Ray Bradbury The Smile In the town square the queue had formed at five in the morning, while cocks were crowing far out in the rimed country and there were no fires. All about, among the ruined buildings, bits of mist had clung at first, but now with the new light of seven oclock it was beginning to disperse. Down the road, in twos and threes, more people were gathering in for the day of marketing the day of festival. The small bay stood immediately behind two men who had been talking loudly in ...

Ray Bradbury ZaharoffRichter Mark V In the twilight just before sunrise, it was the most ordinary-looking building he had seen since the chicken farm of his youth. It stood in the middle of an empty field full of cricket weeds and cacti, mostly dust and some neglected footpaths in the half darkness. Charlie Crowe left the Rolls-Royce engine run-fling at the curb behind him and babbled going along the shadowed path, leading the way for Rank Gibson, who glanced back at the gently purring car. ...

Ray Bradbury The Wonderful Ice Cream Suit It was summer twilight in the city and out front of the quiet-clicking pool-hall three young Mexican-American men breathed the warm air and looked around at the world.

Hey, sighed Martinez, at last. He was the youngest, the most ...

Ray Bradbury The Witch Door It was a pounding on a door, a furious, frantic, insistent pounding, born of hysteria and fear and a great desire to be heard, to be freed, to be let loose, to escape. It was a wrenching at hidden paneling, it was a hollow knocking, a rapping, a testing, a clawing It was a scratching at hollow boards, a ripping at bedded nails it was a muffled closet shouting and demanding, far away, and a call to be noticed, followed by a silence. The silence was the most empty and ...

But they never glanced at the window where the night gathered deep and the stars came out bright and cold. Listen said Janice. A sound like a steamboat down the river, but it was a rocket in the sky. And beyond that banjos playing No, only the summer-night crickets in this year 2003. ...

When they uncovered their heads to mop their lined and pinkened brows, their hair was white and soaked through, like something that had been out of the light for years. One of the men commented that his shoes felt like two loaves of baked ...

Honey, youll be home in six hours, he said. ...
