Publisher's Summary

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 32 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 outre fascination which spring from the canvas of one of the century's great men of imagination.

From a lonely coastal lighthouse to a 60-million-year-old safari, 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.

Golden delicious

What can I say? Ray is one of my favorite authors. These stories are wild, imaginative, touching, sad, and thought provoking. Again and again I’m amazed at Ray’s imagination and how easily he seems to create whole worlds and civilizations, it’s beautiful. Worth every minute and possibly also worth picking up a hard copy.

I love Ray Bradbury

I love Ray Bradbury. Why can’t Audible list a table of contents. Ray made many compilations and trying to find a single story among them is impossible With Audible. The tech of Audible should not be inferior to the public library. It would be nice if when I hit the chapters tab it actually listed the titles and not just chapter numbers. The book is great. The voice talent is superb. The value is fine. The app is frustrating. Had to do a google search and take a screenshot to find a list of stories.
