The stories, “A Sound of Thunder,” by Ray Bradbury, and “Nethergrave,” by Gloria Skurzynski, were both great stories that had illustrious examples of a science fiction. Both of the stories characters were using different types of science, and technology. There is the use of time travel where a person was able to travel from the future, and go back to pre- historic times. The other was a better example of a science fiction story focused on the use of technology in the story. “A Sound of Thunder,” has better examples of technology that relate to science fiction than in “Nethergrave.” The technologies in “A Sound of Thunder” include; the time travel machine with its abilities to travel back in time and the antigravity path the hunters walked
He has chosen to title his essay “Losing the War.” This however is not originally the title. The longer title is as follows; “World War II had faded into movies, anecdotes, and archives that nobody cares about anymore. Are we losing the war?” Albeit subtle subtle, this is perhaps one of the most powerful choices Sandlin made in his argument. He is suggesting that although the war is considered “won” in the history books, the trauma it caused —as the general nature of the war— is anything but victorious. He is also arguing that the American public is, actually, losing the war.
In short stories the author’s use of intentional time makes a dramatic impact to the story as a whole. Due to the fact being if “The Most Dangerous Game” and “A Rose for Emily” weren’t taken place back in the olden days and now because Emily and Zaroff would not have gotten away with the things they were essentially getting away with. First off “The Most Dangerous Game” was about General Zaroff making people play his “game” which isn’t your typical fun type of game it’s a twisted mind trick that he continuously gets people to fall for over and over. The story is based in the time frame of World War 1 almost a hundred years ago, so if the story would have taken place in the time period of the 20th century he would not have been so easily to
In Ray Bradbury’s story, time is a symbol of ignorance. A source states, “Although Ray Bradbury became arguably the best-known science-fiction writer in the United States, the majority of his work, which ranges from gothic horror to social criticism, centers on humanistic themes” (“Ray Bradbury”). The readers can assume Bradbury is going to write about science-fiction before they pick up one of his works because that is the genre of stories he writes. In the short story “Zero Hour”, Ray Bradbury sets the change with children playing a game, little does the audience know that it is not just a game. Bradbury writes, “ ‘The most exciting game ever!’ gasped Mink, pink-faced…Mrs.
When someone believes that it’s possible to time travel and get abducted by aliens, they clearly have a mental disorder. Kurt Vonnegut’s novel, Slaughterhouse-Five, though it is a fictitious novel, it contains serious and real content. It has its sadistic humor, but it is truly a war story where the outcomes are not good. The protagonist, Billy Pilgrim, is said to be unstuck in time and is abducted by aliens. Though, there is a lot against the reality of that.
Some have named Ray Bradbury “the uncrowned king of the science-fiction writers” because of his imagination and beautiful way of making Fahrenheit 451 come to life. The book Fahrenheit 451 is one of the first books to deal with a future society filled with people who have lost their thirst for knowledge and for whom literature is a thing of the past. The author mainly portrays this world from the point of view of Montag, a man who has discovered the power that knowledge contains and is coming to grips with the fact that it is outlawed. However, the reader also gets to see what life is like for one of the people content in living a life lacking in independent thought and imagination through his wife, Millie. Through the characterization of Mildred, and his use of figurative language in Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury warns that technology has the ability to hinder independent thoughts and ideas.
"Why those meddling rangers..I was so close..the power was mine..and I lost it" "Haha" a voice laughed. "Oh brother when will you learn. You can 't combine human technology and alien technology unless you reconfigure it........I guess you were absent that day" "You may be smarter than me Flurious..but I 'm a warrior and when I find the jewels to the corona aurora I will become the most power being in the universe..and YOU..WILL kneel before me" "In your dreams brother..only in your dreams" Flurious said and he saw Esmeral. "Ah Esmeral..Good to see you again." "Nice to see you too Flurious" She said dully as she was not happy that he was upsetting Moltor.
Logres, The Distopian Society Logres is known as the Land of Blessing, and it is thought to be one of the most peaceful places on earth.

Logres,was not a utopian society because of the many problems that occurred daily.
After endings the World War II, the Soviet Union and the US both were clearly going to be the two powerful countries for some time to come. The Cold War was a long duration of frustration between the democracies of the Western World and the communist countries of Eastern Europe. Although the two powerful countries never officially declared war on each other, they fought discursively in proxy wars, the arms race, and the space race. Historians are not confident about the date but they assume it was very near of 1947–1991.
Bradbury’s writing style was heavily influenced by important writers, all of whom increased his skill and fortitude. Bradbury’s writing is unique in a way unlike any other science fiction, one reason being that he does not consider his writing to be science fiction. His unique writing style gives Bradbury something to stand out starkly against other authors of this genre. Bradbury depicts a scary future in most of his stories, in an effort to prevent them from happening- something that requires a superior writing ability. Bradbury’s stories depicted futures taking place near right now, some as soon as 2026.
