Gauntlet Press and Borderlands Press are working in a collaboration on a signed limited edition of a Ray Bradbury tribute book of short stories. Ray Bradbury is a storyteller without peer, a poet of the possible, and, indisputably, one of America’s most beloved authors. In a much-celebrated literary career that has spanned seven decades, he has produced an astonishing body of work. In Shadow Show, editors Sam Weller and Mort Castle have collected short stories from 26 of the most celebrated authors today to honor Ray Bradbury and his contribution to the literary canon. Also included is an introduction in personal essay form by Ray Bradbury, “Second Homecoming”, written specifically for Shadow Show.
