Virtually everyone has read Ray Bradbury's classic tale, "Skeleton", of a man who becomes aware of the bony framework housed inside his skin. What most readers don't realize is that this famous tale is Bradbury's second take on the idea. For the first time in over 60 years, the other tale, also titled "Skeleton", will see print alongside its classic counterpart, featuring a number of vignettes and text ornaments by Dave McKean.
Dave McKean has gone above and beyond for this chapbook. Instead of the four or five illustrations agreed upon, he has turned in more than twenty, and helmed the design of the chapbook himself.
