Notes: An advance reading copy (labeled "uncorrected proof"), issued before the regular first edition or the Franklin Library version.
A collection of 21 short stories and an essay.
viii, 261 pages. Bound in glossy wrappers (paper covers) printed with a design similar to the first edition. This advance copy has a simpler dedication to Bradbury collector and friend, Donn Albright. In the printed book, Bradbury added the comic descriptor, "my Golden Retriever". That joke is lacking in the ARC.
Edition + Condition: A very good copy, with a bit of wear at the corners and a dime-sized coffee stain on the edge of the pageblock. Inscribed by Bradbury on the title page to "Tom!"
Publication: New York: Avon, 1996.
