Science Fiction - just another excuse to write good stories
I am currently reading The Best Short Stories of Ray Bradbury, a book which I have just discovered in my garage stash. Some of the stories are dated with their reference to years which have come and gone without the advent of flying cars or completely autonomised homes, but the essence of the stories ring true. Bradbury writes about human nature, and this never changes, no matter how 'modern' we think we are. In this age of 'the latest thing', it's nice to delve back into the bookshelf and see the legacy left by yesterday's authors.
