New BRADBURY 100 Episode - Chronological Bradbury: 1941

Time for another new episode of my Bradbury 100 podcast - and it's another in my occasional series, "Chronological Bradbury".

It's 1941, and the year that Ray Bradbury makes the breakthrough as a professional writer!

In this year, Bradbury had six stories published: three amateur pieces published in fanzines; two semipro pieces (published in a fairly prestigious magazine, but he got paid with free copies of the magazine); and at year's end, his first professional sale, to the pulp science fiction magazine Super Science Stories.

In the podcast episode, I go through each story in turn, giving a brief summary and a review. If you want to read the stories for yourself, you can find some of them online. Some of them are only available in books, though. And one of them is, alas, not available anywhere that I can find.

Here's a list of the stories covered, with direct links where there are online copies:

 Stories which can't be found online are usually found in The Collected Stories of Ray Bradbury: A Critical Edition, Vol. 1, or in The Earliest Bradbury

Here's the episode. Please let me know what you think of these stories!
