By Ray Bradbury

One strange and dark year long ago, Halloween came early. It came on Oct. 24, three hours after midnight, to be precise. The exact same time that Cooger and Dark’s Pandemonium Shadow show rolled into Green Town, Ill.

As the town clock chimes 3:00, James Nightshade and William Halloway leave their beds to watch the train pull in, but there is no one manning the locomotive and no one in the cars behind. Yet the siren song of a calliope beckons all with impossible dreams and youth regained. First lured by its promises, the two boys will soon discover the diabolical truth about the carnival.

“A haunting and heartening piece.” -The Guardian

“Has shades of Mark Twain, but also a touch of Stephen King. It is as if Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer had found themselves lost in a sinister fairground full of supernatural characters.” -Daily Telegraph
