I read THE VINTAGE BRADBURY when it was first published. In fact, back then, Vintage Press was one of my favorite publishers. I was always carrying a Vintage paperback around with me. THE VINTAGE BRADBURY would be an ideal introduction for someone unfamiliar with Bradbury's work.

And the best news, George, is that Vintage reissued it in 1990, and it's still in print and available via Amazon and other booksellers. It *is* a good introduction and also gives a bit of insight to the younger Bradbury and what he considered his best work (up to that time).

Todd Mason

Beverly, Bradbury's first professionally published story appeared in 1940, so his career had begun 25 years before the first publication of THE VINTAGE...DARK CARNIVAL, his first book first appeared in 1947.
