Summer Night, Summer Morning, Ray Bradbury
Summer Morning, Summer Night - Ray Bradbury

This book could do with an editorial introduction. It seems like it collects all the Green Town stories into one place (aside from the novels) whether published in Bradbury's lifetime or not, but then one is clearly set in a coastal town or city. Many of the previously unpublished "vignettes", as they are described on the cover blurb, appear to be isolated scenes that either never developed in to full stories or were cut from a story or novel for some reason. Hence an editorial - to explain the aim of the book and where the previously unpublished material came from.

 

Anyway, this is pure Bradbury in terms of writing style, plot and theme and a delight to read, even if those off-cut scenes appear to just be filler to bulk up what remains a slender volume.

(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.
