I Made A List: July

There seem to be a lot of Ray Bradbury stories dealing with summer. Dandelion Wine of course (and its late sequel Farewell Summer), "The Day it Rained Forever", "The Burning Man", and many more.

Perhaps it's not surprising, then, that a lot of his short stories first saw the light of day in the month of July. Take a look:
