Ray Bradbury is one of the most celebrated fiction writers of the 20th century. He is the author of such classics as Fahrenheit 451, The Martian Chronicles, The Illustrated Man, Dandelion Wine, and Something Wicked This Way Comes. Ray Bradbury is also the recipient of the 2000 National Book Foundation Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American letters. But he is known, first and foremost, as a creator of outstanding short fiction. As in his most recent major fiction collections, DRIVING BLIND (1997) and QUICKER THAN THE EYE (1996), Bradbury has once again pulled together a stellar group of stories sure to delight readers young and old, old and new. In ONE MORE FOR THE ROAD we are treated to the best this talented talemeister has to offer — the eerie and strange, nostalgic and bittersweet, searching and speculative. Here are a father’s regrets, a lover’s last embrace, a child’s dreams of the future —all delivered with the trademark Bradbury wit and style.
