A Tattered Page has returned and for this round includes citations provided by Ray Bradbury's The Martian Chronicles. ImmateriA pays homage to the story about a very lonely house in the entry "There Will Come Soft Rains".
Soft Rains was inspired by the following citation: "Ten o'clock. The sun came out from behind the rain. The house stood alone in a city of rubble and ashes. This was the one house left standing. At night the ruined city gave off a radioactive glow which could be seen for miles.Ten-fifteen. The garden sprinklers whirled up in golden founts, filling the soft morning air with scatterings of brightness, The water pelted windowpanes, running down the charred west side where the house had been burned evenly free of its white paint.
The entire west face of the house was black, save for five places. Here the silhouette in paint of a man mowing a lawn. Here, as in a photograph, a woman bent to pick flowers. Still farther over, their images burned on wood in one titanic instant, a small boy, hands flung into the air; higher up, the image of a thrown ball, and opposite him a girl, hands raised to catch a ball which never came down. The five spots of paint-the man, the woman, the children, the ball-remained. The rest was a thin charcoaled layer"(August 2026: THERE WILL COME SOFT RAINS).
The outfit includes the jacket, hat, umbrella, boots, gasmask and shadow attachment.
