Shadow Show: All-New Stories in Celebration of Ray Bradbury

Shadow Show: All-New Stories in Celebration of Ray Bradbury - Margaret Atwood, Neil Gaiman, Jacquelyn Mitchard, David Morrell, Harlan Ellison, Ray Bradbury, Julia Keller, Bayo Ojikutu, Charles Yu, Jay Bonansinga, Lee Martin, John Maclay, Joe Hill, Bonnie Jo Campbell, John McNally, Dan Chaon, Kelly Link, Ramsey Campbell, Thomas F. Mon For reasons I can’t explain, I don’t read many short stories. Occasionally, a book comes along that makes me question my novel-centric reading choices. Shadow Show is one of those books.It is definitely a fantastic (in both senses of this word) collection. First, you have authors like Margaret Atwood, Dave Eggers, Robert McCammon, Kelly Link, and oh, Harlan Ellison, all writing pieces inspired by Ray Bradbury. Second, this is not something hastily put together after Bradbury’s death — no, the anthology was conceived before that, and it even includes the introduction by ‘The Teller of Tales’ himself.See the rest and the list of my favorites here:
