‘The Illustrated Man’ discussion

In this collection of 18 short stories, Bradbury examines the strangeness, beauty, and horror that exist on Earth and throughout the universe. The stories are linked by the tattoos on a man’s body, allegedly created by a time-travelling woman. As the narrator looks at the tattoos, they become animated, telling tales of the future.
