The truth is, reading the vast new Everyman s Library edition of "The Stories of Ray Bradbury, "culling through its perfectly round 100 selections (and 1,000-plus pages), stopping to wonder why it has taken 30 years for this classic collection to join the hardcover literary canon, a thought slips in repeatedly: Stephen King was thinking way too small. [ Without Ray Bradbury, there would be no Stephen King. Stephen King]. Without Ray Bradbury, there wouldn t be American pop culture.
He is the Shakespeare of American geek culture, which, in effect, is American pop culture. The Waukegan-born writer is a popularizer of ideas so frequently plundered, subjects so unusual yet routinely picked at, reading "The Stories of Ray Bradbury "becomes a crash course in not just genre but what its modern voice sounds like.
Christopher Borrelli, "Chicago Tribune"" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
One hundred of Ray Bradbury's remarkable stories which have earned him a huge international audience and a reputation as the premier science fiction and fantasy writer of our times. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.See all Product Description
