What can I possibly say about this book? It's one of the best stories and most well-written books ever. Bradbury, as always, relied heavily on his reader's information to fill in the gaps, and usually, I find that sloppy writing, but with this--with this story--it works; like a haunting nightmare hovering on the edge of your memory. Ah, great stories and fantastic writing make me swoon :D
Edward Gorey illustrated promotional posters, children's books (most notably the dark and epic John Bellairs series), and a miniseries in his lifetime, along with many books (look up the "Amphigorey" books) and individual small drawings completed independently from other projects.
The refreshingly direct poems straddle a peculiar balance between innocent optimism and wistful contemplation. Many of the poems not only have an existential bend, concerned with such contemporary questions of science and philosophy as the nature of nothingness and why the world exists, but they also exude a palpable enchantment with science, astronomy, and cosmology — no doubt due to being written during the golden age of space exploration.
