Sad news of Ray Bradbury’s passing today. That said, he lived to the ripe old age of 91 and managed to elevate science fiction into the realm of “literature” through a staggeringly large and influential body of work (including Fahrenheit 451; possibly the best book we were forced to read in grade school). For those looking for a Bradbury fix outside of his own oeuvre Listen to the Echoes is a solid bet.

In it, Chicago author and Bradbury scholar Sam Weller presents interviews he conducted with the towering writer over the course of a decade, casting “a high-definition portrait of a creative genius and futurist who longs for yesterday.” Get a copy from Stop Smiling Books or Amazon
