"Frost and Fire" was a memorable Bradbury story for me. I first read it in a 1966 paperback edition of R is for Rocket that was on the shelves at Nevin Platt Junior High School in Boulder, CO, where I also discovered Edgar Rice Burroughs (and John Norman's Gor titles, which were very popular while they lasted).
