One of my favorite childhood memories is watching the film "A Christmas Story"...I've more than likely mentioned it on this blog before...Well here is the book the film is based upon. I'm reading it at the moment. Select stories from this book were adapted for the films screenplay - also penned by Jean Shepherd. I'm really enjoying it...Shepherd is a super writer..full of wit, charm and childish wisdom..

I've been ridiculously busy of late - I have a lot of work at the moment so the 'ol blog has unfortunately been neglected this past month or two! Stay tuned...I'm hoping I'll be able to make more time to upload shortly...I have a backlog of stuff I'd love to share. Have a great day everyone!
"The Martian Chronicles is a 1950 science fiction short story collection by Ray Bradbury that chronicles the colonization of Mars by humans fleeing from a troubled and eventually atomically devastated Earth, and the conflict between aboriginal Martians and the new colonists. The book lies somewhere between a short story collection and an episodic novel, containing stories Bradbury originally published in the late 1940s in science fiction magazines. For publication, the stories were loosely woven together with a series of short, interstitial vignettes." Source: Wikipedia
