9780007284733: Now and Forever

‘A meditation on writing, inspiration, ageing and change, all deep themes lightly handled, both elegiac and suspenseful… There are echoes in it not only of Melville, but of Shakespeare, Whitman and Poe … The language sings.’ The Times

‘Brilliant’ DeathRay

Praise for Ray Bradbury:

'It is impossible not to admire the vigour of his prose, similes and metaphors constantly cascading from his imagination' Spectator

'Bradbury has a remarkable range of intensity and vision' Sunday Times

‘Bradbury is an authentic original’ Time Magazine

‘No other writer uses language with greater originality and zest. he seems to be an American Dylan Thomas – with discipline’ Sunday Telegraph

Vom Verlag:

Two dazzling new novellas from the celebrated author of Fahrenheit 451.

Two previously unpublished novellas comprise this astonishing new volume from one of science fiction's greatest living writers. In the first, 'Somewhere a Band is Playing', newsman James Cardiff is lured through poetry and his fascination with a beautiful and enigmatic young woman to Summerton, Arizona. The small town's childless population hold an extraordinary secret which has been passed on for thousands of years unbeknownst to the rest of human civilization.

In the second novella, 'Leviathan '99', the classic tale of Herman Melville's ‘Moby Dick’ is reborn as an interstellar adventure. It recounts the exploits of the mad Captain Ahab, who, blinded by his first encounter with a gigantic comet called 'Leviathan', pursues his lunatic vendetta across the universe. Born in space and seeking adventure in the skies, astronaut Ishmael Jones joins the crew aboard the Cetus 7 and quickly finds his fate in the hands of an indefatigable captain.

Published together for the first time in one volume, these two stories twinkle with Bradbury's characteristically intricate metaphors and lyrical phrases. Both are a lasting testament to an older generation of writers that, much like the Leviathan itself, are on the threshold of passing on into the realm of legend.
