Armageddon – Through wars and conquests and societal “reorganizations”, Ray Bradbury writes about the “endings” of things in these five science fiction stories. From the most personal and singular, to the most public and cosmic all things must come to an end.
These ten early stories by Ray Bradbury were written between 1942 and 1944, during the height of World War II. Mostly from Weird Tales, they show Bradbury’s early interests in questions of coming of age, the power of childhood innocence, and death.
A thief makes the biggest score of all time and then dies trying to escape. His dying mind is transferred into the body of a warrior who is being used by a sorceress to destroy her enemies.
