Four Places to Start with the Work of Ray Bradbury | #SciFiSunday
Although my favorite Bradbury book Dandelion Wine didn’t make the cut, my hat still goes off to this stellar list. Where would I be without sci-fi recs from Tor.com?
I’ve always preferred the writers I discover on my own to the writers others—be they teachers or friends—recommend to me.
Ray Bradbury is one such writer.
More than that, he’s one of my literary heroes, one of the authors who inspired and solidified my desire to be a writer. And I’m hardly alone—within the SF community, he’s one of a handful of iconic authors most often cited as an influence and a favorite, and many non-SF readers frequently cite him as their gateway into the broad genre of Speculative Fiction.
