    Every Saturday, of late, I've been reading a story from my Ray Bradbury Bantam Books (that I got in the 1960s and 1970s). I started with THE MARTIAN CHRONICLES, as that's the one with the earliest copyright date. I finished that last Saturday--the next one coming up is THE ILLUSTRATED MAN. I have most of the Bradbury Bantam collections, but I'm missing a couple that I read back in the old days. When the pandemic is over, I'll have to see if I can hunt down copies of those missing--I SING THE BODY ELECTRIC and S IS FOR SPACE. I especially like the Bantam Books that had the trade dress with Bradbury's face on the cover. As a kid when I looked at that face, I said to myself--now that's a writer!

    I felt the same way, Jim, when I first saw him on the back cover of Dandelion Wine (my first Bradbury novel) back in the '70s. BTW, I have all the ones you mentioned, except S is for Space (though I read it years ago).

    Those titles and that cover bring back a lot of fond memories.

    Guess you mean Erich Maria Remarque, the guy who wrote “All Quiet on the Western Front”?

    If so...certainly agree that is a wonderful book.

    Holy Vote: The Politics of Faith in America by Ray Suarez. 2006
    It's interesting to read political books from the previous decade. I look for insights into the situation as it was then and note where the author had it right and wrong regarding what may come to pass. I think it's helpful in understanding our current situation, spotting future trends, and anticipating the direction social issues are likely to take.

    The Fall of Hyperion, Dan Simmons. The Capital, Karl Marx and Needful Things by Stephen Kings.

    2 classics and a pretty decent one. The fall of Hyperion didn't really manage to amaze me the way Hyperion did but that's very good stuff. Not more to add about the capital, fantastic read, just as relevant today as it was the day it was first printed, whatever which economy church you are praying to. And, well, maybe not the best book ever written by king, Pet Sematary or It in my opinion, but Needful Thing is a darn decent read anyway.
