A major release from PS and it really is something to behold! R is for Rocket forms the first part of a classy and deserved tribute to Bradbury.
"Seventeen of his most popular science fiction stories, including several that have not appeared before in book form, have been selected by the author for this volume from the best of Bradbury in books and magazines. This is a book for the people of the Space Age, 'by a boy who grew up in a small Illinois town and lived to see the Space Age arrive as he hoped and dreamed it would.'"
This first volume features a forward by Ray Harryhausen and an introduction by Michael Marshall Smith and is released in three states - 500 hardcover copies (unsigned, £25.00), 200 deluxe signed slipcased copies (£75.00)and along with S is for Space and an extra volume of material entitled Forever and the Earth: Yesterday and Tomorrow Tales, it is also released as part of a three volume box set (£295.00) - this last is destined to be one of the most collectable sets of recent years. I wish I had one!!
