A long, long time ago, I interviewed Ray Bradbury for the Chicago Tribune. It was a brief conversation for a short article, so we didn't speak long. But I remember that he was very nice and very interesting. (An example of "interesting": He insisted that the story of Icarus wasn't a myth but had really happened.)
After the article ran, I received a postcard from him that says a lot about his kindness and inspiring, child-like enthusiasm. For some reason, I've only read two of his books (Dandelion Wine and The Martian Chronicles) and a smattering of his short stories. Having been reminded what a special individual he was -- sadly, by his death -- I think I should pick up another Bradbury book soon. Any recommendations?
