Now and Forever

Somewhere a Band Is Playing & Leviathan '99

By Ray Bradbury
Narrated by Paul Hecht / 4 hours 46 minutes
Bookseller recommendation

Now and Forever

“This book consists of two novellas: Somewhere a Band is Playing & Leviathan ‘99. As usual Bradbury delivers great stories and wonderful storytelling. You really can’t go wrong with Bradbury. The first novella is about a town filled with immortal writers who try to remain undetected by the world at large, living a simple and peaceful existence until an outsider brings them the news that the town will be bulldozed to build a new highway. As with a lot of Bradbury’s work the story is nostalgic for a rapidly disappearing past. The second novella, Leviathan ’99, is essentially a science fiction retelling of Moby Dick. Instead of the ocean the story is set in space and the whale is replaced with the largest comet ever discovered. Both are highly enjoyable tales and I recommend them along with the rest of Bradbury’s catalog.”

A journalist bearing terrible news leaps from a still-moving train into a small town of wonderful, impossible secrets . . .

The doomed crew of a starship follows their blind, mad captain on a quest into deepest space to joust with destiny, eternity, and God Himself . . .

Now and Forever is a bold new work from an incomparable artist whose stories have reshaped America's literary landscape. Two bewitching novellas—each distinctly different, yet uniquely Bradbury—demonstrate the breathtaking range of his undimmed talent and the irrepressible vitality of the mind, spirit, and heart of America's preeminent storyteller.
