Science Fiction

The Martian Chronicles, Ray Bradbury

It transports us back to a more innocent time, where rockets were the future and taking one to Mars seemed as easy as going to the corner store.--yet despite its ease of access, Mars never loses its mystery.
Brenda Barnes-Clark, author of The Runaways: A Billie Rose Tackett Horse Adventure

An outstanding example of a series of short stories building into a powerful and innovative novel.
Seb Kirby, author of Take No More

What other authors saying about The Martian Chronicles, by Ray Bradbury:

There is a collection of stories that has been my long-time favourite; it is the first thing I think about when the conversation turns to science fiction. As a child, I remember being impressed by the author's imagination. It was my first immersion in the concept of 'otherness.' As an author, I noted the atmospheric feel and the beautiful rhythm of the prose. Now I often find myself reflecting on the change in the perception of the great feat described in the stories - colonization of Mars. I feel nothing less than a sense of awe when I remember that the very concept was nothing but science fiction when I first read the book. Today is a different matter, and I still hope that I will see human footprints on Mars in my lifetime.
Khira Allen, author of Songbird Ascension

What other authors saying about Ray Bradbury:

Bradbury had an incredible gift for description that fills his readers with wonder.
Brenda Barnes-Clark, author of The Runaways: A Billie Rose Tackett Horse Adventure

I admire his imagination and his skill in telling a story with such simplicity.
Seb Kirby, author of Take No More

He transports me completely.
Fearghus Heatley, author of A Sky of Engines

Besides his books of high acclaim, I have met him personally, and listened to his speeches on writing and each time I was moved to tears with his joy of writing.
Joseph D Di Lella, author of The Tao of Star Trek: Finding Your Inner Self Through Outer Space

Ray Bradbury has influenced my writing style considerably. Back in my younger days, he inspired me to write in the first place.
Lily Ashton, author of Paint a Murder

He is the master of the use of metaphor in his storytelling. Through my reading of his books, I have developed my practice of using metaphor as a major element of my storytelling in both fiction and non-fiction books.
Dr. Joseph Daniel Di Lella, author of The Tao of Star Trek: Finding Your Inner Self Through Outer Space
