Présentation de l'éditeur

Ray Bradbury is a painter who uses words rather than brushes--for he created lasting visual images that, once observed, are impossible to forget. Sinister mushrooms growing in a dank cellar. A family's first glimpse at Martians. A wonderful white vanilla ice-cream summer suit that changes everyone who wears it. A great artist drawing in the sand on the beach. A clunky contraption made out of household implements to help some kids play a game called Invasion. The most marvelous Christmas display a little boy ever saw. All those images and many more are inside this book, a new trade edition of thirty-one of Bradbury's most arresting tales--timeless short fiction that ranges from the farthest reaches of space to the innermost stirrings of the heart. Ray Bradbury is known worldwide as one of the century's great men of imagination. Here are thirty-one reasons why.Ray Bradbury is a painter who uses words rather than brushes--for he created lasting visual images that, once observed, are impossible to forget.

Biographie de l'auteur

In a career spanning more than seventy years, Ray Bradbury, who died on June 5, 2011 at the age of 91, inspired generations of readers to dream, think, and create. A prolific author of hundreds of short stories and close to fifty books, as well as numerous poems, essays, operas, plays, teleplays, and screenplays, Bradbury was one of the most celebrated writers of our time. His groundbreaking works include Fahrenheit 451, The Martian Chronicles, The Illustrated Man, Dandelion Wine, and Something Wicked This Way Comes. He wrote the screen play for John Huston's classic film adaptation of Moby Dick, and was nominated for an Academy Award. He adapted sixty-five of his stories for television's The Ray Bradbury Theater, and won an Emmy for his teleplay of The Halloween Tree. He was the recipient of the 2000 National Book Foundation Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters, the 2004 National Medal of Arts, and the 2007 Pulitzer Prize Special Citation, among many honors.

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."

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Collection by a Master Short-Story Writer 18 mai 2002
Par Brian C. Taylor - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Ray Bradbury is one of the most distinctive and talented writers that the sci-fi pulps of the 40's and 50's spawned. He's got a really unique voice, and his stories, usually very short and very readable, are certainly a example of sci-fi at its finest. Some really great stories in this collection. However, I guess it's kind of silly to call this a sci-fi collection. There's horror, fantasy, sci-fi, and a lot of plain old good short story in this collection. If you like to read short stories, I highly recommend any of his collections, because they seem consistently good to me.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Bradbury, A Medicine For Melancholy And Other Stories 8 octobre 2011
Par Awilson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Ray Bradbury's A Medicine For Melancholy collection was a pleasant surprise after reading several horrible books in a row. This collection is full of stories that are sometimes scary, sometimes sad, and sometimes puzzling to the emotions. Most of the stories in this volume impressed me, even the ones that talked about rockets and Mars, which seemed to be every other one. A few of them are incredibly memorable like The Wonderful Ice-Cream Suit because of its erie but comical quality. I also loved All Summer In A Day which is an imaginative and impossible story about a small girl's huge disappointment on the planet Venus. The Town Where No One Got Off is yet another memorable story that made me wonder what would happen if I just got off the train at a town in the middle of no where without telling anyone. Great collection with very few duds in the mix.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Intriguing 14 avril 2001
Par Lauren - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Wow- this book is a creative, intelligent, easy-to-understand treasure! Each story is about 5-25 pages, some are shorter than others. They are not all alike, so you are guaranteed to like at least a few, but it is hard to believe that someone might not like most of them. ray bradbury writes very well and i am sure you will enjoy this book. try it!!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A must for Bradbury fans 27 septembre 2008
Par Emily J. Morris - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I always tend to think of Ray Bradbury as one of the science fiction masters. And that is not to say that this collection has zero science fiction, for it does. But there are several stories where Bradbury takes his skill past the sci-fi and fully into the heartfelt world he so often covers in his other books. The stories range from romance to the rainy worlds of Venus and every place inbetween as Bradbury demonstrates some stunning and always powerful imagination.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 To be read over and over 24 juillet 2013

I love this collection of Bradbury short stories, and just purchased it for my Kindle. They can be read over and over and the language is lovely. I especially love "The Scent of Sarsaparilla" but they're all good. You don't need monsters from space to create enchanting science fiction. You just need Ray Bradbury.
