The story is reference several times in Bradbury’s story, as well as many works by Ambrose Bierce and H.P. Lovecraft. Today’s story originally released in the Summer issue of Planet Stories in 1948. Last week, William Lantry awoke from his coffin in a graveyard. He was dead, yet he could move and speak. The year was 2348 or so, and he’d been dead around 350 years. The new world had no graveyards, and all bodies were burned in a great Incinerator, which made a pillar of fire to the heavens. Along with the graveyards, fear, superstition, and macabre imagination were also sterilized in this new world. So Lantry came up with a plan – to destroy the Incinerators, and create an army of living dead “friends”. And now, Pillar of Fire, Part 2 of 2, by Ray Bradbury.

Bradbury was one of the best-known writers of our time. He was a master storyteller, a champion of creative freedom, and a space-age visionary. His most noteworthy works include The Martian Chronicles, Farenheit 451, and Something Wicked This Way Comes. In 2008, a digitized copy of The Martian Chronicles reached the Red Planet in 2008, aboard NASA’s Phoenix Mars Lander. Bradbury’s remarks on the subject were: “The thing that makes me happy is that I know that on Mars, two hundred years from now, my books are going to be read. They’ll be up on dead Mars with no atmosphere. And late at night, with a flashlight, some little boy is going to peek under the covers and read The Martian Chronicles on Mars.” And now, Rocket Summer, by Ray Bradbury Tap here to go to www.classictalesaudiobooks.com and become a financial supporter!

Episode 211 - Ray Bradbury

Stars on Suspense (Old Time Radio)

Ray Bradbury brought science fiction into the mainstream with stories like The Martian Chronicles, and his works were adapted for some of the best radio anthologies of the era. Stories from the author of Fahrenheit 451 and The Illustrated Man inspired episodes of Escape, X Minus One, and Suspense. We'll hear two of his terrifying tales from radio's outstanding theater of thrills: "Zero Hour" (originally aired on CBS on April 5, 1955) and "The Whole Town's Sleeping" (originally aired on CBS on June 14, 1955). Plus, we'll hear "The Veldt," a story about addictive technology years before smart phones, from Dimension X (originally aired on NBC on August 9, 1951).
