Most of these stories are just that. Some of the tales thus come across as pointless toss offs that should have donvector locked in a drawer somewhere.

The Toynbee Convector has a lot of stories I’ve seen in other collections– in fact, despite never having read this before, I recognized most of the stories– but I’d still recommend giving it a read for the title story and a couple toybee greats personal favorite? Pretty good stories, almost entirely realistic fiction which I will admit is simply not my favorite Bradbury style.

Refresh and try again. This is the reason I said the title and cover are misleading.


El Convector Toynbee

Honestly one of his best works; think a darker realistic fiction The Veldt. So, approximately 22 percent of the stories here are decent vintage, good stuffs.

What bothers me is that nearly all the stories involve some love affair or other adult matter. I was surprised to discover it was mostly not science fiction, convectog rather a mish-mash of straight fiction, SF, horror, supernatural, and even humor.

Bradbury always defies genre classification and this collection is no different. When everything is repeated, and over, and familiar, it’s the first things rather than the last that count.


Views Read Edit View history. His work is quintessentially pure. The Love Affair has a lonely Martian willing to face certain doom for the sound of music and the hope of companionship. Such a thing that your hands move while not moving. There are certain themes and even, dare I say, formulas that he returns to time and again. Just holding hands can mean more, I believe it.

My only exposure to Bradbury up to this point was The Martian Chronicleswhich was probably the first sci-fi I ever read. A whole new volume of Bradbury stories to explore!
