1st printing w/ 60c cover price and rare carnival art on back cover. 

Vintage paperback.   Copy is tight, clean and seemingly unread! 

Front cover has some discoloration [color drain and some faint markings]-- it does  blend in with the awesomely chaotic cover art, so not too distracting. 

Contents read like new w/ some tanning to pages. 

One of Ray Bradbury’s best-known and most popular novels, Something Wicked This Way Comes, now featuring a new introduction and material about its longstanding influence on culture and genre.

For those who still dream and remember, for those yet to experience the hypnotic power of its dark poetry, step inside. The show is about to begin. Cooger & Dark’s Pandemonium Shadow Show has come to Green Town, Illinois, to destroy every life touched by its strange and sinister mystery. The carnival rolls in sometime after midnight, ushering in Halloween a week early. A calliope’s shrill siren song beckons to all with a seductive promise of dreams and youth regained. Two boys will discover the secret of its smoke, mazes, and mirrors; two friends who will soon know all too well the heavy cost of wishes…and the stuff of nightmares.
