Along with THE MARTIAN CHRONICLES, this is Ray Bradbury's most celebrated an-thology of short stories. Together they helped lift science fiction out of the pulps and into the mainstream of American literature. The eerie framing device sets the mood for the entire set--an unnamed narrator comes across a carnival performer whose living tattoos conjure "true" tales of future events. Paul Hecht has a rich, mature, expressive, virile instrument, while his careful articulation and Apollonian approach give the listener that warm, intimate feeling of being personally read to. In addition, he has a fine handle on Bradbury's mood, atmosphere, tone and characterizations. His classic radio sound adds an appropriate period flavor to this volume, originally published in 1951.
