Ray Bradbury fans will be pleased to discover Harper Perennial will be releasing Bradbury Speaks: Too Soon from the Cave, Too Far from the Stars in paperback on August 15th. The list price is $14.95, but you can pick up a copy from Amazon.com for only $5.98.
Description: He is an American treasure, a clear-eyed fantasist without peer, and a literary icon who has created wonder for the better part of seven decades. On subjects as diverse as fiction, the future, film, famous personalities, and more, Ray Bradbury has much to say, as only he can say it.
Collected between these covers are memories, ruminations, opinions, prophecies, and philosophies from one of the most influential and admired writers of our time. As unique, unabashed, and irrepressible as the artist himself, here is an intimate portrait, painted with the master’s own words, of the one and only Ray Bradbury — far more revealing than any mere memoir, for it opens windows not only into his life and work but also into his mind and heart.
Ray Bradbury is the author of more than three dozen books, including Fahrenheit 451, The Martian Chronicles, Dandelion Wine, and Something Wicked This Way Comes. He has written for the theater and cinema, including the screenplay for John Huston’s classic adaptation of Moby Dick. He was nominated for an Academy Award, won an Emmy for his teleplay of The Halloween Tree, and adapted sixty-five of his stories for television’s The Ray Bradbury Theater.
