For more than fifty years Ray Bradbury has regaled us with wonders, enabled us to view from fresh perspectives the world we inhabit, and see others we never dreamed existed.

Here are eighteen brand-new stories and seven previously published but never before collected stories -- proof positive that Bradbury's magic is as potent as ever.

Sip the sweet innocence of youth, the wisdom -- and folly -- of age. Taste the warm mysteries of summer and bitterness of betrayed loves and abandoned places. These stories will set your mind spinning and carry you to remarkable locales: a house where lime has no boundaries; a movie theater where deconstructed schlock is drunkenly assembled into art; a wheat field that hides a strangely welcome enemy. These are but a few of the ingredients that have gone into Bradbury's savory cocktail. And every satisfying swallow brings new surprises and revelations.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The pure joy of earthly existence is something Bradbury has never forgotten.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “A must…Bradbury returns in top form…He paints vivid word pictures.”

    Library Journal

  • “Bradbury is justly considered a master of the short story.”

    Booklist

  • “Bradbury's authorial range is on display in this book. The collection alternates between science fiction and literate studies of the human condition, with the requisite twists and turns inherent in all of Bradbury's work. Scott handles the material well, even without significantly altering his voice. Female characters are a bit softer, and older people are scratchier, but Scott keeps us listening. He pauses at just the right time for maximum effect and is at his best when relating conversations.”

  • “Startling ideas…Funny, edgy, ironic…vintage Bradbury.”

    " I'm a big Bradbury fan, but a lot of these stories stop before they start and lack that Bradbury magic. Still, it's Bradbury, so there's always something to like. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christian Dumais | 1/15/2014

    " What happened to you, Ray Bradbury? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Beth | 1/14/2014

    " I was wandering around the shelves at the library and came across this book. I thought it might be fun to re-visit one of my favorite authors when I was 12. Mistake. Either he has changed, or I have. I only read a few of the stories and took the book back. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lyndi Alexander | 12/24/2013

    " This isn't the Bradbury I loved as a child, SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES, and so on, but the stories still kept me following along with great interest. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christi | 10/2/2013

    " I'd give some of the stories in this collection 5+ stars, and some one star. There were a few that really made it worth the read, and a few I've already forgotten. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 8/18/2013

    " Reconnected with Ray Bradbury with this book of short stories. Most of it listened to on family car trips. His ideas were prescient. He is able to capture the magic childhood and the sadness of realizing its fading away into memories. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ana | 3/22/2013

    " Classic Bradbury -some happy, some make you go "hmm," all of them fun. I took it to Mexico and it was perfect to read just a story or two by the pool in between margaritas. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jason | 12/28/2012

    " It's very strange to read a collection of stories from Ray Bradbury in which almost none even resemble science fiction. It doesn't mean they aren't good stories, but it's not at all what I expected. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deanna | 12/18/2012

    " I LOVE Bradbury!! Why I don't own more of his works is a mystery to me... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Chad Gibbons | 10/7/2012

    " Bradbury has unfortunately lost his touch. Read his earlier stories and you'll be blown away. Read this and you'll be disappointed. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kate | 7/1/2012

    " Got 1/4 of the way through it, and I was bored. Back to the library with you! "

    " An eclectic collection of Ray Bradbury's stories. A good, light, entertaining read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shawn | 6/23/2011

    " This was an unexpected pleasure. Most of these tales have nothing to do with sci-fi/fantasy. Those that do have tenuous connections at best. These are stories of an old man, who's seen & lived much. He's looking back at all of it, for good or ill, but we benefit from it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jamie | 6/7/2011
