9780008132880: Summer Morning, Summer Night

One of Ray Bradbury’s classic short story collections, available in ebook for the first time.

Ray Bradbury is one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century. Author of the iconic FAHRENHEIT 451, THE ILLUSTRATED MAN and THE MARTIAN CHRONICLES, Bradbury published some five hundred short stories, novels and plays in his lifetime.

SUMMER MORNING, SUMMER NIGHT is a collection of short stories and vignettes based in Green Town, Illinois, the setting for his 1957 novel DANDELION WINE.

In one story a pair of elderly sisters create a love potion that carries unexpected consequences and in another a lonely teacher discovers love on Green Town’s nocturnal streets. This beautifully woven tapestry of stories illuminates some of Green Town’s hidden corners, and reaffirms Bradbury’s position as an undisputed master of fiction.

Product Description:

One of Ray Bradbury’s classic short story collections, available in ebook for the first time.

Green Town, Illinois stands at the very heart of Ray Bradbury Country. A lovingly re-imagined version of the author's native Waukegan, it has served as the setting for such modern classics as Dandelion Wine, Something Wicked This Way Comes, and Farewell Summer.

In Summer Morning, Summer Night, Bradbury returns to this signature locale with a generous new collection of twenty-seven stories and vignettes, seventeen of which have never been published before. Together, they illuminate some of Green Town's previously hidden corners, and reaffirm Bradbury's position as the undisputed master of a unique fictional universe.

Review:

'Let us now praise Ray Bradbury, the uncrowned poet laureate of science fiction.' The Times

‘No other writer uses language with greater originality and zest. he seems to be a American Dylan Thomas – with discipline’ Sunday Telegraph

'It is impossible not to admire the vigour of his prose, similes and metaphors constantly cascading from his imagination' Spectator

‘Bradbury is an authentic original’ Time Magazine

‘No other writer uses language with greater originality and zest. he seems to be a American Dylan Thomas – with discipline’ Sunday Telegraph
