The volume introduction describes how Bradbury Beyond Apollo takes up the threads of the author’s life from Becoming Ray Bradbury and Ray Bradbury Unbound, seeking to follow the patterns he wove through the final four decades of his career. The introduction situates Bradbury Beyond Apollo in the context of his earlier works, which were rapidly becoming contemporary classics, and maintains that his later-life works of significance, including his essays and reviews, were sustained and crafted within the greater fabric of his deepening engagement with the American space program. Along with the earlier volumes, Bradbury Beyond Apollo forms a biography of the mind, recording life as Bradbury experienced it, and not necessarily how the public saw it.

Keywords:   Ray Bradbury, American space program, Becoming Ray Bradbury, Ray Bradbury Unbound
