emotions that bring strength and mythic resonance to our frail species Ray Bradbury characters may find themselves anywhere and anywhen A horrified mother may give birth to a strange blue pyramid A man may take Abraham Lincoln out of the grave and meet another who puts him back An amazing Electrical Grandmother may come to live with a grieving family An old parrot may have learned over long evenings to imitate the voice of Ernest Hemingway and became the last link to the great man A priest on Mars may confront his fondest dream to meet the Messiah Each of these magnificent creations has something to tell us about our humanity and all of their fates await you in this new trade edition of twenty eight classic Bradbury stories and one luscious poem Travel on an unpredictable and unforgettable literary journey safe in the hands of one the century s great men of imagination, A fast moving eerie tale set on Halloween night Eight costumed boys running to meet their friend Pipkin at the haunted house outside town encounter instead the huge and cadaverous Mr Moundshroud As Pipkin scrambles to join them he is swept away by a dark Something and Moundshroud leads the boys on the tail of a kite through time and space to search the past for their friend and the meaning of Halloween After witnessing a funeral procession in ancient Egypt cavemen discovering fire Druid rites the persecution of witches in the Dark Ages and the gargoyles of Notre Dame they catch up with the elusive Pipkin in the catacombs of Mexico where each boy gives one year from the end of his life to save Pipkin s Enhanced by appropriately haunting black and white drawings Booklist, That i The Illustrated Man i has remained in print since being published in is fair testimony to the universal appeal of Ray Bradbury s work Only his second collection the first was i Dark Carnival i later reworked into i The October Country i it is a marvelous if mostly dark quilt of science fiction fantasy and horror In an ingenious framework to open and close the book Bradbury presents himself as a nameless narrator who meets the Illustrated Man a wanderer whose entire body is a living canvas of exotic tattoos What s even more remarkable and increasingly disturbing is that the illustrations are themselves magically alive and each proceeds to unfold its own story such as The Veldt wherein rowdy children take a game of virtual reality way over the edge Or Kaleidoscope a heartbreaking portrait of stranded astronauts about to reenter our atmosphere without the benefit of a spaceship Or Zero Hour in which invading aliens have discovered a most logical ally our own children Even though most were written in the s and s these classic stories will be just as chillingly effective years from now i Stanley
