From an incomparable artist whose stories have reshaped America's literary landscape come two bewitching novellas that have never before appeared in print--each distinctly different, yet uniquely Bradbury--demonstrating the breathtaking range of the master's talent and the irrepressible vitality of his mind, spirit, and heart.
In "Somewhere a Band Is Playing," a writer is drawn by poetry and dreams to tiny Summerton, Arizona, a community hidden in plain view, where the residents, miraculously, never seem to age. Enchanted by its powerful rural magic--and by a beautiful, enigmatic lady--the writer sets out to uncover Summerton's mysteries before the inevitable arrival of a ruthless and soulless destruction.
With "Leviathan '99," the author who once colonized Mars returns to the cosmos to brilliantly reimagine Herman Melville's classic masterwork of obsession and the sea, transforming a great whale into a massive, worlds-devouring comet. In the year 2099, fledgling astronaut Ishmael Hunnicut Jones boards the "Cetus 7," placing his fate in the hands of a relentless madman who is blindly chasing the celestial monster's tail.
Rich in poetry, wonder, and truth--brimming with imagination, intelligence, and delectable sly humor--here is proof positive that the words and stories of the inimitable Bradbury will live on . . . "Now and Forever."
