Ray Bradbury is a modern cultural treasure. His disarming simplicity of style underlies a towering body of work unmatched in metaphorical power by any other American storyteller. And here are thirty-two of his most famous tales-prime examples of the poignant and mysterious poetry that Bradbury uniquely uncovers in the depths of the human soul, the otherwordly portraits that spring from the canvas of one of the century's great men of imagination. From a lonely coastal lighthouse to a sixty-million-year-old safari, from the pouring rain of Venus to the ominous silence of a murder scene, Ray Bradbury is our sure-handed guide not only to surprising and outrageous manifestations of the future but also to the wonders of the present that we could never have imagined on our own.

This collection of thirty-three short stories includes an assortment of science fiction, fantasy, and realism. As in most of these types of collections, I liked some stories more than others. One of my favorites is The Murderer (which is not about murder). It is about a man who is annoyed by the intrusion of electronic devices. It includes a wrist radio, which is similar in concept to the modern cell phone and was written in 1953. The protagonist questions the value of these technological advances and has taken to destroying them. I can only imagine what he would have thought of today’s social media! Another favorite is Frost and Fire, which tells of a civilization in which people live an entire lifetime in eight days. Overall, I found this collection well-written and creative, and particularly enjoyed the science fiction entries.

En esta nueva serie de maravillosas invenciones, Ray Bradbury ya no es sólo "el poeta de la ciencia ficción". el autor de algunas obras clásicas en la historia del género. Bradbury muestra aquí su ya famoso poder de expresar con la historia de un individuo -"El peatón", "El asesino", "El basurero-, toda una dramática visión del mundo y su posible futuro. Pero es también en este volumen el artista de lo extraordinario. lo fantasmagórico y lo hermoso, autor de curiosas parábolas chinas. de una narración aparentemente policial que se transforma poco a poco en una obsesionante pesadilla, de emocionadas historias fantásticas, y de algunos cuentos de un realismo poético y preciso que revelan una vez más la claridad y la intensidad de su arte. Uno de estos últimos, "Sol y sombra", recibió en 1954 el Premio Benjamin Franklin, otorgado al mejor cuento norteamericano del año.

The front cover promo of this says: "THE WORLD'S GREATEST LIVING SCIENCE-FICTION WRITER". NOT. I mean, c'mon, that's just embarassing! Maybe Bradbury never knew they did this but if he did he shd've objected. ( )

Golden Apples of the Sun collects several early Ray Bradbury stories into one volume. It is a delight to read. I had first read it in the early 1970's as a sort of escape from the heavier reading of my college coursework and decided recently to give it another read since so much time had passed since my first reading of it. I was surprised to see that at least two of the stories had been so powerful that I recalled them well even across all those years.
Before reading Bradbury in the 70's, I was a sort of literary snob about only spending time reading the classics and other high quality work. To me, Science Fiction did not fit that criteria, being escapist reading at best. But my exposure to Bradbury changed that juvenile perception and judgment and opened up an entirely new area of writing to read, enjoy and even learn from. From this experience, I think I largely overcame my snob's approach to reading and learned that the real definition of a good book is that it is one that keeps the reader engaged, makes him want to see what the next word is, what the next chapter holds and where the story leads. It is a book that causes the reader to sigh when the last page is read, opening the hope that the next book will be just as good.
FromThe Golden Apples, Bradbury went on to write many wonderful books and his influence went on to open me to works that would have escaped m notice had I not started with the best. ( )

Out there in the cold water, far from land, we waited every night for the coming of the fog, and it came, and we oiled the brass machinery and lit the fog light up in the stone tower. ("The fog horn")
To enter out into that silence that was the city at eight o'clock of a misty evening in November, to put your feet upon that buckling concrete walk, to step over grassy seams and make your way, hands in pockets, through the silences, that was what Mr. Leonard Mead most dearly loved to do. ("The pedestrian")
Into the air, over the valleys, under the stars, above a river, a pond, a road, flew Cecy. ("The April witch")
"Oh, the Good Time has come at last -" ("The wilderness")
William Acton rose to his feet. ("The fruit at the bottom of the bowl")

"Oh, the sea's full." McDunn puffed his pipe nervously, blinking. He had been nervous all day and hadn't said why. "For all our engines and so-called submarines, it'll be ten thousand centuries before we set foot on the real bottom of the sunken lands, in the fairy kingdoms there, and know real terror. Think of it, it's still the year 300,000 Before Christ down under there. While we've paraded around with trumpets, lopping off each other's countries and heads, they have been living beneath the sea twelve miles deep and cold in a time as old as the beard of a comet."
I saw it all, I knew it all - the million years of waiting alone, for someone to come back who never came back. The million years of isolation at the bottom of the sea, the insanity of time there, while the skies cleared of reptile-birds, the swamps dried on the continental lands, the sloths and saber-tooths had their day and sank in tar pits, and men ran like white ants upon the hills.
"That's life for you," said McDunn. "Someone always waiting for someone who never comes home. Always someone loving some thing more than that thing loves them. And after a while you want to destroy whatever that thing is, so it can't hurt you no more."
