Book Four

The Toynbee Convector, by Ray Bradbury

This book may be out of print; I had trouble finding a link for it on Amazon. It's a re-read -- a book of very short stories that I've owned forever. F picked it up off my shelf originally because he likes short stories. I started reading it since it was nearby, and short stories are handy for reading before bed.

The stories are short enough that many of them are under 10 pages. They are quick and easy to read. Some supernatural, some science fiction, and some hard-to-classify stories about, well, just regular people. Some of the stories were excellent: a couple of ghost stories made me laugh out loud while my skin crawled at the end. A few were interesting, written in Bradbury's ethereal style that confuses while it intrigues me. A few of the stories were somewhere inbetween boring and annoying -- but fortunately those were in the minority.
