science&fiction: Illustration for A Sound of Thunder, by Ray Bradbury.
This time travel story (published for the first time in 1952) is the most re-published sci-fi story up to the present time (wikipedia). This is also the very first Bradbury’s story I read (in a short story collection in French). I must have been around 12 years old, and I didn’t understand the ending the first time. But I read it again later. Since then, I read all the Bradbury’s books I found in the public library.
