Start stockpiling canned food and ammo, gentle readers. The Japan Times reports that 151 flu patients have started exhibiting “abnormal behavior…including acting violently or uttering gibberish.” We knew it would happen one day. I had hoped it wouldn’t be this soon, but we must be ready nonetheless.

Remember, aim for the head and they’ll stay dead.

Ray Bradbury is one of the best science fiction authors ever. That goes pretty much without saying. I’m ashamed to say I haven’t read much of his work, but I’ve loved everything by him that I have read and I am excited to delve into The Illustrated Man over my long Christmas break. For now, I’ll have to content myself with “A Sound of Thunder,” his short story about the dangers of time travel, which you can read online for free. This story is easily my favorite short story ever. Time travel is among my favorite subjects to ponder and write about, and I am a big fan of Chaos Theory. Bradbury takes both, adds dinosaurs, and gives us a wonderful story that never gets old, no matter how many times I read it. Enjoy.
