The Martian Chronicles / The Illustrated Man / The Golden Apples of the Sun by Ray Bradbury
Hardcover. Condition: Fine. 2001. Barnes & Noble Special Editions.
Beautiful leatherbound and illustrated omnibus collects three major works by the legendary Ray Bradbury: The Martian Chronicles, The Illustrated Man, and The Golden Apples of the Sun. It would be nearly impossible to identify three works more central to sci-fi than this trio.
The Martian Chronicles
This story chronicles the exploration and settlement of Mars, the home of indigenous Martians, by Americans leaving a troubled Earth that is eventually devastated by nuclear war.
The Illustrated Man
A collection of short stories and a kaleidoscopic blending of magic, imagination, and truth—as exhilarating as interplanetary travel, as maddening as a walk in a million-year rain, and as comforting as simple, familiar rituals on the last night of the world.
The Golden Apples of the Sun
Inspired by the final words of W.B Yeats' poem "Song of the Wandering Angus"
