Surprisingly found this edition in excellent condition in the wild. It's a collection of some of Bradbury's previously published short stories from 1945-1953. Several are notable for their adaptations.
"The Fog Horn" was the basis for the 1953 film "The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms".
"The Pedestrian", "The Fruit at the Bottom of the Bowl", "The Murderer", and "A Sound of Thunder" were all adapted into episodes of "The Ray Bradbury Theater".
Later editions of this book included “Here There Be Tygers". That story is notable because a teleplay of the story was written by Bradbury for an episode of "The Twilight Zone", but Rod Serling and the producers of the show considered it too expensive to film. This led to the end of Bradbury's association with the show. The first episode of "The Twilight Zone", titled "Where Is Everybody?", is actually an "uncredited adaptation"/plagiarization of Bradbury's story “The Silent Towns”. Serling also "adapted" several stories by well known Sci Fi authors of the time, like Henry Kuttner and John Collier, without crediting them.
