GOLDEN APPLES OF THE SUN by Ray Bradbury, art by Joe Mugnaini. Burton, MI; Subterranean Press; 2008. 1st trade hardcover edition.
This special edition of Ray Bradbury’s seminal collection, Golden Apples of the Sun, not only restores the original 1953 table of contents--including such classics as “The Pedestrian,” “A Sound of Thunder,” and “The Fog Horn”--it also features, for the first time anywhere, an extra 48 pages -- play versions of two of these extraordinary tales, printed in facsimile format, exactly as Bradbury originally wrote them.
Golden Apples of the Sun is printed in two colors throughout.
From Publishers Weekly (starred review):
"A half century after its initial appearance, Bradbury's fourth published book remains vivid and memorable. The original table of contents is restored (under Joe Mugnaini's iconic original cover art), with Bradbury's familiar and characteristically wistful, dreamy fantasy, such as 'The April Witch,' a haunting tale of teenage dream-traveler Cecy and her desperate desire for romance, mingling with brilliant science fiction like the title story and the widely reprinted 'A Sound of Thunder.'"
FIRST EDITION IS OUT OF PRINT. Fine in fine dj. (Will go into a second printing with a slightly different dj & cheaper production values like a lesser grade of paper etc).
