Futuria Fantasia, the science-fiction fanzine Ray Bradbury published as a teenager. Released shortly after Bradbury graduated from high school in 1939, the first issue included Bradbury’s short stories “Don’t Get Technatal” (under pseudonym Ron Reynolds) and the poem “Thought and Space.” Bradbury published four issues between 1939 and 1940.
