Bullet Trick is a signed limited edition of never-before published material. It contains five teleplays (original stories that were not based on previously written stories), written by Ray Bradbury, that appeared on TV from 1955 through 1963. With the exception of the 1959 Steve Canyon production, the other four teleplays deal with fear and paranoia.
A feeling of dark gloom and hopelessness hovers over “The Jail” and “Dial Double Zero.” “Bullet Trick” deals with the age old problem of an unhappy marriage and infidelity. “Tunnel to Yesterday” deals with the paranoia and fear of a war long gone. Bradbury wrote three scripts for the original Twilight Zone, adapted from previously published Bradbury yarns. Only “I Sing the Body Electric” (appearing only in the lettered edition) was actually produced for the original Twilight Zone series. “Here There Be Tygers” and “A Miracle of Rare Devices” were never produced.
Finally, the book contains two prose adaptations Bradbury wrote after he wrote the screenplays. Both “Bullet Trick” and “Hand In Glove” (“The Jail”) are far different than the teleplays.
