Something Wicked This Way Comes

«A darkly poetic tale . . . probably Bradbury's best work»

Stephen King

It's All Hallow's Eve, and Cooger and Dark's Pandemonium Shadow Show has come to town.

Hear the music, see the lights, shrug off life's worries and enter a place where dreams are not dreams, and wishes can be real.

All this awaits two boys trembling on the brink of manhood. But entering the smoke, mazes and mirrors, they will discover that not all dreams are worth the cost that must be paid . . .

Ray Bradbury's seminal tale of life in small-town America is as prescient today as it was sixty years ago.

Om forfatteren

Ray Bradbury (1920-2012)
Ray Douglas Bradbury, an American fantasy, science fiction, horror and mystery fiction writer, wrote more than 500 short stories, novels, plays, screenplays, television scripts and poems during his prolific career. Lauded as one of America's most elegant and poetic writers, acclaimed by many to be the inventor of dark fantasy, he won many major awards, including the World Fantasy Award for Life Achievement and being named a Nebula Grandmaster. Bradbury is perhaps best known for his dystopian novel Fahrenheit 451 (1953) and for other science fiction and horror stories gathered together as The Martian Chronicles (1950) and The Illustrated Man (1951). He passed away in 2012, at the age of 91.
