|Summary, etc.:|| You could hear the voices murmuring,small and muted, from the crowds thatinhabited his body. A peerless American storyteller, RayBradbury brings wonders alive. TheIllustrated Man is classic Bradbury--eighteen startling visions ofhumankind's destiny, unfolding across acanvas of decorated skin. In this phantasmagoricsideshow, living cities take theirvengeance, technology awakens the mostprimal natural instincts, Martian invasionsare foiled by the good life and the gladhand, and dreams are carried aloft in junkyardrockets. Provocative and powerful,Ray Bradbury's The Illustrated Man is akaleidoscopic blending of magic, imagination,and truth--as exhilarating as interplanetarytravel, as maddening as a walkin a million-year rain, and as comforting assimple, familiar rituals on the last night ofthe world.
