R IS FOR ROCKET

KIRKUS REVIEW

A mansized capsule of the best of Bradbury- gleaned from magazines and books- and dedicated to "starry" eyed young men with time to dream of crossing the line between truth and fiction. Under Ray Bradbury's expert leadership, the effort is minimal even for entrenched earthlings. R Is For Rocket tells the story of one lad who after a boyhood of gazing beyond the fence enclosing the Space Administration, is finally admitted through the gate as a member of the Astronaut Board. The heart of a space ship in and out of danger comes alive in the adventures of the Copa do Oro. A time safari to any year in the past sounds exciting except when the trip back is to a new reality. The Long Rain, The Time Machine, Frost and Fire are a few more of these exotic stories which act as a beacon light in the field of science fiction.
