`I was suddenly struck with the sight of a trail of rich red
vegetation of several miles in the midst of the eternal snows. I
approached with curiosity this oasis in the frozen desert.' An
antique shop owner gets a glimpse of the red planet through an
intriguing artefact. A Martian's wife contemplates the possibility
of life on Earth. A resident of Venus describes his travels across
the two alien planets. From an arid desert to an advanced society
far superior to that of Earth, portrayals of Mars have differed
radically in their attempt to uncover the truth about our
neighbouring planet. Since the 1880s, writers of science fiction
have delighted in speculating on what life on Mars might look like
and what might happen should we make contact with the planet's
inhabitants. These ten short stories from the golden age of science
fiction feature classic SF writers including H.G. Wells, Ray
Bradbury and J.G. Ballard, as well as lesser-known writers from the
genre. They reveal much about how we understand our place in the
universe. Lost Mars: The Golden Age of the Red Planet is the first
volume in the British Library Science Fiction Classics series.
