was a riot of rockets and fountains and people in such intricate detail and color that you could hear the voices murmuring small and muted from the crowds that inhabited his body When his flesh twitched the tiny mouths flickered the tiny green and gold eyes winked the tiny pink hands gestured There were yellow meadows and blue rivers and mountains and stars and suns and planets spread in a Milky Way across his chest The people themselves were in twenty or odd groups upon his arms shoulders back sides and wrists as well as on the flat of his stomach You found them in forests of hair lurking among a constellation of freckles or peering from armpit caverns diamond eyes aglitter Each seemed intent upon his own activity each was a separate gallery portrait How did he do it Ray Bradbury had an uncanny ability to describe things so vividly that my mind automatically generates clear hi def image even as I read the words As if Bradbury conjured images with his words rather than just writing themSince his passing a few months ago I have been on a little Bradbury binge I started with started with Something Wicked This Way Comes then The October Country The Martian Chronicles Fahrenheit 451 and now The Illustrated Man As with a lot of his works The Illustrated Man is science fantasy than science fiction the science in his stories are often very suspect but Bradbury never wanted to write hard sf he left that sort of thing to the likes of AsimovClarkeHeinlein who were masters of the form He wanted to write about humanity in his imagined scenarios The whys are always important than the hows for himMy favourite cover I always like the on the nose onesMars is Bradbury s go to planets for aliens and rockets the space vehicle of choice So this being an sf collection Mars and rockets are featured in most stories no FTL drives here probably because all the stories take place within our solar system mostly just Earth and Mars with one exception There are 18 stories here wrapped within a great frame story featuring the titular Illustrated Man he of the weird animated tattoos so beautifully described in the uoted paragraph above1 The Veldt Featuring one of Bradbury s favorite plot devices the auto house AI controlled houses When a virtual reality nursery insist on showing an African veldt with hungry lions I think an appropriate modern tagline for this story would be Shit Just Got Real A tale of bad parenting and over indulging kids I don t think Bradbury would have liked to live in an auto house2 Kaleidoscope After a rocket fall apart while in space the astronauts begin to float off in all directions Here death is shown to be a great leveler Also a rumination on the uality of death regret redemption and peace of mind as the end approaches3 The Other Foot This seems like a seuel to Way in the Middle of the Air from The Martian Chronicles Mars has been entirely colonized by black people for 20 years One day a rocket arrive with a crew of whites will all hell break lose I like the way the kids are all excited about seeing their first white people4 The Highway The world ends except in countryside where the rural protagonist s scope of the world is defined by his immediate pastoral settings A simple life ignorance bliss5 The Man Rumours of the Messiah on Mars not so much the Second Coming as the First such arrival you gotta have faith a faith a faith6 The Long Rain This is actually my favorite story in this collection it is set on Venus for a change where it pelts down with rain all the time very visceral especially as it was raining when I was reading it7 The Rocket Man Yes this song inspired Elton John s hit of the same name A sad story about an astronaut so addicted to space he forsakes his family8 The Fire Balloons Sentient and enlightened Martian balloons Short short stories shouldn t be described at length9 The Last Night of the World What it says on the tin but without any scene of explosions or death and destruction It s just like any other day really10 The Exiles The year is actually mentioned here it s 2120 and Man is about to arrive on Mars Unfortunately it is already occupied by the witches from Macbeth and other creatures from supernatural tales banned on Earth This story is similar in theme to Fahrenheit 45111 No Particular Night or Morning This story reminds me of the old philosophical uestion When a tree falls in a lonely forest and no animal is near by to hear it does it make a sound I suspect only self centered and insane people would believe things don t exist when they are not around12 The Fox and the Forest The single time travelling tale here a nice couple hounded by some kind of time police not on Mars incidentally13 The Visitor A telepathic man arrive on Mars he has the ability to conjure up illusions of places sight and smell Makes him all too popular among the sick sufferers of blood rust who have been cast off from Earth Reminds me of a story from The Martian Chronicles called The Martian14 The Concrete Mixer Martians invade earth and become corrupted by our numerous vices and follies The single humorous story in this book I think Particularly satirical of the American way of life15 Marionettes Inc Do Marionettes dream of electric sheep This is an early example of the sf trope of replacing people with robot or android copies Veteran sf readers will not be surprised by the ending but it is still a great little story about what makes us human and the way we treat each other16 The City The single scifi horror story here about a living AI city If we don t reap what we sow our descendants will do the reaping or may be we reap what our ancestors sow Surprisingly violent and graphic story May be this is my favorite story in this book Any way it s just great17 Zero Hour Reminds me of the M Night Shyamalan s movie Signs Also about the peril of bad parenting again I think More creepy kids18 The Rocket A sweet but not too saccharine story about a poor junkyard family The image of an inert silver rocket standing in the junkyard is particularly evocativeAfter that we are back with the eponymous Illustrated Man in nice and creepy closer And look how long I have gone on and onNot the strongest Bradbury collection I think but still a must read for fans of the late great author of sf stories and of decent reads in generalSexy Rod Steiger version

FREE DOWNLOAD ´ The Illustrated Man That The Illustrated Man has remained in print since being published in 1951 is fair testimony to the universal appeal of Ray Bradbury's work Only his second collection the first was Dark Carnival later reworked into The October Country it is a marvelous if mostly dark uilt of science fiction fantasy and horror In an ingenious framework to open and close the book Bradbury presents himself as a nameless narrator who meets the Illustrated Man a wanderer whose entire body is a living canvas of exotic tattoos What's even remarkable and increasingly disturbing is that the illustrations are themselves magically alive and each proceeds to unfold its own story such as The Veldt wherein rowdy children take a game of virtual reality way over the edge Or Kaleidoscope a. I read a review once that described Robert A Heinlein as a creepy old uncle who drinks too much at parties and who makes embarrassing comments but who everyone likes in spite of his outdated ways kind of a loveable rogue Ray Bradbury similar but by contrast is like the dotty old professor whom everyone cannot help but love and who overlook his eccentricities His stories are as warm and imaginative as a summer afternoon And all due respect to Fahrenheit 451 which is a fine novel but I submit that Bradbury s great contribution to literature arises from his short stories he is a master of the medium And just as Heinlein Asimov and Clarke are the Big Three and are the masters and founders of modern science fiction Bradbury is an atavist a throwback to Wells and Jules Verne and Edgar Rice Burroughs he is our last link to a simpler time before the age of information before everything was reuired to be explained in scientific detail Where Heinlein will go into great detail to explain the mathematical elements of a hyperspace warp drive and how it affects the space time continuum Bradbury would simply write and they got in the rocket and went to Mars Beautifully simple and imaginative And let s just get it out on the table what about Mars I think that to Bradbury Mars was not just the fourth planet Mars was a representative of another place Mars was the out there was Bradbury s Neverland his WonderlandThe Illustrated Man is a collection of short stories many that take up from the The Martian Chronicles with his fascination with Mars as an alternate reality loosely connected with a centerpiece of a tattooed carnival worker whose body art moves and shifts and tells stories Wonderfully imaginative uintessential Bradbury
