Now and Forever: Somewhere a Band Is Playing & Leviathan '99 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A journalist bearing terrible news leaps from a still-moving train into a small town of wonderful, impossible secrets . . .

The doomed crew of a starship follows their blind, mad captain on a quest into deepest space to joust with destiny, eternity, and God Himself . . .

Now and Forever is a bold new work from an incomparable artist whose stories have reshaped America's literary landscape. Two bewitching novellas—each distinctly different, yet uniquely Bradbury—demonstrate the breathtaking range of his undimmed talent and the irrepressible vitality of the mind, spirit, and heart of America's preeminent storyteller.

Synopsis:

Two never-before-published works of short fiction by one of America's finest writers are included in a single volume: "Somewhere a Band Is Playing" is classic Bradbury fantasy, and "Leviathan 99" is an homage to Herman Melville's "Moby Dick."
