From official release/information:
From back of book: Begun more than 40 years ago as a gift to Katharine Hepburn, "Somewhere a Band Is Playing" is classic Bradbury fantasy, full of romance, nostalgia, and magic, in which a young writer steps off a train at a deserted station, only to discover that the residents of the town are not what they seem.
A science-fictional homage to Herman Melville's Moby-Dick, "Leviathan '99" is trademark Bradbury science fiction full of insight, pathos, and intelligence, in which the young Ishmael Hunnicut Jones prepares to go on his first interstellar hunt on a starship commanded by an old blink captain, and crewed by Quell, a mysterious mind-reading alien being.
