There Will Come Soft Rains - Ray Bradbury
Sixty years earlier, a precursor to Warren Ellis' _Lich House_. The terrors of the future are not those we have - the Cold War still looming large. But the depiction of the future is, whilst regimented and picket-fence-utopian... also charming. The childrens' bedroom, in particular, made me smile and want to visit; not nod knowingly at the cleverness. When we write stories about the future, it's important they're still stories.

A man who won't forget Ray Bradbury | Books |
"[Bradbury] told them about a child he had watched, teased by his friends for wanting to enter a toy shop because they said it was too young for him, and how much Ray had wanted to persuade the child to ignore his friends and play with the toys." That, forever.
