Lucian of Samosata (125–c.180) was a Greek satirist of Syrian or Assyrian extraction, and True History is perhaps his most well-known tale. In this tale, the protagonist visits the Moon, meets extraterrestrial creatures, and takes part in interplanetary warfare. This piece of fantastical fiction parodies many works such as Homer’s Odyssey, and is certainly a contender for the title of earliest science fiction story. Also included in this book is Lucian's second proto-science fiction work Icaro-Menippus.
Also available is True History and Other Early Science Fiction Tales, a collection of the earliest science fiction tales ever!
