Number 1611: Bradbury and Sutton, “The Exiles”
“The Exiles” in its original prose form has been oft-reprinted. Using authors like Shakespeare, Edgar Allan Poe and Charles Dickens as writers whose works have been banned in some future society seems improbable, but Bradbury liked to use startling ideas. Having long-dead authors holing up on Mars as their works are discarded on Earth is a concept I don’t think could come from any but Bradbury.
Tom Sutton did an excellent job in visualizing the Bradbury style. Both of these talented men are now sadly deceased.
