The Illustrated Man

by Ray Bradbury
Release date: 1951
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction, short stories

International Fantasy Award nominee 1952.

Here are eighteen startling visions of humankind's destiny, unfolding across a canvas of decorated skin - visions as keen as the tattooist's needle and as colorful as the inks that indelibly stain the body. The images, ideas, sounds and scents that abound in this phantasmagoric sideshow are provocative and powerful: the mournful cries of celestial travelers cast out cruelly into a vast, empty space of stars and blackness... the sight of gray dust selling over a forgotten outpost on a road that leads nowhere... the pungent odor of Jupiter on a returning father's clothing.
