For as long as That’s Classic! has been around, I’ve tried to avoid choosing stories for the Story of the Month that match the current season or holiday. However, there is something inescapably magical and enticing about autumn, especially right around Halloween. No writer has known or captured that magic better than the prolific storyteller Ray Bradbury, a man who has devoted much of his writing career to the fantasy and wonder of this special time of year. As my tribute both to the autumn season and the writer who loved it best, I have selected Ray Bradbury’s “Homecoming” as the Story of the Month for October 2010.
