I’m making something of a side gig doing introductions to new editions of classic works of science fiction, because I’ve signed on to write an introduction for The Martian Chronicles: the Definitive Edition, a massively expanded new edition of the Ray Bradbury magnum opus from Subterranean Press and PS Publishing. In addition to the original book (to which I will be writing the introduction), this edition collects up an additional 22 previously uncollected or unpublished Martian stories from Bradbury (this section will have an intro from Joe Hill), as well as two previously unpublished screenplays of the work (one from 1964 and one from 1997), an essay from Bradbury himself on the work, and newly commissioned art from Edward Miller. Good stuff.
This is a signed, limited edition, and as you might expect it’s not cheap — we’re talking $300 here, and $900 for the lettered, traycased edition — but if you’re a Bradbury fan, it’s going to be worth it. Also, at this very moment, there’s a limited-time special price discount of $225 going on. So you have that going for you. The printing is already halfway sold through, however, so if you want it, get on it. I’m looking forward to a copy of my very own, I’ll tell you that much.
