Note: Before I started reviewing on my own blog, I reviewed books on Examiner.com. Now that it is ceasing to publish, I am moving my reviews to this site.
Shortly before Ray Bradbury’s death, Mort Castle and Sam Weller began putting together a compilation of short stories in honor of the master author. That book Shadow Show: All-New Stories in Celebration of Ray Bradbury. The book includes an impressive array of authors, including Neil Gaiman, Margaret Atwood, Audrey Niffenegger, Dave Eggers and Harlan Ellison (in what he says will likely be his last short story publication). Each author offers a Bradbury-esque short story and then appends a short afterward on how Bradbury influenced the author’s writing.
