Short story challenge, the comeback

With the beginning of each year come new ideas and challenges to make this project just a bit more fun.

One of these challenges, which is an old one, is reading one short story per day from the an array of anthologies that have been sitting on my shelves far to long.

To restart the challenge I have selected three books, the first, and with just a few story left, is the classic collection by brilliant writer Ray Bradbury, The Illustrated Man, to follow this tough act, Dreams Underfoot, a collection of short stories that its said to be the best starting point to Charles de Lint’s enigmatic series of Newford, and to top it off , the return to the dark crevices of the classic graphic novel by James O’Barr, The Crow: Shattered Lives & Broken Dreams, a collection of poems and short stories from famous writers and musicians.

Today’s story is The City from Illustrated Man by Ray Bradbury, Can a City wait patiently for thousands of years to be inhabited?, let’s find out.

Off to read.
