“After more than a half century at the game, Bradbury still hasn’t lost his masterful touch.” — St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“His stories and novels are part of the American language.” — Washington Post

Fahrenheit 451. The Martian Chronicles. The Illustrated Man. Dandelion Wine. Something Wicked This Way Comes… these are just a few of the vast collection of master works by Ray Bradbury, one of the best-known and most beloved of American writers. We’ll Always Have Paris, his new collection of stories gathered together for the first time, is a treasure trove of Bradbury gems—eerie and strange, nostalgic and bittersweet, searching and speculative… and a joyous celebration of the lifelong work of a literary legend.

Of course we will always have Ray Bradbury! As long as children run to the sound of the carousel, and the circus parade; as long as dandelions still grow in our front lawns; as long as the call of the train or bright trails of rockets reach out to us across the miles, Ray will be with us. Whether, as in this collection of never before published stories, we walk the streets of Venice, Ca., or the rues de Paris, or discover the true nature of man's best friend or the truth in young love, we we can be sure that Ray's view of the ordinary will be just a bit extraordinary.

This twenty-one short story and one poem (¿America¿) anthology showcases the width and depth of the great science fiction novelist Ray Bradbury. As the author explains in his Introduction, his skin contains two people: a watcher and a writer. The watcher personality surfaces in slices of life mostly on earth like ¿Massinello Pietro¿, ¿Pieta Summer¿, ¿Last Laughs¿, ¿The Visit¿, and ¿We'll Always Have Paris¿, etc. Of course Mr. Bradbury also provides his expected unexpected sci fi-horror thrillers such as ¿The Reincarnate¿ and ¿Fly Away Home¿, which reads like a Twilight Zone tale. The collection is top rate although none go as deep obviously as the novels, but entries like ¿A Literary Encounter" with a psychological thriller spin showcases Mr. Bradbury¿s talent beyond the other world speculative fiction arena he is renowned for.

Some nice solid short stories in this collection from Ray Bradbury. I liked some more than others, but all were interesting and just very simply laid out. A quick read for sure. If you're a Bradbury fan to begin with, they will feel familiar and comfortable.
