of, relating to, or characteristic of the writing of Ray Bradbury, esp. in focusing on psychological concerns (often based on the presumed simplicity of personal interactions) rather than technological developments
Earthbound was Bradburyish. No plot, but who cared? Excellent yarn.
‘The Body’ is very Bradburyish—a story of a man put into a dog’s body.
This book is Bradbury at his most Bradburyish—and his best. Personally, I found it tremendous.
The vital question of scale arises too in the Bryce Walton story. This pleasant Bradburyish piece contains the quote which heads this section; ‘A human being is the smallest thing of all, out here,’ thinks one spaceman, drifting in space. But an answer is given: ‘The human being was bigger than the Universe itself.’
They exhibit a wide-ranging talent, comfortable and proficient with such diverse tales as the Bradburyish ‘The Ground Under Man’ or the Barrington-Bayley-like ‘Another Brush With The Fuzz’ or the La Fontaine-style fable ‘Flies’.
I think it’s going to be a very Bradburyish short story. It’s going to have that flavor, at least in my head.
