We gave it a B+

Now and Forever offers two long-gestating novellas from the master: a fable about a desert town populated by immortals (”Somewhere a Band Is Playing”) and a futuristic take on Melville’s Moby-Dick set on a starship (”Leviathan ’99”).

For Fans of… The most mystical vignettes tattooed on Bradbury’s Illustrated Man; particularly philosophical episodes of The Twilight Zone.

Bottom LineBradbury’s characters are frustratingly vague, but his prose remains transcendent. B+
