Great Regulars: It was also to [Ray] Bradbury's credit

that he tweaked and prodded this succinct, abbreviated mode of writing more intensely than anyone since Poe, stretching its capacity and illustrating its potential. His prescience in focusing on this mode fits him for our abbreviated contemporary attention spans.

With seemingly boundless energy, he also of course inhabited longer forms, as well as plays and poems.
