Ray Bradbury – The October Country (New English Library, 1973)


The Dwarf
The watchful Poker Chip of H.Matisse
The Jar
The Traveller
The Emissary
Touched with Fire
The Scythe
Uncle Einar
The Wind
There was an Old Woman
The Wonderful Death of Dudley Stone.

Companion volume to The Small Assassin which between them reprint the bulk of the stories from Bradbury’s first collection, Dark Carnival. There was almost certainly an earlier NEL edition, but i’ve not put that much effort into finding out. A great book, but not a great NEL if you get me?
