    When I think Ray Bradbury, I think pure Americana Like Elvis, Jackie Robinson, Marilyn Monroe that kind of thing He portrays a nostalgia tinged, post war optimism and idealism that s as compelling as it is fantastical, as comforting as it was nonexistent for so many Americans during those years While he does scary as good as anyone, it always seems compartmentalized,

    These 2 novellas are typical Ray Bradbury His language is so evocative it often sounds like poetry I recently heard Neil Gaiman speak and he said the best way to experience Poe was to hear him I ve felt the same way about Bradbury for quite some time.He was one of the few sf authors in our library when I was young, but his tales were too touchy feely for me then Heinlein was

    This book contains two novellas Somewhere a Band Is Playing, and Leviathan 99 For those who may not know, Bradbury did a stint writing screenplays in the soul sapping realm of Hollywood even though the Moby Dick screenplay for and with John Huston was actually written in London You can read a little of how awful that experience was for Bradbury here You can read of the angst and ick

    Two novellas, published late in Bradbury s life, having gestated over decades.Somewhere a Band is PlayingBeautiful.A journalist sniffs a story and jumps off a train into a small town in Arizona, forgotten by the world A story only Bradbury could make work ensues.As an aside, in the Introduction, we learn that the inspiritaion for Nef in this story and obviously for the movie star in Death is a Lonely B

    Somewhere A Band Is Playing My first thoughts are that in content and atmosphere it s somewhere between Something Wicked This Way Comes and Dandelion Wine It is far than that however.Leviathan 99 Ray Bradbury admired Herman Melville and loved Moby Dick and this is his own take on the ideas Melville created Obsession and what it can lead to with a unusual psychological angle.

    Reprinted from the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography cclapcenter.com I am the original author of this essay, as well as the owner of CCLaP it is not being reprinted here illegally I ve mentioned here several times now, how it is that the literature I in particular grew up on was heavily dominated by so called Golden Age science fiction or SF authors like Isaac Asimov, Arthur C Clarke, Robert Heinlein, Frank Herbert,

    To be honest, I was hoping to love this as much as Something Wicked This Way Comes or The October Country Oh well However, I still enjoyed these two vastly different novelettes Bradbury is such a master of whimsical nostalgia that he often has me yearning for a past I never even had.
