Re: Hallowe'en Reading and Viewing, 2008!

Bradbury was one of those giants, like Clarke, Asimov et al, who shed brilliant ideas like other people shed dandruff.

I remember reading about how Beast From 20,000 Fathoms was inspired, but I don't think I knew about the Gojira connection. I need to track down a Bradbury anthology with "Fog Horn" in it.

I started Four Octobers last night. I don't know about "Creature Feature," but it sure has the "nostalgia" factor. The first story is set in 1957 and involves kids of late Elementary School/Junior High School age. Slightly before my time, but close enough that it's very familiar. And nicely creepy so far.
