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.
