What to expect
From one of the greatest living literary imaginations and the celebrated author of FAHRENHEIT 451 comes an all-new collection of effortlessly beautiful tales
Recently described in The Times as 'the uncrowned poet laureate of science fiction' Ray Bradbury has won numerous awards including a Pulitzer Prize special citation in 2007 and an Emmy®.
In this new collection of flights of the imagination follow a space shuttle crew as they venture sixty million miles from home, discover what happens when a writer 'with the future's eye' believes his friend to be writing stories aboard a UFO, and listen in on a couple talking themselves backward through time to the moment when they first held hands.
This entertaining and gripping collection is a treasure trove of Bradbury gems – eerie and strange, nostalgic and bittersweet, searching and speculative – to delight readers of all ages.
