#9 - the correct title is "There Will Come Soft Rains" - also sometimes found as "August 2026: There Will Come Soft Rains" (that is the chapter title as it appears in Bradbury's book The Martian Chronicles. Lots of great stories in this list, but most are 50+ years old. Does anyone have any more recent short stories that are middle school appropriate?
