About this title

Synopsis:

“ . . . that country where it is always turning late in theyear. That country where the hills are fog and the rivers are mist; where noons go quickly, dusks and twilights linger, and midnightsstay . . . ”

Explore the outer limits of the imagination with the GrandMaster of American Literature, Ray Bradbury, in a dark and disquieting descentinto The October Country. Readers of The Martian Chronicles and TheIllustrated Man, as well as fans of H. P. Lovecraft, Rod Serling, Bram Stoker, Stephen King,and writers of other classic horror stories, will be captivated by TheOctober Country’s nineteen astonishing tales. From drowned cities tofrantic carnivals to forgotten Mexican villages, Bradbury offers anunforgettable journey into mystery, shining brief lights upon the darkestcorners of the soul.

Review:

Ray Bradbury's first short story collection is back in print, its chilling encounters with funhouse mirrors, parasitic accident-watchers, and strange poker chips intact. Both sides of Bradbury's vaunted childhood nostalgia are also on display, in the celebratory "Uncle Einar," and haunting "The Lake," the latter a fine elegy to childhood loss. This edition features a new introduction by Bradbury, an invaluable essay on writing, wherein the author tells of his "Theater of Morning Voices," and, by inference, encourages you to listen to the same murmurings in yourself. And has any writer anywhere ever made such good use of exclamation marks!?
