Few American novels written this century have endured in th heart and mind as has this one-Ray Bradbury's incomparable masterwork of the dark fantastic. A carnival rolls in sometime after the midnight hour on a chill Midwestern October eve, ushering in Halloween a week before its time. A calliope's shrill siren song beckons to all with a seductive promise of dreams and youth regained. In this season of dying, Cooger & Dark's Pandemonium Shadow Show has come to Green Town, Illinois, to destroy every life touched by its strange and sinister mystery. And two inquisitive boys standing precariously on the brink of adulthood will soon discover the secret of the satanic raree-show's smoke, mazes, and mirrors, as they learn all too well the heavy cost of wishes -- and the stuff of nightmare.


  • Perfect autumn book!

    This is the perfect book to cozy up to in the autumn season. The adventures of two 13 year-old boys is charming and exciting.

    This is a wonderful old, repeat old, classic. For iBooks to say it was published in 2013 is an outright lie. If they have any integrity, they will say published on iBooks in 2013. Younger readers aren't likely to recognize the difference. Shame on you, iBooks!
