| Book Description: |
Explores the life and work of Ray Bradbury from a variety of perspectives. Noting the impact of the Southwest on Bradbury, some of the essays analyse Bradbury's southwest metaphors; other essays view Bradbury via the lens of post-colonialism; while others view Bradbury sociologically. From the scientific side, four essays by astronomers document how Bradbury formed the minds of many budding scientists with his vision.
