Actually met Ray Bradbury -- twice -- at book signings here in Chicago. Brought him some chocolates and made a card. Was so darn excited. When it came my turn to approach the table, got all goofy and couldn't speak -- just stood there grinning. As we were leaving, he turned, threw me a kiss and said "Love ya, dear."

It Came From Outer Space
Author:Ray Bradbury
Edited by: Donn Albright
448 pages
Due out March 2004
Only through Gauntlet Press

It never ceases to amaze me how much effort Gauntlet Press places in the
creation of their publications. Last week I received Ray Bradbury's "It came
From Outer Space". Honestly, I'm speechless. I know, I generally always
give books a good rating BUT - frankly, this book is breathtaking. This is a
necessary include for any Sci-Fi or Bradbury collection. WOW!

Lets start from the top shall we? First, the cover is simply stunning.
While I wish the back of the cover were really the front of the cover, I
believe that the way the cover is done it
gives the book an edge. Bradbury does the front artwork, and the back has a
poster picture, which gives the title of the book. Never the less the cover
alone is incredible and made me drool.

What is in this book, you ask? Quite literally everything you ever wanted to
know about "It Came From Outer Space". A book of this style has never
before been published. Within this tome you will find exclusive material
such as the controversy behind "It Came From Outer Space", Correspondences
both to and from Ray Bradbury, Screen treatments, never
before published short stories, original ads and more. The lettered edition
of this book includes an additional section, which includes and introduction
by Jonathan Eller, a letter from Mathilde Moser to Ray Bradbury and, the
unfinished screenplay entitled "Face of the Deep".

This book can be purchased in 3 different formats:
Signed Numbered edition
Numbered with slipcase
Traycased lettered edition.
The only difference in these various editions is that the
signed and numbered edition has an extra section. All are hardcover, measure 8 1/2" x 11",
and prices range from $125.00 - $500.00 Those that order through GP can order the Signed
numbered edition for only $100.00. Another benefit for those who order directly through GP Is
that you will also receive the previously unpublished chapbook “Is That You Herb?” by Ray Bradbury

One of the things about this book that really just touched me was when
Bradbury discusses how he met up with Spielberg after watching "Close
Encounters of the Third Kind" and found out that "It Came From Outer Space"
was the inspiration behind the Spielberg hit. Simply beautiful!

In my opinion, this book is a powerful and personal journey through the
highlights of Bradbury. You can feel the emotions that Bradbury must have
experienced in his emergent period, and it just empowers your soul. This
book shows you a boy with a love for a genre and the fortitude to embark
upon his dream, making it his life.

I strongly urge you purchase this book if you have any ounce of sense in
you. This is most definitely the quintessential piece for any Sci-Fi/Bradbury fan.
5 Stars without a doubt!

I agree...read the book. Bradbury can take a confirmed "I hate reading...reading is for nerds and jack -asses" to a tremendos fan of tremendous writing and social commentary.

I read The Illustrated Man when I was 9 years old. Went from Where the Wild Things Are to that book. I found it very imaginative and well worth the read. I never looked back and got involved with the Borroughs Mars books. But I will read It Came from Outer Space. Did it get an ESPY?

i am listening to the audio cd of fehrenheit 451, and it is amazing! such eloquent use of the language.. so sensuously descriptive. very odd that i had not heard of this wonderful author earlier.

>>By m&m   (Monday, 17 May 2004 22:29)

Fahrenheit 451 is very good.

it's probably just me but ray's writing has never seemed to me like "Science Fiction". extremely intelligent, yes. captivating and eloquent, yes. but not really sci fi.

i love the man for what he has done for me through his writing.

Well, maybe not a 'Science fiction' writer in the modern meaning, but definitely unique -check out "The Halloween tree'.
He managed to turn death into a celebration of the life.

Iv`e just read the post by Igor,and i must agree "Gauntlett press put out some great book ,i have just ordered "Bullit Trick" from them due out this fall,Subterranean Press also put out great books i also ordered Ray Bradbury`s "Where Everything Ends" due out soon,anyone here read Robert Bloch ,Fredric Brown And Richard Matheson ,I have lots if Mathesons Signed limited additions in my collection now ,part of the fun with collecting is finding the ones you have looked for ,for ages then there it is.

I love Ray Bradbury ,i have quite a good collection but buying books from the USA is not cheap when they are limited editions quite a few of wich i have ,i bought Bullit Trick,Where Everything Ends,i also have Dawn to Dusk on order, A pleasure To Burn,and of Course The Martian Chronicals (complete Edition )living in the UK this cost me £200.00 including postage but from what iv`e heard of the work that is going into it i`m sure it will be worth every penny.I have seven signed books by Bradbury in my collection and i think this pretty good considering where i live you guys in the USA have a much better chance of book signings etc than me ,(now i`m depressed)

Fehrenheit 451 brought tears to my eyes, by far one of my faves.
