The Golden Apples of the Sun
And Other StoriesDownloadable Audiobook - 2010
Ray Bradbury is a modern cultural treasure. His disarming simplicity of style underlies a towering body of work unmatched in metaphorical power by any other American storyteller. And here are thirty-two of his most famous tales—-prime examples of the poignant and mysterious poetry that Bradbury uniquely uncovers in the depths of the human soul, the otherwordly portraits that spring from the canvas of one of the century's great men of imagination. From a lonely coastal lighthouse to a sixty-million-year-old safari, from the pouring rain of Venus to the ominous silence of a murder scene, Ray Bradbury is our sure-handed guide not only to surprising and outrageous manifestations of the future but also to the wonders of the present that we could never have imagined on our own.The thirty-two stories included in The Golden Apples of the Sun are "The Fog Horn," "The April Witch," "The Wilderness," "The Fruit at the Bottom of the Bowl," "The Flying Machine," "The Murderer," "The Golden Kite, The Silver Wind," "I See You Never," "Embroidery," "The Big Black and White Game," "The Great Wide World Over There," "Powerhouse," "En La Noche," "Sun and Shadow," "The Meadow," "The Garbage Collector," "The Great Fire," "The Golden Apples of the Sun," "R Is for Rocket," "The End of the Beginning," "The Rocket," "The Rocket Man," "A Sound of Thunder," "The Long Rain," "The Exiles," "Here There Be Tygers," "The Strawberry Window," "The Dragon," "Frost and Fire," "Uncle Einar," "The Time Machine," and "The Sound of Summer Running."
