Where Everything Ends: The Mystery Novels of Ray Bradbury

Ray Bradbury, Author . Subterranean $50 (784p) ISBN 978-1-59606-217-7

Best known for his SF and fantasy (Fahrenheit 451 ; Something Wicked This Way Comes ), Bradbury also wrote three surreal, noirish mystery novels narrated by a fictionalized alter ego. Those books, which genre devotees will find contain elements comparable to Cornell Woolrich and Joel Townsley Rogers, are reprinted in this omnibus volume, along with a taut, previously unpublished short story. In the first novel, 1985's Death Is a Lonely Business , which is the strongest, a shadowy killer culls out the lost souls of Venice, Calif., while leaving few traces of foul play. (Oct.)
