Bradbury's introduction, included in this edition, explains how these short stories came to be knitted together to form The Martian Chronicles, a future history of Mars. Written in the 1940s, and influenced by Edgar Rice Burroughs's works and Percival Lowell's canals of Mars, this is not hard science fiction, but rather lovingly, descriptive prose from an earlier age. A classic.
