    I don t envy the editors of this collection There are easier tasks than deciding what to choose from the 500 stories Brad Bradbury has written in his 90 years These two volumes combine about 150 of them stories, not years , so this is the biggest collection to date.There are some classics in here that have been anthologi

    I have focused on short story lot last year, as I was not ready to invest in another science fiction or fantasy book series, and I generally don t like to read stand alone books For me the short story format is really unique because in space of few pages a author has not only create a whole world to his user, but also has to re
