In honor of Ray Bradbury, we're devoting one of our summer reading in-depth segments to the science fiction genre.  Bradbury died June 5 at the age of 91.

Whether you're an avid sci-fi reader or you've never picked up a title, you'll find a title to add to your summer reading list.

Chris McKitterick, director of the Center for the Study of Science Fiction at the University of Kansas, will join The Daily Circuit Tuesday to share his suggestions. Gary Wolfe, professor of humanities at Roosevelt University, will also join the discussion.

Tell us the sci-fi novel or story that turned you into a devoted fan on The Daily Circuit blog.
