Bullet Trick, by Ray Bradbury 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.

About the Author
Ray Douglas Bradbury (August 22, 1920 – June 5, 2012) was an American author and screenwriter. One of the most celebrated 20th-century American writers, he worked in a variety of modes, including fantasy, science fiction, horror, mystery, and realistic fiction.
Bradbury was mainly known for his novel Fahrenheit 451 (1953) and his short-story collections The Martian Chronicles (1950) and The Illustrated Man (1951). Most of his best known work is speculative fiction, but he also worked in other genres, such as the coming of age novel Dandelion Wine (1957) and the fictionalized memoir Green Shadows, White Whale (1992). He also wrote and consulted on screenplays and television scripts, including Moby Dick and It Came from Outer Space. Many of his works were adapted into television and film productions as well as comic books.
The New York Times called Bradbury "the writer most responsible for bringing modern science fiction into the literary mainstream."
