Written By Ray Bradbury
FROM PLANET STORIES: Mad! impossible world! Sun-blasted by day, cold-wracked by night--and life condensed by radiation into eight days! Sim eyed the Ship--if he only dared reach it and escape! ... but it was more than half an hour distant--perhaps the limit of life itself!
This was an interesting taste of Bradbury's shorter fiction. I've always enjoyed his ability as a gifted wordsmith, and this piece doesn't disappoint. He has such a wonderful way of describing the characters and action, that you are completely immersed. I listened to this one while walking the dog, and found myself noticing small nuances of the world around me as I walked and listened. This story would be a great introduction to the writing style of Bradbury for those of you who haven't read him. And for writers, this is a writing style you may choose to emulate.
