    Folio Society Something Wicked this Way Comes $64.95

    Got it!!

    Described by Bradbury himself as the book he loved ‘best of all the things I have written’, Something Wicked This Way Comes is a timeless classic of fantasy horror. For this lavishly illustrated collector’s edition, Tim McDonagh has provided seven colour illustrations dripping with carnivalesque menace. The eerie inhabitants of Cooger & Dark’s Pandemonium Shadow Show are lit with the gaudy yellow and red lights of the funfair, while Mr Dark leers from the midst of his attractions, the faces of his victims tattooed across his palms. Like Bradbury’s prose, the images in this special Folio edition invite the reader to venture a little deeper into that dark tent, promising wonders and horrors and everything in between. Comedian and actor Frank Skinner lists the book as amongst his favourites, and in his incisive and affectionate introduction written for this edition he examines the many delicious flavours of fear in a novel layered with meaning and portents.

    Wow, that's nice...if I didn't already have the signed Gaunlet HC (or had shelf room for duplicates! ), I'd be all over that beauty.

    Here's the link for those who want to order or want to see the gorgeous full-color interior illustrations:

    Between this, the Gauntlet edition, PS Pub's recent edition, and Centipede's forthcoming edition, I'm so pleased to see this book continue to get love via these lavish productions...it's a novel that well deserves it.

    I bought the hell out of it. But I didn't see mention of when this book will be shipping. Is it in stock?
