The Great Wednesday Compare #16- Ray Bradbury VERSUS Isaac Asimov

The winner of last week's Great Wednesday Compare (J. D. Salinger Vs. Ray Bradbury), with a final score of 12-2, was Ray Bradbury.

Some pretty enthusiastic love for Bradbury last week. Looks like I need to read Dandelion Wine. Up to now I've only read Fahrenheit 451, but you've all convinced me to read more.

This week's compare is perhaps a little obvious- akin to the whole Captain Kirk versus Captain Picard "debates". Nonetheless, I'm going to go down the predictable path.

Remember, vote simply by adding your comment below, base it on whatever merit you choose, voting does not end until Tuesday at 11:59 p.m. (October 2nd), and please spread the word!

Who's better?

It's still Bradbury for me. Dandelion Wine really impacted me when I was in high school. It is one of the books that helped to shape my desire to study literature and write novels. The latter of which I have not accomplished . . . yet.

I've not read any Asimov, so I'll go with Bradbury by default. Although he is certainly deserving of the vote regardless.

Can't believe I forgot to vote when I was here earlier. *slaps forehead*

Asimov. Because he was the honorary president of the American Humanist Society before he died.

I guess Bradbury, though I don't have a strong preference either way.

I'll go with Bradbury again this week since I've read more of him than of Asimov.

I haven't read a lot of Asimov so I guess I'm a default vote for Bradbury as well.

This is difficult, but I've got to go Asimov this week. I really enjoyed his autobiography, which I borrowed from my first husband.

This one is really tough. I think I'll have to go with Bradbury, though, as I'm under his spell this year.
