The Martian Chroniclesby Ray Bradbury
Synopses & Reviews
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. Here are the captivating chronicles of man and Mars — the modern classic by the peerless Ray Bradbury.
"Bradbury is an authentic original." Time Magazine
A classic work of twentieth-century literature whose extraordinary power and imagination remain undimmed by time's passage. In connected, chronological stories, Bradbury enthralls, delights and challenges readers with his vision and his heart — taking them to a strange, breathtaking world where humanity does not belong.
