Dandelion Wine is the first of many semi-autobiographical works produced by Bradbury throughout his career, and structured much like some of his other longer works: largely composed of previously published short stories woven together and linked by transitional vignettes. In this novel, Bradbury revisits his Waukegan childhood through the eyes and adventures of 12-year-old Douglas Spaulding (Bradbury's middle name is Douglas) over the course of one glorious summer in Green Town, Illinois.

As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
