Bradbury's outdated ladies in house and their unusual consequence are similar to his extra recognized tale KALEIDOSCOPE (published within the ILLUSTRATED guy) and its end indicates strange if understated energy. Bradbury's THE FIREMAN (the short-form model of FAHRENHEIT 451 which was once doubled in size for its e-book e-book in 1953) seemed within the February 1951 factor of GALAXY and additional solidified GALAXY's popularity, as of extraordinary originality and ambition. Gold's dedication to the hugely bold THE FIREMAN was once, then, brave for its time and gave exposure to the editor's insistence that GALAXY was once a completely new type of technology fiction journal, one that used to be way more orientated towards variety and debatable social extrapolation than the opposite markets ever have been. even if THE FIREMAN and THE MARTIAN CHRONICLES were released prior to major realization, Bradbury in 1951 used to be on no account a author of considerable attractiveness and his paintings was once looked via so much technology fiction editors and readers as marginal to the style.
