One of the basic Bradbury collections. Bradbury is often thought of as a science fiction writer, but that is an inadequate description. He was just a writer, who wrote science fiction, horror, fantasy, romance, mystery, realism, and blends of all, usually with a twist at the end.
*A Medicine for Melancholy* includes a number of favorites which have been anthologized a lot in the past, maybe even in your high school literature anthology. “All Summer in a Day” is about a community on Venus which gets rain constantly for seven years in a row until they get one four-hour period of sun. In “The Wonderful Ice Cream Suit”, several men get together to purchase a beautiful white suit that each will take a turn wearing. “The Day it Rained Forever” is about three old men refusing to leave a beat-up hotel in a desert town and the surprise visitor who wakes them up. “Dark They Were and Golden-Eyed” and “The Million Year Picnic” are stories also included in *The Martian Chronicles*. “The Town Where No One Got Off” is a chilling psychological suspense story. “Icarus Montgolfier Wright” is an inspirational story about rockets that influenced a number of astronauts.
