S is for Space. And for science fiction – spine-tingling, supernatural and sublime. S is for stories from a Star Wilderness that stretches as far as the eye and mind can see and imagine. Creatures who walk from the grave, children who sabotage the earth, Martians and mushrooms, space ships and superbeings – in a spellbinding collection of sixteen masterworks by the author of Long After Midnight, The Illustrated Man, The Martian Chronicles and Dandelion Wine.
