I am working on the third edition of my Blurb book series, "Uncollected Bradbury"
Because "The Collected Stories of Ray Bradbury: A Critical Edition" included so many of the stories I have spent years tracking down, my third book is looking quite anemic. I only have the following stories:
The Blue Flag of John Folk
Lorelei of the Red Mist
To help fill this book I am including stories that can be found in uncommon or rare publications.
But I wanted to reach out to this community so see if any of you would be willing to share a photo or scan of these stories:
from The Cat's Pajamas: Stories + 5:
Austin and Justin: the Twins of Time
Remembrance at Gettysburg
from Dawn to Dusk:
The Tattooed Man
You Must Never Touch the Cage
from The Martian Chronicles: The Complete Edition:
Dead of Summer
They All Had Grandfathers
I have photocopies of rare stories that have yet to be collected in my previous 2 books that I would be happy to mail to you in recompense.
My books are for my own personal use. It is a lifelong interest and love of Bradbury that drives me to collect these uncommon treasures.
Thanks for reading!
Well... I had to try. I suppose I would protect these stories like Fort Knox too.
Do you both have "And Watch the Fountains," "Lazarus Come Forth," "Rocket Skin," and "Payment in Full"?
Hi Phil - thank you for responding and for your willingness to share! I understand the lack of time... feel free to reach out here or to firstname.lastname@example.org whenever and if-ever time gives a bit back! Also, let me know if you are interested in reading something you "might" not have!
Hey dandelion... I do have these stories. I have the original Pulp magazine publications with the exception of "Rocket Skin" - I have this story in an anthology by William F. Nolan titled Man Against Tomorrow.
OK, are you ready for this? The list of stories for vol 2, covering just ONE YEAR of Ray's output as a writer (1943-44)...
I had quite a bit to say about it, so I put it on my blog. Here's a direct link:
Thanks a lot! Could you tell us, which stories were written in 1943 and which ones in 1944?
And there it is: "Autopsy" or "Killer, Come Back to Me!" This sneaky story has managed to elude me for some time.
Besides the uncommon titles, reading the original manuscript versions of these stories is always a thrill.
I can only imagine the time it takes to compile a volume of this quality. September, 2014 is a few months away but I am already very excited about this edition!!
Thank you so much for posting this list!
Hi Mikhail. For that level of detail, you will have to read the book I'm afraid!
Definitely! Meanwhile I'll re-read Volume 1.
If you read it slowly and carefully you MIGHT finish by September, 2014... ha ha!!!
I found an unauthorised copy of "Austen and Jausten: The Twins of Time" on the internet. Just google it.
Just one of many RB stories in circulation without permission.
