Description

Ray Bradbury is a modern cultural treasure. His disarming simplicity of style underlies a towering body of work unmatched in metaphorical power by any other American storyteller. And here, presented in a new trade edition, are thirty-two of his most famous tales--prime examples of the poignant and mysterious poetry which Bradbury uniquely uncovers in the depths of the human soul, the otherwordly portraits of outré fascination which spring from the canvas of one of the century's great men of imagination. From a lonely coastal lighthouse to a sixty-million-year-old safary, from the pouring rain of Venus to the ominous silence of a murder scene, Ray Bradbury is our sure-handed guide not only to surprising and outrageous manifestations of the future, but also to the wonders of the present that we could never have imagined on our own.Ray Bradbury is a modern cultural treasure.

From Publishers Weekly

Dec 10, 2007 – A half century after its initial appearance, Bradbury s fourth published book remains vivid and memorable. The original table of contents is restored (under Joe Mugnaini s iconic original cover art), with Bradbury s familiar and characteristically wistful, dreamy fantasy, such as The April Witch, a haunting tale of teenage dream-traveler Cecy and her desperate desire for romance, mingling with brilliant science fiction like the title story and the widely reprinted A Sound of Thunder. A few pieces have not aged so well, such as The Big Black and White Game, a clumsy discussion of race that was bold for its time but does little for the modern reader, but they re well balanced by the inclusion of two charming short plays: The Fog Horn, an incomplete radio play that inspired the iconic if maladapted film The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms, and En la Noche, which succeeds on page or stage, like most Bradbury, as a story of human sensitivities.
