(Original Review, 1980-09-11)


I tend to think in too cynical channels, and some comments sort of swept me back to the days when I found a Pocketbook (that's the trademarked name, not the generic) called NEW TALES OF SPACE AND TIME on the racks in our local US Import bookshop, plunked down my 2 escudos, and got COMPLETELY blown away on SF.

Walter Mitty: "The Stories of Ray Bradbury" by Ray Bradbury
Stories of Ray Bradbury - Ray Bradbury


(Original Review, 1980-11-16)


There are two ways to look at the work of Ray Bradbury. One is to remember how it was: to return to the old friends of youth, when these stories were beautiful, perceptive and spoke of important things. The other is to look at them as they are now: elegant, but a little shallow; obvious; sentimentalized. To do the latter is to deny the child still within us. Not to do it is to deny the child's long struggle to become an adult. What to do? Bradbury peers quizzically out of the jacket photo, and, startlingly, displays a strong resemblance to James Thurber's customary expression.

The Halloween Tree - audio
The Halloween Tree - Bronson Pinchot,Ray Bradbury
That was an interesting story. With an assortment of monsters, I thought their night would never end. They had only set out to go trick-or-treating but the Halloween pumpkin tree provided them a magical experience.
 
It was Halloween night and as they gathered, they noticed that Pipkin was not amongst them. They needed Pipkin, for he was like their ringleader. They waited and when he finally arrived, Pipkin looked sick. He tells the rest of the group to head out and he will join up with them in a bit.
 
The group heads out and they arrive at a mansion where there is a huge tree nearby. Hanging from this tree are jack-o-lanterns that begin to glow, randomly. This excites the group. At the door, a man tells them he has no treats, but he has a trick and the door shuts. Bewildered, the boys start to walk away when the man jumps out at them from beside the glowing tree. This begins their journey with Mr. Moundshroud, as they track down Pipkin.
 
I didn’t feel that this novel was frightening but it was an entertaining and adventurous tale. It had Halloween characters in it and it talked about death, so you should know your audience before sharing this novel with anyone.

Did I just read a story about a serial killer? Or what? Colour me baffled...

These Things Happen: Bradbury seems to have idolised certain authority figures as a child, particularly librarians and teachers.
