About Shadow Show: All-New Stories in Celebration of Ray Bradbury

• Paperback: 464 pages
• Publisher: William Morrow Paperbacks (July 10, 2012)

“Ray Bradbury is without a doubt, one of this, or any century’s greatest and most imaginative writers. Shadow Show, a book of truly great stories, is the perfect tribute to America’s master storyteller.” —Stan Lee, legendary comic book writer and former president and chairman of Marvel Comics

Shadow Show is a treasure trove for Bradbury enthusiasts. . . .The tributes to Ray Bradbury that follow each of the stories are particularly interesting, often heartwarming and inspiring.” —New York Times bestselling author Joyce Carol Oates

What do you imagine when you hear the name . . . Bradbury?

You might see rockets to Mars. Or bizarre circuses where otherworldly acts whirl in the center ring. Perhaps you travel to a dystopian future, where books are set ablaze . . . or to an out-of-the-way sideshow, where animated illustrations crawl across human skin. Or maybe, suddenly, you’re returned to a simpler time in small-town America, where summer perfumes the air and life is almost perfect . . .almost.

Ray Bradbury—peerless storyteller, poet of the impossible, and one of America’s most beloved authors—is a literary giant whose remarkable career has spanned seven decades. Now twenty-six of today’s most diverse and celebrated authors offer new short works in honor of the master; stories of heart, intelligence, and dark wonder from a remarkable range of creative artists.
