The Arsène Lupin Podcast is coming along. If you haven’t heard, I’ll be releasing the first collection of Lupin stories as its own show. Wednesdays are about to get even better.
This week we’re continuing our little foray into the world of classic science fiction.
The New York Times dubbed Ray Bradbury, “The writer most responsible for bringing modern science fiction into the literary mainstream”. While he wrote chiefly in the realm of speculative fiction, he also worked in other genres, including horror, mystery, and coming of age fiction.
His best-known works include the novel Fahrenheit 451, his collections of short stories, The Martian Chronicles and The Illustrated Man, and the speculative horror novel Something Wicked This Way Comes.
Today’s story was first published in the pulp magazine, Thrilling Wonder Stories, in October 1948.
And now, The Square Pegs, by Ray Bradbury.
