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 32 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 60-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.

Well worth it if only for "Here there by Tygers" and "Frost and Fire." These are two stories that give imaginative language to some of our deepest feelings and fears.
The narrator is a bit too melancholic -- certainly there is an underlying sadness to many of the stories, but the narrator's style overlays the entire collection more despair than the stories naturally elicit.
Even so, Bradbury's storytelling power is so strong that it overcomes the narrator's one-stringed guitar.
