Ray Bradbury's The Illustrated Man  was always one of my favorite books. It featured a selection of wonderful science fiction stories including The Veldt, The Long Rain, The Rocket Man, The City and The Last Night Of The World to name a few. Three of the stories were adapted into a film version of The Illustrated Man  and a new adaptation by Zack Snyder is said to be in the works.
Bradbury also penned the classic The Martian Chronicles , Fahrenheit 451  and Something Wicked This Way Comes . His body of work is indeed large, but these were certainly literary highlights and deserve a place on any self-respecting science fiction fan's book shelf. For me, it was The Illustrated Man that left an indelible impression on this particular Sci-Fi Fanatic with stories that were unforgettable.
In television, Bradbury was the man behind writing The Twilight Zone, Season Three, Episode 100, I Sing The Body Electric . It was based on his own short story and, unfortunately, is not well-regarded in The Twilight Zone pantheon. Nonetheless, he also penned several stories for the long-running Alfred Hitchcock Presents [1955-1965].
The cover of my copy of The Illustrated Man. His timeless work remains and will continue to be revisited and analyzed time in memoriam and should be. His work is science fiction storytelling at its finest. The science fiction world will miss him, but is fortunate to have a wealth of work from which to appreciate, return and forever draw inspiration. I must read them again soon. Ray Bradbury was 91.
