“Here There be Tygers” by Ray BradburyFebruary 15, 2012
The Book: “Here There be Tygers” by Ray Bradbury. The story was first published in the anthology New Tales of Space and Time in 1951. The edition read is in R is for Rocket, published by Bantam Books in 1978.
The Setting: A planet far far away.
The Story: Prospecting space men find a planet which provides them with all their wants and desires, unless it’s threatened…
The Science: Sentient planets? Or at least reactionary eco-systems? Eh, why not?
The Reaction: Like so much of Bradbury, it’s vivid and fun to read. And, in this case, classic. So many others have ripped this idea off – paradise with a bite.
The Cover:Still not impressed.
