Bradbury's previous ladies in area and their unusual end result are such as his extra recognized tale KALEIDOSCOPE (published within the ILLUSTRATED guy) and its end indicates strange if understated energy. Bradbury's THE FIREMAN (the short-form model of FAHRENHEIT 451 which was once doubled in size for its e-book e-book in 1953) seemed within the February 1951 factor of GALAXY and additional solidified GALAXY's recognition, as of unheard of originality and ambition. Gold's dedication to the hugely formidable THE FIREMAN used to be, then, brave for its time and gave exposure to the editor's insistence that GALAXY was once a wholly new form of technological know-how fiction journal, one that was once way more orientated towards variety and debatable social extrapolation than the opposite markets ever were. even if THE FIREMAN and THE MARTIAN CHRONICLES were released prior to major awareness, Bradbury in 1951 was once under no circumstances a author of considerable recognition and his paintings used to be seemed by way of such a lot technology fiction editors and readers as marginal to the style.
