The Wine of Death
- save vs poison or die.
- a character who dies in this manner can not be brought back from the clutches of death.
- the remains of the dead are immune to animation & ‘speak with dead’ type spells.
- however, the Wine of Death often produces Vengeful Spirits under the control of Petty & Infernal gods.

This time travel story (published for the first time in 1952) is the most re-published sci-fi story up to the present time (wikipedia). This is also the very first Bradbury’s story I read (in a short story collection in French). I must have been around 12 years old, and I didn’t understand the ending the first time. But I read it again later. Since then, I read all the Bradbury’s books I found in the public library.
