"That is the name of a very famous Bradbury collection of stories so I'd expect Bradbury to have some trademark on the title unless Burroughs used it first, in which case Burroughs would have had a trademark. I know titles are pretty slippery."

Book titles cannot be copyrighted (or trademarked). There are plenty of different books with duplicate titles. For instance yesterday's Washington Post's Bestsellers list contained: Cross, Double Cross, Book of he Dead, The Chase, Next, . . . Not nearly the first time any of those titles has been used.
