Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For more than sixty years, the imagination of Ray Bradbury has opened doors into remarkable places, ushering us across unexplored territories of the heart and mind while leading us inexorably toward a profound understanding of ourselves and the universe we inhabit. In this landmark volume, America's preeminent storyteller offers us one hundred treasures from a lifetime of words and ideas. The stories within these pages were chosen by Bradbury himself, and span a career that blossomed in the pulp magazines of the early 1940s and continues to flourish in the new millennium. Here are representatives of the legendary author's finest works of short fiction, including many that have not been republished for decades, all forever fresh and vital, evocative and immensely entertaining.

Review:

"Famous for writing of rockets while refusing to drive a car, Bradbury embodies a contradiction: He's associated with his stories of the future, but his values are nostalgic, yearning for, and calling from, the past." Los Angeles Times

Review:

"[T]hough these shady-porch tales today may have a cheesecloth quality to their poetry, they remain his bubbling first masterpiece, with the present volume their bookend." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

Spanning six decades of his astonishing career, here is a retrospective collection of 100 magnificent stories that confirms this literary genius's status as a master of short fiction.

This is a collection of 100 of Ray Bradbury's best, most famous stories. There were a lot of familiar stories here, but I think probably a good 1/3 of the collection was new to me. This is an excellent read, particularly if you like a wide range of genres, as Bradbury proves himself to be a master of more than speculative fiction.
