The October Country
Print
"The October Country is many places: a picturesque Mexican village where death is a tourist attraction; a city beneath the city where drowned lovers are silently reunited; a carnival midway where a tiny man's most cherished fantasy can be fulfilled night after night. Each of the stories in Ray Bradbury's masterful collection is a wonder, imagined by an acclaimed tale-teller writing from a place of shadows. But there is astonishing beauty here as well, born from a prose that enchants and enthralls, that chills like a long-after-midnight wind, that lifts the reader high above a sleeping Earth on strange wings."--P. [4] of cover.

Opinion

From Library Staff

For Bradbury you could replace this selection with 'Something Wicked This Way Comes,' or 'The Illustrated Man,' but this was my first introduction to his darker tales, earlier published as 'Dark Carnival.' How appropriate. A pioneer.

Another great collection of short stories by Bradbury.

Though in some respects I often feel that if you've read one of his stories you've read them all, I also really love the settings, towns and people he brings to life with his writing and for me that is enough to keep loving them.
