***************** That's cool that you know his son. Is he a big fan of his dad's writing?

We dragged the Christmas ornaments boxes into the house a few days ago and they got stacked up against the bookshelf. After putting up the tree and setting out the decorations, the boxes went back out to the garage and after a minute or two of searching I found THE PLAGUE OF PYTHONS. It's by Pohl.

Somewhere I saw Ray Bradbury's short story "Pillar of Fire" listed as probably the best Gothic SF story of the 20th century. Some others along that line were listed, too. I was at Barnes and Nobles bookstore yesterday and found several Bradbury collections but couldn't remember the name of the "Pillar of Fire" story that I wanted to read.
