Description


Four classics of the imagination from one of America's most beloved authors--including the complete Martian Chronicles.

A master storyteller and visionary champion of creative freedom, Ray Bradbury is one of the most beloved and influential writers of our time. To explore the worlds of his books, his astonishing futures and haunting pasts, is to rediscover the wondrous possibilities of life. This Library of America edition gathers four of his greatest works in a single volume. Here is The Martian Chronicles in the complete form Bradbury came to prefer, its twenty-eight linked story-chapters offering visionary glimpses of our spacefaring future. In the dystopian thriller Fahrenheit 451, books and all they contain are forbidden. Dandelion Wine distills the enchanting essences of a childhood summer, while Something Wicked This Way Comes conjures the wild, centrifugal imaginings of youthful terror, in a fight to the death against supernatural foes. Biographer Jonathan R. Eller offers a newly researched chronology of Bradbury’s life and career and detailed textual and explanatory notes.
