Hello, just received this word from Gauntlet Press;
"And in early-December (if not earlier) we'll have word about a new Ray Bradbury project of never-before published material -- a book that will see publication only from Gauntlet."
Anybody out there care to speculate on this forthcoming publication?
December 2007 Update; Gauntlet has announced that the book will be Masks, due in October 2008. Click below for more information from the Gauntlet web site.

I'd prefer not to speculate, because that does little except stir up false hopes and expectations!
However, I would like to imagine that Gauntlet are going to publish some more of Bradbury's screenplays. I would love to see the Moby Dick screenplay published (Ray's final draft, not Huston's shooting script, which had bits written by others). I would also love to see And the Rock Cried Out and Ray's early Martian Chronicles screenplays.
Or how about Ray's original final draft of the Something Wicked screenplay (before Jack Clayton turned it over to John Mortimer)?
I think the Martian Chronicles screenplays are already planned as part of the Hill House edition of Martian Chronicles, are they?
I spoke with Donn Albright just the other day regarding the book that is supposed to be coming out from Gauntlet Press and he wasn't aware of anything. Although there are several projects in the works, there was none that he was aware of regarding Gauntlet.
Donn had spent several days with Ray the week of all the horrible California fires. Although the area Ray lives in was not in any danger, Donn said that there was a lot of smoke.
Yep! Smokey evvverryywhhere!
This is about a block from me, garden area and golf-course. But right in the background is the next neighborhood, plus shopping centers, plus the 5 freeway, plus the Saddleback mountains. For several days you can see NOoothiing!!

Yes indeed, but from what I can gather this edition is long overdue and the publishers have fallen silent about what's happening. (There is another thread somewhere on the board discussing this.)
Gauntlet announced in December 2007 that the book will be Masks, to be released in October 2008. Click the link in my original post on the top of this page for more information from Gauntlet.
Subterranean IS doing Bradbury's version of the script for Moby Dick.

For you well-to-do folks out there, this from Gauntlet:

Both books are housed together in a red slipcase.

From Gauntlet :
Special Slipcase Available for Bradbury's Masks
We are adding a second slipcase for Ray Bradbury's MASKS. Editor Donn Albright had an idea to use original Bradbury line art on the slipcase, just as we did with the signed limited edition of THE DRAGON WHO ATE HIS TAIL. When we have a sample of the slipcase itself (the lettering will be red on a black bonded leather slipcase) we'll post it - the artwork can be seen above. Those ordering will have a choice of ordering a "standard" slipcase at the current price of $25 or the more elaborate one for $35. The best news is for those who preordered: as has been our policy since we launched 17 years ago, customers who preorder are never charged extra if we are forced to raise our prices. Therefore anyone who preordered will get the more elaborate slipcase at no additional cost.
The mask comes off and the cover is revealed!
This just in from Gauntlet:
"Ray Bradbury's Masks is now at the printers. We'll keep you updated on its progress. Please keep in mind that Masks will not be published in any other form other than the signed limited edition. It's not only a great read, but will become a valuable collectible with the Gauntlet edition being the only one available."
A Halloween release is anticipated.
Sounds like yet another treasure that will be beyond my purchasing capacity, alas!
Barnes and Noble Online has a great discount for members and good coupons....you can do quite well if you work it right.
