    Leaving behind a world on the brink of destruction, man came to the red planet and found the Martians waiting, dreamlike. Seeking the promise of a new beginning, man brought with him his oldest fears and his deepest desires. Man conquered Mars - and in that instant, Mars conquered him. The strange new world with its ancient, dying race and vast, red-gold deserts cast a spell on him, settled into his dreams, and changed him forever.

    David says: "The ghosts of Mars and Bradbury"
    "Classic from a golden age of Sci Fi"

    Story

    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.
