Description

The Illustrated Man, a seminal work in Ray Bradbury's career, whose extraordinary power and imagination remain undimmed by time's passage.... Ray Bradbury brings wonders alive. For this peerless American storyteller, the most bewitching force in the universe is human nature. In these eighteen startling tales unfolding across a canvas of tattooed skin, living cities take their vengeance, technology awakens the most primal natural instincts, and dreams are carried aloft in junkyard rockets. Provocative and powerful, The Illustrated Man is a kaleidoscopic blending of magic, imagination, and truth--as exhilarating as interplanetary travel, as maddening as a walk in a million-year rain, and as comforting as simple, familiar rituals on the last night of the world.

Professional reviews

"Along with THE MARTIAN CHRONICLES, this is Ray Bradbury's most celebrated an-thology of short stories. Together they helped lift science fiction out of the pulps and into the mainstream of American literature. The eerie framing device sets the mood for the entire set--an unnamed narrator comes across a carnival performer whose living tattoos conjure "true" tales of future events. Paul Hecht has a rich, mature, expressive, virile instrument, while his careful articulation and Apollonian approach give the listener that warm, intimate feeling of being personally read to. In addition, he has a fine handle on Bradbury's mood, atmosphere, tone and characterizations. His classic radio sound adds an appropriate period flavor to this volume, originally published in 1951. Y.R. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award. (c) AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine"
