Bradbury Beyond Apollo

Jonathan R. Eller

University of Illinois Press

Bradbury had little control over the texts of his early detective stories, but he was able to add a contextual introduction when they appeared in the Dell paperback collection, A Memory of Murder. Chapter 20 describes how this frustration was counterbalanced by Quest, a short film adapted from Bradbury’s “The Creatures That Time Forgot” (better known as “Frost and Fire”), a 1946 story inspired by a thought experiment posed by Nobel laureate Henri Bergson. Quest was filmed and produced by famed Hollywood title artist Saul Bass in 1983, and won prizes from the Moscow Film Festival, the Chicago International Film Festival, and the Aspen Film Festival.
