What do you imagine when you hear the name . . . Bradbury?
You might see rockets to Mars. Or bizarre circuses where otherworldly acts whirl in the center ring. Perhaps you travel to a dystopian future, where books are set ablaze . . . or to an out-of-the-way sideshow, where animated illustrations crawl across human skin. Or maybe, suddenly, you're returned to a simpler time in small-town America, where summer perfumes the air and life is almost perfect . . . almost.
Ray Bradbury—peerless storyteller, poet of the impossible, and one of America's most beloved authors—is a literary giant whose remarkable career has spanned seven decades. Now twenty-six of today's most diverse and celebrated authors offer new short works in honor of the master; stories of heart, intelligence, and dark wonder from a remarkable range of creative artists.
“Ray Bradbury is without a doubt, one of this, or any century’s greatest and most imaginative writers. SHADOW SHOW, a book of truly great stories, is the perfect tribute to America’s master storyteller.”
-Stan Lee, legendary comic book writer and former president and chairman of Marvel Comics
“Great new tales of imagination in the Bradbury tradition.”
-Hugh Hefner, publisher and founder of Playboy Enterprises
“SHADOW SHOW is a treasure-trove for Ray Bradbury enthusiasts as for all readers who are drawn to richly imaginative, deftly plotted, startlingly original and unsettling short fiction.”
---Joyce Carol Oates, New York Times bestselling author
“This anthology reflects the high imagination, visionary ideas, and fantastic writing that Ray is loved and known for around the world.”
-Former public school teacher, librarian, and First Lady Laura Bush
“Editorial interest and experience converge here to produce an exciting book.”
