There are numerous small closed and open tears in the edges, and there are 5 pieces of tape on the verso of the jacket. Price-clipped.
Drawings by Joe Mugnaini. Forty-four stories in all, complete in one volume. Renown science fiction and fantasy bibliographer, E. F. Bleiler states in Science Fiction Writers, "One name more than any other seems to typify science fiction for the American public- Ray Bradbury... his stories, novels, poems, plays, motion-picture scripts, public lectures, book reviews, and radio and television interviews have kept him in the forefront not only of science fiction writers but of American authors in general."
