Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
Grandmasterof American Letters Ray Bradbury presents the 16 vintage stories and novellasthat informed and prefigured the creation of his dystopian classic,  Fahrenheit451. Collecting rare and unknown tales as well as notable early triumphs, A Pleasure to Burn offers an unparalleled window into Bradbury’s creativeprocess, and a unique glimpse at the evolution of one of the greatest works of20 th century American literature. Absolutely essential for fans ofBradbury books like Dandelion Wine, Something Wicked This Way Comes, The Illustrated Man, and The Martian Chronicles—and for readersof William Golding, George Orwell, Aldous Huxley, and other titans ofspeculative fiction— A Pleasure to Burn illuminates the unusual hiddencorners of Bradbury’s expansive imagination, revealing a creative force asvivid and powerful as the hottest burning flame.

Review:

Ray Bradbury’s novel Fahrenheit 451 is an enduring masterwork of twentieth-century American literature—a chilling vision of a dystopian future built on the foundations of ignorance, censorship, and brutal repression. The origins and evolution of Bradbury’s darkly magnificent tale are explored in A Pleasure to Burn, a collection of sixteen selected shorter works that prefigure the grand master’s landmark novel. Classic, thematically interrelated stories alongside many crucial lesser-known ones—including, at the collection’s heart, the novellas “Long After Midnight” and “The Fireman”—A Pleasure to Burn is an indispensable companion to the most powerful work of America’s preeminent storyteller, a wondrous confirmation of the inimitable Bradbury’s brilliance, magic . . . and fire.
