Kurzbeschreibung

30. August 2005

With his disarmingly simple style and complex imagination, Ray Bradbury has seized the minds of American readers for decades.This collection showcases thirty-two of Bradbury's most famous tales in which he lays bare the depths of the human soul. The thrilling title story, A Sound of Thunder, tells of a hunter sent on safari -- sixty million years in the past. But all it takes is one wrong step in the prehistoric jungle to stamp out the life of a delicate and harmless butterfly -- and possibly something else much closer to home ...

Produktinformation


Mehr über den Autor

Ray Bradbury gehört zu den großen Science-Fiction-Autoren Amerikas. Geboren 1920 in Waukegan, Illinois, begann Bradbury unmittelbar nach der Highschool mit dem Schreiben fantastischer Geschichten. Seinen Lebensunterhalt verdiente er sich anfangs noch als Zeitungsverkäufer, bald aber konnte er seine Erzählungen in diversen Zeitschriften veröffentlichen. 1953 wurde Bradbury mit seinem Roman "Fahrenheit 451" schlagartig weltberühmt, nicht zuletzt auch dank der Verfilmung durch François Truffaut. Mehr als 600 Geschichten und über 30 Bücher hat der Vater von vier Töchtern seither publiziert. Aber auch außerhalb der Literatur ist Bradbury immer wieder gefragt: U. a. engagierte er sich als Experte für das Fantastische bei Disneyland Paris. Heute lebt Bradbury in Los Angeles.

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

In a career spanning more than seventy years, Ray Bradbury, who died on June 5, 2011 at the age of 91, inspired generations of readers to dream, think, and create. A prolific author of hundreds of short stories and close to fifty books, as well as numerous poems, essays, operas, plays, teleplays, and screenplays, Bradbury was one of the most celebrated writers of our time. His groundbreaking works include Fahrenheit 451, The Martian Chronicles, The Illustrated Man, Dandelion Wine, and Something Wicked This Way Comes. He wrote the screen play for John Huston's classic film adaptation of Moby Dick, and was nominated for an Academy Award. He adapted sixty-five of his stories for television's The Ray Bradbury Theater, and won an Emmy for his teleplay of The Halloween Tree. He was the recipient of the 2000 National Book Foundation Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters, the 2004 National Medal of Arts, and the 2007 Pulitzer Prize Special Citation, among many honors.

Throughout his life, Bradbury liked to recount the story of meeting a carnival magician, Mr. Electrico, in 1932. At the end of his performance Electrico reached out to the twelve-year-old Bradbury, touched the boy with his sword, and commanded, "Live forever!" Bradbury later said, "I decided that was the greatest idea I had ever heard. I started writing every day. I never stopped."

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Quintessential Collection of Short Stories by Ray Bradbury 9. September 2005
Von Alexander Markham - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
'A Sound of Thunder & Other Stories' is a collection of Ray Bradbury short stories published between 1943 and 1956. Originally published as 'The Golden Apples of the Sun,' the collection features 32 of Bradbury's best short stories. In 'The Fog Horn,' the inspiration for the 1953 black and white science fiction classic `The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms,' the nameless protagonist and his boss are putting in a night's work at a remote lighthouse when the resonating fog horn attracts one of many `mysteries of the sea.' In the futuristic tale `The Pedestrian,' Bradbury presents an eerie tale that might make you think twice before you step outside for an evening walk. And in `A Sound of Thunder' upon which the Peter Hyams film of 2005 is loosely based - very, very loosely - Time Safari, Inc. promises safaris anywhere in time to hunt prehistoric animals. Every precaution is implemented to avoid a time paradox and disturbing history, based on the principle that even the slightest change can cause major changes in the future. Travelers may only shoot animals already predestined for death by natural causes or circumstances at the exact moment and are required to stay on a path that hovers above the ground. Unfortunately for the protagonist, he unintentionally deviates from the path and takes one small errant step...

Ray Bradbury, perhaps best-known today for his work `Fahrenheit 451', had once seized the minds of American readers for decades and inspired many more to follow in his literary footsteps. His stories have been the basis of screenplays for the classic television series `The Twilight Zone' and `The Outer Limits,' and feature films such as François Truffaut's brilliantly visionary film `Fahrenheit 451.' His stories are at once imaginatively complex yet simplistic in literary style. If you love science fiction - the imaginative, visionary, thought-provoking, classic form of science fiction - Ray Bradbury is a must for your personal collection.

4.0 von 5 Sternen An excellent book, but a dirty trick 8. Dezember 2005
Von kaream - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This is indeed a wonderful collection of some of Bradbury's best short stories, but as pointed out by other reviewers, it is exactly the same collection as "The Golden Apples of the Sun", simply reissued under a different title as a movie tie-in (reputed to be one of the worst movies ever made).

If you already have "Golden Apples", don't be fooled by the publisher into thinking this is a new and different book. It's hard enough as it is to collect Bradbury stories without getting a lot of duplication.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Bradbury: Common Man's Star Gazer 31. März 2006
Von Erik T. Carlson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Ray Bradbury is one of the greatest American Science Fiction writers of all time. Yet he does not portray huge battle scenes and alien invasions. He rather, achieves something unique by enthralling the reader without the traditional flash of Science Fiction. Bradbury wrote the story "R" is for rocket about a family that has little money and dreams of one day riding in a rocket ship. It is the future and rocket travel is a reality, yet a large expense. The father knows he will never be able to give his children this gift. So he instead buys a broken old rocket and puts on an elaborate hoax to give his sons the gift of space travel. This is a very realistic style of science fiction. Bradbury takes you and gives you the common mans perspective from another age. This perspective is then used to drive home the moral of his sorted little tales. He uses low diction and familiar settings to allow the reader to bond with the characters. Then the reader is shown how the characters' lives are drastically different then theirs. The result is of this difference is usually technology. Now the reader experiences the effects first hand due to the relation to the characters. Relatable characters are the strong point of Bradbury's writing and it is what gives him the ability to entertain with simpler shorter stories.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The origin of "the butterfly effect" 3. September 2012
Von carl vartian - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Ray Bradbury's genius is probably best summarized as introducing a concept that you no longer regard as science fiction but rather as common sense. A Sound of Thunder, written in 1952, involves time travel with the expressed purpose of hunting extinct animals. The safari guides appear to be aware of the concept that minuscule, infinitesimally small changes, in the past, can alter future events.

One of the hunters, a Mr. Eckels, panics at the site of a live T. rex and inadvertently steps on and kills a butterfly. 60+ million years later, the effects are felt. Fast forward to chaos theory and that the flap of a butterfly's wings on one continent can affect weather thousands of miles away. RB invented this!

L. Sprague de Camp wrote a similar story "A Gun for Dinosaur" in 1956, about a safari company that will, in exchange for large sums of money, allow you to hunt dinosaurs. The characters are more concerned with local and immediate consequences and not future events. Both stories are interesting, in their own way.

Bradbury is one of the best writers that I have ever read. I have been reading his books for fifty years and have read some three or four times. Great stories.
