The Bradbury Chronicles book. Nolan, author of Logan's Run and master anthologizer Greenberg have created a tribute worthy of the man who has given readers such vintage classics as Fahrenheit 451, Something Wicked This Comes and, of course, The Martian Chronicles.

Ray Bradbury, author of more than 500 stories, poems, essays, plays, films, television plays, radio, music, and comic books, was born on August 22, 1920, in Waukegan, Illinois. Twice during his childhood, Bradbury moved with his family to Arizona, returning to the midwest both times before settling permanently in Los Angeles in 1934. At the age of fifteen, Bradbury began submitting short stories to national magazines, beginning his career as one of the best known science-fiction writers of all time

Twenty-two authors paid tribute to Ray Bradbury in 1991 by contributing stories to this collection. Most are inspired by or extensions of other Bradbury stories, like The Martian Chronicles or Fahrenheit 451. Some even try to ape his style, with mixed results. I enjoyed the volume, though there are only a few standouts: Bradbury's own contribution "The Troll," about a bridge warden who meets up with a skeptic; Gregory Benford's "Centigrade 233," about another dystopian reason to burn books; and Orson Scott Card's "Feed the Baby of Love," about someone coming to a little Illinois town for winsome self-discovery. One or two stories were too dark for my taste (and one had a surprising amount of R-rated language), but the good definitely outweighs the bad here.

Recommended for Bradbury fans.

As a long-time fan of Ray Bradbury's wonderful work, I was pleased to find this excellent anthology celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of his first professional publication. It is an outstanding collection, featuring the work of such noted authors as Ed Gorman, Orson Scott Card, Richard Matheson and Charles Beaumont. I particularly enjoyed Charles Grant's "One Life, In an Hourglass", a sequel to Something Wicked This Way Comes, and F. Paul Wilson's "The November Game", the logical sequel to "The October Game". These are two of the darkest short stories I have read in quite awhile.

All these stories evoke the style and spirit of Bradbury while retaining the sensibilities of the authors who penned (processed?) them. For those familiar with Bradbury, "The Dandelion Chronicles" by William F. Nolan will make you laugh. Book lovers will be enraged by Gregory Benford's "Centigrade 233". Orson Scott Card's entry, "Feed the Baby of Love" will touch you more because of what doesn't happen than because of what does.

This book reminded me of the many splendid hours of reading enjoyment I owe to Ray Bradbury. From "The Small Assassin" to Something Wicked This Way Comes, this man has created a formidable body of work. Read The Bradbury Chronicles, then read or reread the work that inspired it. It'll be time well spent.

An anthology of stories paying homage to works of the author in question via prequel, pastiches, extension or spoof, or just occasionally referential, as in Benford's CEntigrade 233, which may just be the best story here.

A motley collection, and as such it is only average. Big-time Bradbury fans will enjoy it more, I think, perhaps.

One Ray Bradbury story and a reminiscence, a few parodies, and a large number of "in the same vein as." Best: "Obsession," in which Uncle Einar goes on what amounts to Geraldo; "the Muse," which is a humorous encounter between the author and Ray Bradbury's muse Polyhymnia; "Feed the Baby of Love" by Orson Scott Card, in which an ex-recording star encounters Douglas Spaulding, his grand-father Douglas Spaulding, and his son Douglas Spaulding--they play a game "more satanic than Dungeons and Dragons" called "Feed the Baby of Love Many Beans or Perish in the Flames of Hell"--and "The Dandelion Chronicles" by William F. Nolan, a parody pure and simple: "On board [the space ship] were Irish priests and simple Mexican peons and robust lightning-rod salesmen and rag-tag Dublin beggars and robots who cunningly resembled Irish priests and simple Mexican peons and robust lightning-rod salesmen and rag-tag Dublin beggars." Great fun!
