Bradbury wrote with panache across the fictional horizon--although he was best known as a science fiction author--and his prose frequently waxed poetic. For this reason, some readers found some of his works to be difficult going. But the rewards were well worth the effort.
I think the Music Man once said that The Martian Chronicles was one of the best short story collections ever written. It rivaled Isaac Asimov's Foundation trilogy in impact and popularity. It has been years since my minions read either to moi, but I remember enjoying them immensely.
You should check-out anything by Ray Bradbury at your favorite public library. You will discover ideas both sublime and spectacular.
