I make no secret of my love for Ray Bradbury’s writing, and I’ve been in love with his books for a very long time. I Sing The Body Electric, The Illustrated Man, The Machineries of Joy, and The Martian Chronicles were all available on my parents’ bookshelves, and I fell hook, line and sinker for Bradbury’s mix of horror, science fiction, and poetic prose. I remain a fan to this day.
In high school, we were given an assignment to write about an author we liked, and I ended up writing about Ray Bradbury. Here’s that assignment – in Swedish (of course) – done in that old-school style that seems so dated it’s almost quaint by today’s word-processing standards!
