(14),-305,(3). 8vo, blue clo th with silver initials and decoration to front board, silver lettering to spine, top edge dyed pale blue. "Ray Bradbury's new collection, his first in five years, displays once more the remarkable diversity and strength thathave always characterized his work. In these eighteen stories, he conducts the reader on a tour through time and space -- into the unbounded dimensio ns of the future, and through remapped patterns of the past -- as he intermingles the bizarre with the familiar and brings tomorrow and yesterday closer to today. In Bradbury's world, mechanical grandmothers, fourth-dimensional babies, and humanoid national heroes co-exist with the Irish Republican Army, Texas chicken farmers, and 'the only A-1 first-class taxidermist on the Coast'. And just as diverse is Bradbury's range of voices and styles. Here are stories of suspense, humor, life -- as well as of fable, science fiction (the extraordinary novella, 'The Lost City of Mars'), and the beautiful cantata for words, 'Christus Apollo'." - from the dustjacket. Includes the following stories: "The Kilimanjaro Dance", "The Terrible Conflagration up at the Place", "Tomorrow's Child", "The Women", "The Inspired Chicken Motel", "Downwind from Gettysburg", "Yes, We'll Gather at the River", "The Cold Wind and the Warm", "Night Call, Collect", "The Haunting of the New", "I Sing the Body Electric!", "The Tombling Day", "Any Friend of Nicholas Nickleby's Is a Friend of Mine", "Heavy-Set", "The Man in the Rorschach Shirt", "Henry the Ninth", "The Lost City of Mars", and "Christus Apollo".
