BRADBURY, RAY. MATCH TO FLAME: The Fictional Paths fo Fahrenheit-451.

Overview: Ray Bradbury didnt sit down one day and decide to write his classic novel Fahrenheit-451. As with Something Wicked This Way Comes Bradburys tale of censorship had its roots years earlier—in at least 9 short stories or novellas. While published in 1953 the genesis of F-451 can be traced back to 1944. Over the next several years Bradbury tinkered with the idea in a number of short stories—a few that have been collected a number of times, some that appeared just once and others that have remained unpublished . . . Until now. Match to Flame: The Fictional Paths to Fahrenheit-451 traces the roots of F-451 in Bradburys earlier fiction. Edited by Donn Albright, the book is a must for those who have marveled at F-451. The centerpiece of the book, is of course, The Fireman a novella published in Galaxy ‘51 (1951).The dustjacket art and design is by Editor Donn Albright. Signed by Bradbury, this is a new classic for both scholars looking into the history of F-451, collectors interested in obscure and unpublished Bradbury material that will not see publication anywhere else, and readers of great fiction.
