Ray Bradbury, author of The Martian Chronicles and Fahrenheit 451, contributed to science fiction a highly distinctive voice the now departed Leonard Nimoy, Star Trek's Mr. Spock, also contributed to science fiction a highly distinctive voice.

The irony of the story There Will Come Soft Rains is strong. The poem within the story describes how happy nature will be when man has destroyed himself, but the truth is that nature has been decimated by the war. The dog that comes in to die is lean and covered with sores. The rest of the city is rubble and ashes. These stories come from Bradburys vaunted collections The Martian Chronicles and The Illustrated Man. In the mid-1970s, these two sci-fi icons got together, and the result was a pair of records, each with two stories from each book-one on each side of the album-that combine these two distinct and beloved voices from the genre. First up is the short story There Will Come Soft Rains. Usher II, also from The Martian Chronicles, is up next, and also revolves around a house. This time its a haunted house built on Mars, and based on creepy stories like those of Edgar Allen Poe and Alice in Wonderland. Ray Bradbury Author, Leonard Nimoy Author Format: Vinyl.

Two thirty-five. And one voice, with sublime disregard for the situation, read poetry aloud in the fiery study, until all the film spools burned, until all the wires withered and the circuits cracked. The fire burst the house and let it slam flat down, puffing out skirts of spark and smoke. In the kitchen, an instant before the rain of fire and timber, the stove could be seen making breakfasts at a psychopathic rate, ten dozen eggs, six loaves of toast, twenty dozen bacon strips, which, eaten by fire, started the stove working again, hysterically hissing
