Meet the strangest family - the Elliott's, which includes
mind-readers, vampires and many other weird individuals. In
a strange old house they gradually come together, mixing their
arcane skills and lifestyles, falling in and out of love and
changing the world around them forever...
Bradbury's From the Dust Returned hides behind the
promise of a new novel from the long silent author. It is,
in reality, a collection of already published work dating
back to 1945. But what Bradbury has done is update his work
and provide a common linking thread between some of the old
stories as well as adding a few more rather disappointing
far the best story here is On the Orient North, which
was originally published in 1988. This follows an old man,
who is in fact a ghost, who is slowly fading away because
modern society no longer believes in ghosts. He is urgently
trying to get to England - where there is a ghost in every
old house - where he can live happily.
majority of the newly printed works are not really that impressive
- not bad, but certainly not up to Bradbury's previous work.
you are a Bradbury fan then you will have to buy this to complete
your collection. However, if you were amazed by his past glories
- including The Illustrated Man, Long After Midnight, Something
Wicked This Way Comes or even Fahrenheit 451 -
then you may be disappointed with this.
