common thread a vivid and profound understanding of the vast set of emotions that bring strength and mythic resonance to our frail species Ray Bradbury characters may find themselves anywhere and anywhen A horrified mother may give birth to a strange blue pyramid A man may take Abraham Lincoln out of the grave and meet another who puts him back An amazing Electrical Grandmother may come to live with a grieving family An old parrot may have learned over long evenings to imitate the voice of Ernest Hemingway and became the last link to the great man A priest on Mars may confront his fondest dream to meet the Messiah Each of these magnificent creations has something to tell us about our humanity and all of their fates await you in this new trade edition of twenty eight classic
