Summer Morning, Summer Night was to be Ray Bradbury's first true novel, a highly personal look back at the rapidly disappearing small-town world of the American heartland. But the transition from a master storyteller to mature novelist is a complex process, and Bradbury was constantly distracted by other major projects and opportunities. Finally, in the winter of 1955-56, after consulting with his Doubleday editor, Bradbury indefinitely deferred publication of the novel by extracting seventeen stories and bridging them (along with three other Green Town tales) into his 1957 masterpiece, Dandelion Wine. That ever-popular book, along with Bradbury's 2006 publication of the original novel, now titled Farewell Summer (click HERE to buy that title), finally allows us to see what stories and episodes Bradbury decided to retain as he created two books out of one. However, one crucial part of the creative record has never been collected -- the stories, scenes and fragments that Bradbury moved out of both books. The most significant of these deleted titles are gathered for the first time in this new collection of Green Town stories.
