Fahrenheit 451

by Ray Bradbury

451 degrees Fahrenheit is the temperature at which paper catches fire. In this dysfunctional future, the term "fireman" has taken on a new meaning. He doesn't put out fires - he starts them! Whenever an illegal cache of books is discovered, the Fire Department is called upon, to reduce those evil printed thingies to ashes. 39 printings in 19 years, including special editions! And that only gets us up to 1972, when this fantastic fire-goddess cover was printed.
