Futuria Fantasia

by Bradbury, Ray

Condition: Fine/Fine


Limited first hardcover edition. Fine book and jacket housed in a Fine slipcase. Dust jacket art by Hannes Bok. Book is bound in black boards. End papers show a collage of sepia-toned photos from the period when 'Furturia Fantasia" made its first appearance. This is number 203 of 300 such copies. This volume contains Bradbury's first works that were printed in the first volume, four issues, of "Futuria Fantasia" a slim, pseudo-magazine that Bradbury, working with Forrest J. Ackerman and collaborating with artist Hannes Bok (1914 - 1964), edited and published himself. A hundred copies, at 10 cents, of each issue were produced during 1939 and 1940. These are reproduced in exact facsimile here, in the original green ink, with many illustrations by Bok. The issues of "Futuria Fantasia" contained many contributions by Ackerman and Bradbury using various pseudonyms. Other contributors included: Robert Heinlein (using the pseudonym Lyle Monroe) this is his fourth published story, Damon Knight, Henry Kuttner, and Bruce Yerke. The book consists of a preface by Bradbury, an interview of Bradbury by Craig Graham., and then the issues of the magazine. Thanks to Graham for saving them from being lost forever! A very interesting glimpse into the past and Bradbury's formative years after High School; too poor to attend college, he hung around the Clifton's Cafeteria Science Fiction Club, thank heavens. Signed on the limitation page by Bradbury and by Publishers Craig and Patti Graham – all have signed in green. A note from the publisher on the final page explains some details of the production
