Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Ray Bradbury's first short story collection is back in print, its chilling encounters with funhouse mirrors, parasitic accident-watchers, and strange poker chips intact. Both sides of Bradbury's vaunted childhood nostalgia are also on display, in the celebratory "Uncle Einar," and haunting "The Lake," the latter a fine elegy to childhood loss. This edition features a new introduction by Bradbury, an invaluable essay on writing, wherein the author tells of his "Theater of Morning Voices," and, by inference, encourages you to listen to the same murmurings in yourself. And has any writer anywhere ever made such good use of exclamation marks!? -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

Synopsis

A collection of short stories by the famous science fiction writer that border on the bizarre, including "Skeleton," "The small assassin," "Touched with fire," and "Uncle Einar".

Basically an edited and spruced up version of his short story collection Dark Carnival, this is still prime reading, even though it does make you want to see what the original collection was like. However the stuff here and some of Bradbury's greatest even if most of his fans don't remember or realize that in his early days he was an excellent writer of horror fiction, definitely more poetic than Stephen King and on many levels just as frightening. The best stories here are utterly disturbing in both the calmness of tone and the horror of the situation (notably "The Small Assassin") and several come close to his trademark nostalgia, for the most part it's absent here. Some of the other stories take a twist and turn it into terror, such as the one with the fact that people are more likely to murder at ninety two degrees in temperature. And all of it ranks as some of his best writing, even when the storieis themselves are merely okay, the lyrical nature of his writing resonates and shows why Bradbury can't be easily shoehorned into one catagory, whether people try to classify him as fantasy, horror, science-fiction, whatever. He's just a writer and in his case that's good enough.

Ray Bradbury's name is synonymous with imagination and in this collection of short stories he proves that beyond a reasonable doubt. I know, I used to cringe at his name. That is before I learned that he didn't just write science fiction (a genre of which I am not too fond). These stories range from a bizarre account of one couple's visit to a Mexican town and the mummies that reside there (The Next In Line), a loyal dog that brings its young bed-ridden owner things from out in the world, even things from cemeteries (The Emissary), a baby born with an evil intelligence (The Small Assassin), a man who is the heir to Death's job (The Scythe), and an observant boy who deals with a tenant vampire in a very unique way (The Man Upstairs). The stories I have listed are of particualr impact and my favorites of the collection, but overall word for word, page for page each story is priceless. If you are a fan of horror fiction or just plain old imaginative writing in general invest in the works of Ray Bradbury, you won't regret it.

Mr. Bradbury is truly one of the most creative, macabre, intelligent writers of this or any other century. This collection of 19 stories is a fine example of the range of Bradbury's abilities. I must admit, after the first couple stories, I wondered aloud the excellent reviews the book received. After I'd finished, however, I realized how remarkable this book is. I gave it a 9 (out of a possible 10) rating; the above graphic is actually 4.5 stars. Of the 19 stories, only one or two are veritable duds. About half are above average reading, and the remaining seven or eight are simply enchanting. Or harrowing. Or, well, touching. "Uncle Einar" is touching. By the way, here's my top five stories in "October Country," which I'd recommend to any reader wishing to enjoy a Poe-type experience: 1. The Wonderful Death of Dudley Stone 2. The Scythe 3. The Wind 4. The Crowd 5. The Small Assassin

I borrowed this book from the library, having heard about the story "Next in Line." At first, I thought that the book as silly and ridecules, but as I continued reading, something mysterious in the writing seemed to attract me and made me into an addict of sorts. Every spare moment I had was spent reading it. It's been a few years since I read it, but of what I remember, I thoroughly enjoyed The Small Assassin. It was great. The Wind was hauting. I didn't care for the Scythe, though. I found it extremely dumb and dissapionting. Some of the storied were extremely lacking, yet others were great. I loved how, after the whol story, it was usually the last sentance that really got you, that brought it all together. After reading these reviews, I'm dying to read it again. I highly recomend this great book.

Bradbury, who had always wanted to write poetry was heartened when a collegue told him that he already was a poet, then read him some passages from Martian Chronicles. October Country,an edited version of his first collection called Dark Carnival, also shows this same promise. These are mostly tales of horror written for pulp magazines of the thirties and forties. They are frightening stories which resound with Bradbury's own unique poetic voice. These are tales that could easily have been told 'round the fire and that may be their best setting. Accompanied by Joe Mugnaini's lovely illustrations, it only leaves you wanting to know what the original edition was like. Unless you have great luck, or a large book buying budget, October Country will have to suffice.

Every year just before I reread The Homecoming. It was the first Bradbury story I ever read, way back in 5th grade, and I fell in love with it immediately. When Bradbury writes about an apple pie, in a few quick words you smell it. I love this collection, as I love Farenheit 451, The Martian Chronicles, and The Illustrated Man. The stories in here range from the odd to the silly to the chilling, the kind of stories you want to tell in a tent by a flashlight on a camping trip with your old buddies. They are for the child and the terror in us all. May you all fly with Uncle Einar!
