‘Ray Bradbury has long been streets, ahead of anyone else. He has the imagination of Wells coupled with the gift of prose writing” – Daily Telegraph

‘Everything he writes has a glow of individual magic about it’ –Time & Tide

A fantastic journey into a world of beauty and terror with thirteen of the very best of Bradbury.
A baby born with the urge to kill — the couple who leave for a honeymoon, in a cemetery — a husband and wife who had an unpleasant experience with some mummified Mexican corpses — the tombstone in the bedroom — a little boy who examines the macabre entrails of the man upstairs.
A chilling collection that will linger in the dark vaults of your memory, long after you have finished reading it.
