After more than a half century at the game, Bradbury still hasn t lost his masterful touch. St. Louis Post-Dispatch
His stories and novels are part of the American language. Washington Post
Fahrenheit 451. The Martian Chronicles. The Illustrated Man. Dandelion Wine. Something Wicked This Way Comes these are just a few of the vast collection of master works by Ray Bradbury, one of the best-known and most beloved of American writers. We ll Always Have Paris, his new collection of stories gathered together for the first time, is a treasure trove of Bradbury gems eerie and strange, nostalgic and bittersweet, searching and speculative and a joyous celebration of the lifelong work of a literary legend.
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."
“With this collection of 21 stories and a poem, Bradbury employs the humor, empathy, and quirky approach that have been the hallmarks of his career. . . . These accessible stories are quick to read but may linger long after the book is done. Recommended for all.”
