From an incomparable artist whose stories have reshaped America's literary landscape come two bewitching novellas that have never before appeared in print?each distinctly different, yet uniquely Bradbury?demonstrating the breathtaking range of the master's talent and the irrepressible vitality of his mind, spirit, and heart.
In Somewhere a Band Is Playing, a writer is drawn by poetry and dreams to tiny Summerton, Arizona, a community hidden in plain view, where the residents, miraculously, never seem to age. Enchanted by its powerful rural magic?and by a beautiful, enigmatic lady?the writer sets out to uncover Summerton's mysteries before the inevitable arrival of a ruthless and soulless destruction.
With Leviathan '99, the author who once colonized Mars returns to the cosmos to brilliantly reimagine Herman Melville's classic masterwork of obsession and the sea, transforming a great whale into a massive, worlds-devouring comet. In the year 2099, fledgling astronaut Ishmael Hunnicut Jones boards the Cetus 7, placing his fate in the hands of a relentless madman who is blindly chasing the celestial monster's tail.
Rich in poetry, wonder, and truth?brimming with imagination, intelligence, and delectable sly humor?here is proof positive that the words and stories of the inimitable Bradbury will live on . . . Now and Forever.
Inhaltsangabe: Two dazzling new novellas from the celebrated author of Fahrenheit 451. Two previously unpublished novellas comprise this astonishing new volume from one of science fiction's greatest living writers. In the first, 'Somewhere a Band is Playing', newsman James Cardiff is lured through poetry and his fascination with a beautiful and enigmatic young woman to Summerton, Arizona. The small town's childless population hold an extraordinary secret which has been passed on for thousands of years unbeknownst to the rest of human civilization. In the second novella, 'Leviathan '99', the classic tale of Herman Melville's 'Moby Dick' is reborn as an interstellar adventure. It recounts the exploits of the mad Captain Ahab, who, blinded by his first encounter with a gigantic comet called 'Leviathan', pursues his lunatic vendetta across the universe. Born in space and seeking adventure in the skies, astronaut Ishmael Jones joins the crew aboard the Cetus 7 and quickly finds his fate in the hands of an indefatigable captain. Published together for the first time in one volume, these two stories twinkle with Bradbury's characteristically intricate metaphors and lyrical phrases. Both are a lasting testament to an older generation of writers that, much like the Leviathan itself, are on the threshold of passing on into the realm of legend.
