Perchance to Dream
Selected StoriesBook - 2015
Take an uneasy step and fall headlong into the world of Charles Beaumont : a world where lions stalk the plains, classic cars rove the streets, and spacecrafts hover just overhead. Here roam musicians, magicians, vampires, aliens, androids, and perhaps even the Devil himself. With dizzying feats of master storytelling and joyously eccentric humor, Beaumont imagined nightmares so vast and varied they burst through the walls of whatever box might contain them. Supernatural, horror, noir, science fiction, fantasy, and more : all were equally at home in his wondrous mind. In Beaumont's hands, nothing is impossible: it all seems plausible, even likely. Contains a selection of Beaumont's finest stories -- including five that he later adapted for Twilight Zone episodes -- with a foreword by Ray Bradbury and an afterword by William Shatner.
