All-New Stories in Celebration of Ray Bradbury
Edited by Sam Weller & Mort Castle
Under a joint imprint, Gauntlet Press and Borderlands Press will publish a limited, signed, and numbered edition of SHADOW SHOW, a tribute anthology to celebrate the career of Ray Bradbury.

Also included is an Introduction in the form of a personal essay “Second Homecoming,” written by Ray Bradbury, specifically for the book.
“Great new tales of imagination in the Bradbury tradition.” — Hugh Hefner
“There is no more fitting tribute to my friend Ray Bradbury than a compilation of wonderful short stories! Ray is a champion of libraries and one of America’s most inventive teller of tales. I cherish many happy times engrossed in his stories. This anthology reflects the high imagination, visionary ideas, and fantastic writing that Ray is loved and known for around the world.” — Laura Bush
“Ray Bradbury is without a doubt, one of this, or any century’s greatest and most imaginative writers. SHADOW SHOW, a book of truly great stories, is the perfect tribute to America’s master storyteller.” — Stan Lee
“SHADOW SHOW is a treasure-trove for Ray Bradbury enthusiasts as for all readers who are drawn to richly imaginative, deftly plotted, startlingly original and unsettling short fiction. No one who knows their darkly fantastic fiction would be surprised to see such renowned names here as Ramsey Campbell, Harlan Ellison, Margaret Atwood, Neil Gaiman, Audrey Niffenegger, and Tom Monteleone; but it is something of a surprise to see Dave Eggers, Jacquelyn Mitchard, Dan Chaon, and Bonnie Jo Campell in this gathering, all of them Ray Bradbury admirers, and all so gifted. The tributes to Ray Bradbury that follow each of the stories are particularly interesting, often heartwarming and inspiring.” — Joyce Carol Oates
