    1. This a well-crafted collection of short stories that had been written early in the career of this well-known author. The horror in many of the stories is gradually unfolded with the deteriorating sanity of the protagonist, or with the protagonist's growing awareness that something is not quite right. Deteriorating sanity features in the eponymous story of the collection when a mother fears her newborn wants to kill her; a tourist develops an obssessive desire to leave a Mexican village after see [...]


    2. So spooky. It makes me more anxious to have a child."Strange, red little creatures with brains that work in a bloody darkness we can't even guess at. Elemental little brains, as warm with racial memory, hatred, and raw cruelty, with no more thought than self-preservation. And self-preservation in this case consisted of eliminating a mother who realized what a horror she had birthed. I ask you, doctor, what is there in the world more selfish than a baby? Nothing!"


    3. A collection of mild horror, delivered in a way that only Bradbury could achieve. There's nothing really shocking in most of these tales, but a mild air of unease permeates the golden small town scenes. Bradbury's fiction can come across as a literary wistful Norman Rockwell America, with the saccharine level turned down a few notches and the smell of the evening permeating the streets. You're not going to find the purple chthonic prose of Lovecraft in these works, nor the blood red of Stephen K [...]


    4. 7/10A great collection of early horror/sci-fi. As Bradbury was such a trailblazer in the genre/s reading these stories in 2017 the plot twists can feel a little obvious but that's probably because of the writers who stood on his shoulders and furthered the craft in more recent years.


    5. Ray Bradbury is a master in creating tension. I felt uncomfortable reading some of these stories, which is exactly what I should've felt in the moment. Also I like reading about evil kids because kids are evil, okay?


    6. There's not much better than a collection of short stories that have each been considered, crafted and delivered as well-rounded wholes. This is the first I've ever read of Ray Bradbury, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. There are some that are better than others, as in any short story compendium. But the literary clarity of the writing, and the appeals to the dark primal shivers of our collective spines, ring true throughout all. I'll definitely be reading more.


    7. After reading the Martial Chronicles and wanting more Bradbury, I heard that The Small Assassin was a good book to pick up, next. That seemed like pretty good advice.This book is a collection of short stories, all with a twist. It looks like the collection was intended to fall into the sci-fi/horror genre. The books weren't all that scary, but I liked the twist that each of them had at the end.Sadly, many of the stories were predictable. But the reason to read Bradbury isn't because of the myste [...]


    8. Bradbury has a marvelous way of putting things, and for the last few years he has been counted among my favourite authors for just that reason. The worlds he creates are always so vibrant, full of life. Even the ones found here, though they are primarily about death and decay, and the strange thing is that it is never too much, despite the amount of detail.But it is a trick.For as long as I've known him, Bradbury has always possessed the uncanny ability to take those worlds and stitch them seeml [...]


    9. The first story in this collection is the title story and it is really creepy! A mother nearly die in childbirth and develops the delusion that her new-born baby is trying to murder her - but is it a delusion?The other stories are a mixture of psychological horror, chillers and "tales of the unexpected". Bradbury successfully conjures up images of stifling small-town America and fever-dreams that are sometimes reminiscent of Edgar Allan Poe. There is also in many of the stories a rye and macbare [...]


    10. This bookis book influenced my early writing so much, both by teaching me that fantasy - or horror - didn't have to be done a certain way and that there were authors out there who could make a sentence sing like a bird.Rereading recently, I found sentences I'd magpied and cached, slightly mangled, into my own teenage scribblings as and when I felt there was no better way in existence to put what he had expressed. I don't quite know the little volume by heart, but if I mention that I last read it [...]


    11. 1) THE SMALL ASSASSIN: omg. I will never have children. Ever. So creepy!Otherwise the rest so far (I'm at "The Lake") was kinda predictable mh I shall read on.Now, more than one year later, I've managed to finish it. The thing is's not really my genre and I don't like short stories (for no apparent reason. There is only one of Neil Gaiman's short stories that I like and I love his writing to death).What I liked about it is, how ordinary people and events are turned into creepy occurrences. The s [...]


    12. The Small Assassin is an excellent collection of 13 horror stories. I didn't find them too gory at all, but I was very disturbed by some of them. Ray Bradbury is an excellent writer and really has the ability to put you in the situation, almost as though you're watching a movie. His descriptive writing is really something to behold.[return][return]There are a complete variety of stories here, and they generally keep you guessing right till the end. One story was written in the 2nd-person, which [...]


    13. This is a collection of short horror-themed stories and despite the fact that I'm not normally a horror person, I really rather enjoyed it. Bradbury's horror isn't that of blood and guts, it's the horror of the mundane with a twist, the familiar suddenly made horribly strange. From a mother whose fear of her baby may be well-founded or may be post-natal depression to the man who believes he's dead, but falls in love.Written with Bradbury's trademark flair and thoughtfulness this isn't a book tha [...]


    14. A fine collection of short stories. More eerie and horror-tinted. Fable-like and fantastic. Bradbury's ability to take our world and twist it into something uncanny, where we've slipped with our characters into some liminal fissure is delightful. You can almost see the smile on Bradbury's face as we travel from one oddity to the next, adulthood and youth collapsing into each other. It's frightening. It's delightful.


    15. Amazing yet scary. There's no contradiction.Ray Bradbury's writing, like always, makes you empathize with the characters. Unless you are not ready to be open-minded about certain things even in fiction, the story will grasp you tightly and won't let you go long after you've read it. Probably not a good choice if you are really impressible and may get anxiety (it *is* creepy, no doubt) - it's so realistic and full of small significant details that it makes the story frightening.


    16. 13 captivating and disturbing short stories. The Small Assassin, The Next in Line, The Lake, The Crowd, Jack-in-the-Box, The Man Upstairs, The Cistern, The Tombstone, The Smiling People, The Handler, Let's Play Poison, The Night, The Dead Man. I particularly enjoyed the Crowd, people who always turn up after an accident and chose to terminate a life sometimes.


    17. I wish I would have read Ray Bradbury instead of every Goosebumps book I could get my hands on. A few of the stories in this collection fell flat, but, then, a few others made up for it. I especially liked the evil children stories, which was why I read this collection in the first place.


    18. I can't rate it because every story in this book was in another of his collections. I'm getting confused - trying to read all of his books but there is so much overlap. I should have done my research first, I guess. Still, some of my favorites are in this collection.




    19. I had no idea how weird Bradbury was. These stories were more interesting (also, much nastier) than The Martian Chronicles.


    20. I'm only referring to the title story; I haven't read the collection. The title story is terrifying and horrifying, in ways modern writers can't match.
