About
Ray Bradbury, America's most beloved storyteller, has spent a lifetime carrying readers to exhilarating and dangerous places, from dark street comers in unfamiliar cities and towns to the edge of the universe. "Leviathan '99" transplants the themes and story line of Melville's classic to outer space. Ishmael here is astronaut Ishmael Hunnicut Jones, Queequeg a towering alien named Quell, and Ahab a maniacal, blind starship captain. Instead of a white whale, the captain's nemesis is a planet-devouring comet known as Leviathan.

“Leviathan ’99,” which Mr. Bradbury describes as “ ‘Moby-Dick’ in outer space,” was started in the ’50s, and though he has revisited it sporadically over the years, it was originally intended as a radio script for Norman Corwin. It follows Ishmael Jones as he accompanies a blind, maniacal captain of the “largest interstellar spaceship ever built,” tracking a great white comet. - New York Times
