First published by Knopf in 1972, Bradbury's classic Halloween story for readers "11 and up" is now available with substantial cuts to the text restored. This deluxe edition includes a splendid introductory essay by Bradbury scholar Jonathan R. Eller; facsimiles of the 1967 screenplay and the 1971 novel in progress with numerous hand corrections; the 1972 final novel submission with a table of galley changes and extensive notes; and the 1992 teleplay. A special delight are the charming drawings by the author in addition to all the original art by Joseph Mugnaini. This is a beautiful book, a must-have for every Bradbury aficionado. (Nov.)
