      Mars has long inspired wild flights of imagination, as well as intense scientific interest. Long ago, when only the Moon and the stars lit up the night sky, people watched as this blood-red dot looped its way across the sky. Some assigned a rather war-like "meme" to it (for the color of blood), and in some cultures, Mars signified the god of war.   TIME’S #1 FICTION TITLE OF THE YEAR • NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOK OF FINALIST for the MAN BOOKER PRIZE and the NATIONAL BOOK CRITICS CIRCLE AWARD LONGLISTED for the ANDREW CARNEGIE MEDAL An instant New York Times bestseller from two-time National Book Award finalist Rachel Kushner, The Mars Room earned tweets from Margaret /5(9).

    John Carter of Mars series is written by the author Edgar Rice Burroughs, who started writing about the adventure on Mars in the year Although everyone knows that life on Mars is not possible, but Burroughs’ writing is so natural and real that it makes people wonder sometimes. Burroughs’s A Princess of Mars. Bradbury’s The Martian Chronicles. Heinlein’s Red Planet. These and so many more inspired generations of readers with a sense that science fiction’s greatest wonders did not necessarily lie far in the future or light-years across the galaxy but were to be found right now on a nearby world tantalizingly.

    Tom is terrified to do so, and when the three arrive, Tom immediately disappears. A family with a lost daughter caught sight of him, and he morphed into their lost daughter. LaFarge goes to look for him, and soon many people are chasing the Martian through town, seeing in him whoever is most on their minds. GAME OF THRONES mastermind Martin joins with award-winning editor Dozois to curate this collection of 15 all-original sf stories that hark back to the genre’s golden age, when works like Ray Bradbury’s THE MARTIAN CHRONICLES embodied a fascination with the interplanetary colonization and particularly the idea of ancient, doomed life on the red planet.
