Staff Reviews


Featuring a great line-up of popular contemporary authors, this is a collection of all kinds of stories: some futuristic and some nostalgic. They are often eerie or melancholy, some tell of childhood gone-by, while others tell of pivotal moments in a life. The common thread is the creativity and imagination that brought them to existence and that they were inspired by Ray Bradbury. The diversity contained in this book is a testament to the widespread influence Ray Bradbury has had on so many writers of our time and, it follows, on so many readers as well. --Sharon

Description


"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."

"Great new tales of imagination in the Bradbury tradition."
--Hugh Hefner, publisher and founder of Playboy Enterprises

In Shadow Show, 26 acclaimed writers have come together to pay tribute to the work of the one and only Ray Bradbury with never before published stories inspired by the master. The incomparable literary artist who has given us such timeless classics as Fahrenheit 451, The Martian Chronicles, The Illustrated Man, and Dandelion Wine, is being honored by some of the most notable names in the writing world--including Neil Gaiman, Joe Hill, Audrey Niffenegger, Margaret Atwood, Alice Hoffman, Robert McCammon, and more--with new short fiction that thrills, frightens, moves, and dazzles in the great Bradbury tradition. Edited by Sam Weller and Mort Castle, with an introduction by the man, Ray Bradbury himself, Shadow Show pays well-deserved homage to one of America's greatest, most celebrated authors.
