Read SFFH author Joe Hill's introduction to Ray Bradbury's forthcoming The Martian Chronicles: The Complete Edition

Thanks to the generosity of Subterranean Press and PS Publishing, you can read SFFH author Joe Hill’s introduction to the forthcoming limited edition of The Martian Chronicles: The Complete Edition (late 2009), a “massively expanded new edition of the Ray Bradbury magnum opus” that contains, among other treasures, 22 previously uncollected or unpublished Martian stories written by the timeless guy of Sci-Fi. Hill’s intro to these 22 stories is entitled “Undiscovered Mars, Unseen Bradbury,” and here are his opening lines:

"I was thirteen the first time I read Bradbury, one of his later novels, Death is a Lonely Business. That first encounter with his prose was a shock of delight and discovery, on par with the moment in The Wizard of Oz when Dorothy steps out of her black-and-white house and into a world of impossible color."

The Great Recession is over, time to start buying books again!
