Summer Morning, Summer Night

ISBN 978-1596062023 (Subterranean Press)

This book returns Bradbury readers to Green Town, Illinois – the setting for classic Bradbury novels such as Dandelion Wine, Something Wicked This Way Comes, and Farewell Summer.

It is a new collection of 27 stories (17 new). Not all the stories hit the sweet spot, but enough to make the purchase worthwhile. Here’s just a sample of his imagery…

“The rain came as a cool surprise. It smelled of soda water and limes and oranges and the cleanest freshest river in the world, made of snow-water, falling from the high, parched sky.”

In the best stories, you can just feeeel the lazzzy summer atmosphere. As it should be… a good read!
