9780062079930 Soar above the fossil seas and crystal pillars of a deadworld in the pages of Ray Bradburyâ€™s The Martian Chronicles. A milestoneof American literature, Bradburyâ€™s classic collection of interconnectedvignettes about life on the red planet diverges from the War of the Worlds theme,in which humanity must defend its shores against its neighbors, for in Bradburyâ€™sprismatic vision, humanity is the conqueror, colonizing Mars to escape an Earthdevastated by atomic war and environmental catastrophe. Bradburyâ€™s TheMartian Chronicles is a must-read for any fan of science fiction orfantasy, a crucial precursor to films like Avatar and Alien andbooks like Kim Stanley Robinsonâ€™s Red Mars and Dan Simmonsâ€™ Hyperion,and a haunting prophesy of humanityâ€™s destiny to bring our old dreams andfollies along with us wherever we may venture forth.
