Did I just read a story about a serial killer? Or what? Colour me baffled...

These Things Happen: Bradbury seems to have idolised certain authority figures as a child, particularly librarians and teachers.

Summer Morning, Summer Night - Ray Bradbury

OK, so this house is on fire! No - it's this woman that's on fire! No - she's just metaphorically on fire! Between Aspie literal-mindedness and Bradbury's penchant for the fantastical I often end up confused about what's metaphor and what's literal in his stories. A woman eating breakfast whilst on fire seems entirely plausible in a Bradbury story.
