Uncollected Bradbury Volume 3

I live in South Africa, so if there are both British and American versions of a book, we nearly always get the British one.

So for decades, I had The Silver Locusts but had never seen a copy of The Martian Chronicles.

If you have the US editions of The Martian Chronicles plus The Illustrated Man, then you'll find nothing new in The Silver Locusts.

Depending on the length of the book, I may also include these stories collected in uncommon editions:

Referent (collected in The Day It Rained Forever)

Thank you for responding! These collections are for my own enjoyment (it is my desire to have a complete collection that drives me). I would love to share these volumes and have discussed the ethics of sharing published stories on this board and with other collectors. Even though these are out of print I don't believe everyone feels the same way I do. I also think Ray is looking down and wondering why everyone isn't reading his stories for free. Regardless, I have not made these books available out of respect for Ray, his estate, and the many collectors that I have met over the years who have suggested that I not share.

I will, however, trade stories. If you have something I need and you are looking for stories for your own collection hit me up!

Let me know what I have that you still don't, or, if not sure, let me know what you still need.

As I said, some are such poor prints off microfilm copies I may have to type them!

It doesn't matter how anyone else feels; it only matters how you feel. If you own these stories and wish to share them with others, that is your right so to do. Ethics do not come into play here; it's no different from lending a book to a friend to read, and haven't we all done that?

If collectors have suggested you not share, then they are only interested in collecting, and not actually reading, and they are approaching this from a mean-spirited perspective.

No one is profiting off this but some fans are sharing materials with each other.

Update... I have been a little discouraged as my Blurb files have all vanished from my computer. That means the template I used for the first to editions is gone.

The artwork, font, formatting is all gone... so the third book won't really match the first two. That is not making me very happy.

The book hasn't been compiled because I am not looking forward to starting over.
