The Folio Society Announces Something Wicked This Way Comes By Ray Bradbury

Described by Bradbury himself as the book he loved ‘best of all the things I have written’, Something Wicked This Way Comes is a timeless classic of fantasy horror. 

For this lavishly illustrated collector’s edition, Tim McDonagh has provided seven color illustrations dripping with carnivalesque menace. The eerie inhabitants of Cooger & Dark’s Pandemonium Shadow Show are lit with the gaudy yellow and red lights of the funfair, while Mr Dark leers from the midst of his attractions, the faces of his victims tattooed across his palms. Like Bradbury’s prose, the images in this special Folio edition invite the reader to venture a little deeper into that dark tent, promising wonders and horrors and everything in between. Comedian and actor Frank Skinner lists the book as amongst his favorites, and in his incisive and affectionate introduction written for this edition he examines the many delicious flavors of fear in a novel layered with meaning and portents.

Production Details:

– Bound in blocked cloth
– Typeset in Columbus
– 272 pages Frontispiece and 6 color illustrations, including a double-page spread
– Blocked slipcase
– 9½˝ x 6¼˝
