this classic collection to join the hardcover literary canon, a thought slips in repeatedly: Stephen King was thinking way too small. ["Without Ray Bradbury, there would be no Stephen King." --Stephen King]. Without Ray Bradbury, there wouldn't be American pop culture.
He is the Shakespeare of American geek culture, which, in effect, is American pop culture. The Waukegan-born writer is a popularizer of ideas so frequently plundered, subjects so unusual yet routinely picked at, reading The Stories of Ray Bradbury becomes a crash course in not just genre but what its modern voice sounds like."
--Christopher Borrelli, Chicago Tribune
