There Will Come Soft Rains

from by Benjamin R. Fuhrman



This piece is, of course, based on Ray Bradbury’s story of the same name. After Bradbury’s death in June 2012, I decided to re-read "The Martian Chronicles," a collection of his short stories that chronicle the colonization of Mars and the subsequent destruction of Earth. This particular story, the penultimate in Bradbury’s book, focuses on the tasks an automated house continues to perform after its inhabitants are destroyed in a nuclear war. Nature and time progress unabated and the story ends with the house’s own destruction.
