“Zero Hour,” Ray Bradbury, 1947

“Zero Hour,” Ray Bradbury, 1947 – A story of children who “turn traitor” due to the influence of aliens.

Comments: Another story involving unsocialized, “alien” children.  See also the Kuttners’ “When the Bough Breaks.”  Philip K. Dick’s “The Father-Thing” reverses the situation.

Author:  Wikipedia: “Ray Douglas Bradbury (born August 22, 1920) is an American fantasy, horror, science fiction, and mystery writer. Best known for his dystopian novel Fahrenheit 451 (1953) and for the science fiction stories gathered together as The Martian Chronicles (1950) and The Illustrated Man (1951), Bradbury is one of the most celebrated among 20th and 21st century American writers of speculative fiction. Many of Bradbury’s works have been adapted into television shows or films.”
