Something Wicked This Way Comes is a 1962 dark fantasy novel by Ray Bradbury. It is about two 13-year-old best friends, Jim Nightshade and William Halloway, and their nightmarish experience with a travelling carnival that comes to their Midwestern town one October, and how the boys learn about combatting fear. The carnival`s leader is the mysterious ”Mr. Dark”, who seemingly wields the power to grant the citizenry`s secret desires. In reality, Dark is a malevolent being who, like the carnival, lives off the life force of those they enslave. Mr. Dark`s presence is countered by that of Will`s father, Charles Halloway, who harbors his own secret fear of growing older because he feels he is too old to be Will`s dad.
The novel combines elements of fantasy and horror, analyzing the conflicting natures of good and evil which exist within all individuals. Unlike many of Bradbury`s other novel-length works, such as Dandelion Wine and The Martian Chronicles, which are fix-ups, Something Wicked This Way Comes is a single, full-length narrative.
