A Memory Of Murder

by Bradbury, Ray

A Memory of Murder (1984) is a collection of fifteen short stories by Ray Bradbury. They were originally published from 1944 to 1948 in pulp magazines owned by Popular Publications, Inc. that specialized in detective and crime fiction. Bradbury tried his hand in the genre but found the results unsatisfactory. He referred to the stories as "the walking wounded" in his introduction to A Memory of Murder.

Description:
First edition paperback original, a Very Good copy with spine creasing, edgewear, slight age darkening and foxing to gutters. You wouldn't think a Bradbury PBOs from the 80s would be hard to find, but he was reportedly not thrilled with these 1940s pulp crime stories, and never let it be reprinted.
