Killer, Come Back To Me Summary

Killer, Come Back To Me by Ray Bradbury

Celebrating Ray Bradbury's centenary, this collection commemorates his finest crime stories - tales as strange and wonderful as his signature fantasy.

Time travellers...dark carnivals...living automata...and detectives? Honouring the 100th birthday of Ray Bradbury, renowned author of Fahrenheit 451, this new, definitive collection of the master's less well-known crime fiction features classic stories and rare gems, a number of which became episodes of Alfred Hitchcock Presents and The Ray Bradbury Theater, including the tale Bradbury called 'one of the best stories in any field that I have ever written'.

Is it murder to destroy a robot if it looks and speaks and thinks and feels like a human being? Can a ventriloquist be incriminated by the testimony of his own dummy? Can a time traveller prevent his younger self from killing the woman they both loved? And can the survivor of a pair of Siamese twins investigate his own brother's murder? No other writer has ever rivalled the imagination and narrative gifts of Ray Bradbury, and the 20 unforgettable stories in this collection demonstrate this singular writer's extraordinary range, influence and emotional power.

Killer, Come Back To Me Reviews

'As influenced by George Bernard Shaw and William Shakespeare as he was by Jules Verne and Edgar Rice Burroughs, Bradbury was an expert of the taut tale, the last-sentence twist. And he was more celebrated for short fiction than his longer works.'-Los Angeles Times

'Ray Bradbury was the 20th-century American short-story writer par excellence.'-Guardian
