Ray Bradbury’s internationally acclaimed novel Fahrenheit 451 is a masterwork of twentieth-century literature set in a bleak, dystopian future. Guy Montag is a fireman. In his world, where television rules and literature is on the brink of extinction, firemen start fires rather than put them out. His job is to destroy the most illegal of commodities, the printed book, along with the houses in which they are hidden. Montag never questions the destruction and ruin his actions produce, returning each day to his bland life and wife, Mildred, who spends all day with her television family.

Though Bradbury explores various themes and genres, the foundation of his stories always lie in everyday human emotions - relationships between various familial and social structures, parenting, friendships, alienation, ambition, survival, adaptation and so forth. The basic human emotions drive Bradbury's stories and aren't easily visible at a superficial glance. These stories make one think and feel entertained at the same time. When the theme of a story is examined in the context of the characters, familiar emotions can be recognized.

This page collects many Ray Bradbury stories for your reading enjoyment. For now, it includes stories from the following collections: Dark Carnival. The narrator tells the story of his time in Dublin working as a screenwriter. On the night before Lent, the narrator asks Nick what he’s going to give up.

Raise Giant Mushrooms in Your Cellar! Hugh Fortnum woke to Saturday’s commotions and lay, eyes shut, savoring each in its turn. Across the hall, Tom. Across the hall, Tom actually taking a shower. Far off in the bumblebee dragonfly light, whose voice was already damning the weather, the time, and the tides? Mrs Goodbody? Yes. That Christian giantess, six-foot tall with her shoes off, the gardener extraordinary, the octogenarian dietician and town philosopher

Included here are famous tales like 'Sound of Thunder', in which the carelessness of a group of time-travellers leads to disastrous consequences, and 'The Veldt', in which two seemingly innocent young children transform their nursery into a lethal trap. Here are the Martian stories, tales that vividly animate the red planet with its brittle cities and double-mooned sky. Here are stories which speak of a special nostalgia for Green Town, Illinois, the perfect setting for a seemingly cloudless childhood - except for the unknown terror lurking in the ravine. Here are the Irish stories and the Mexican stories, linked across their separate geographies by Bradbury's astonishing inventiveness. Here, too, are thrilling, terrifying stories such as 'The Fog Horn' - perfect for reading under the covers. Read for the first time, these stories are a feast for the imagination; read again - and again - they reveal new, dazzling facets of a master storyteller's extraordinary art.

  • For no apparent reason I recently decided to re-read Fahrenheit 451 after many decades. The book literally fell apart as I was reading it, causing me to buy a new copy and this fine volume of his short stories, 100 in all from 1943 to 1980 (judging by the copyright dates). There's always a danger that stories like this show their age and certainly he reflects many of the concerns of the time, particularly the fear of nuclear war and the implications of space travel. Although some of the ideas about the habitability of Mars and other planets are clearly wrong, yet they really don't detract much from the stories as they are more about the human condition than scientific accuracy.
    I was expecting science fiction or fantasy stories and there are plenty of those usually with an intriguing twist ; one can see the influence on the Twilight Zone. However, there is much more than that, with tales of rural America, Ireland and even of a Cuban parrot to which Hemingway has dictated his final work. There are stories of coming of age, of marriage and of dying, all well told. Perhaps the prose can get a little flowery at times but as each story is relatively short it really is not any major issue.
    This Everyman edition is a really well made and produced book, nearly 1100 pages in total, even including a permanent book mark. My only gripe is that the date each story is written is not included. Perhaps this was for a specific reason but I think being able to place the work in time would have helped in some cases. With this reservation I would definitely recommend this collection.

  • Throughout the last 20 years I would come across something that would remind me of a story I'd read in high school ... that I could have sworn was Bradbury but I just could not figure it out... (my Sci-Fi english teacher had a mad crush on Bradbury :) so we read a lot of short stories). I finally typed some of the story I could remember into the magical google machine and found it!!! Then the hunt was on to which compilation book would be the best option, since you can't go wrong with more Bradbury, so might as well get one with a lot of other works.

    The story I couldn't remember the name of was The Veldt. It had elements that I kept triggering on when rereading The Martian Chronicles. SO GLAD I finally found it. Read that story as soon as I got this. Then A Sound of Thunder to further my travels down memory lane. Now I've started from the beginning to read all the stories bit by bit.

    There is just something about his writing style that works for me, though I cannot articulate why. I'm sure it has to do somewhat with reading it when I was young and its made an impression on me, but I like his style and his way of working in real life themes in fantastical (especially in his writing times) and scarily predictive stories.

    Now that I think about it, I think my aversion to 'smart' houses stems from his stories lol. Might save my life in the future. :)

    About the book itself - good binding, big enough that they have two different ribbons to keep your place. Definitely recommend.
