2 Bradbury, Ray Edited By William F. Touponce & Jonathan R. Eller The Collected Stories of Ray Bradbury: A Critical Edition Volume I 1938-1943
Kent The Kent State University Press 2010 1606350714 / 9781606350713 First Edition/First Printing Hardcover Fine Fine Book 
A square solid tight clean as new unread copy. Collects thirty-two stories, including nine amateur publications, thirteen of which are published here for the first time in a collection of Bradbury's fiction. " In the past, collections of Bradbury's works have juxtaposed stories with no indication as to the different time periods in which they were written. Even the mid- and late- career collections that Bradbury himself compiled contained stories that were written much earlier- a situation that has given rise to misconceptions about the origins of the stories themselves. In this new edition, editors William F. Touponce and Jonathan R. Eller present for the first time the stories of Ray Bradbury in the order in which they were written. Moreover, they use texts that reflect Bradbury's earliest settled intention for each tale. By examining his relationships with his agent, editor, and publisher, Touponce and Eller's textual commentaries document the transformation of the stories -- and Bradbury's creative understanding of genre fiction -- from their original forms to the versions known and loved today. Volume I covers the years 1938 to 1943 and contains thirteen stories that have never appeared in a Bradbury collection. For those that were previously published, the original serial forms recovered in this volume differ in significant ways from the versions that Bradbury popularized over the ensuing years. By documenting the ways the stories evolved over time, Touponce and Eller unveil significant new information about Bradbury's development as a master of short fiction. Each volume in the proposed three-volume edition includes a general introduction, chronology, summary of unpublished stories, textual commentary for each story, textual apparatus, and chronological catalogue." - publisher's online blurb.
