9781523211906: The Martian Anthology
View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

Even in ancient times people stared off into space and watched that red dot in the sky and wondered what was going on up there on Mars. It spurs both scientific inquiry and the imagination. Add two moons with some interesting properties of their own and you have a wonderful place for all kinds of stories of the imagination. Here a colonist finds herself marooned far from home, a rover doesn’t always obey its handlers, Martian invaders struggle with the religious practices of the conquered, working on Mars proves more challenging that anyone could have expected, Martian emissaries express their concerns about their neighbor, a Martian spaceship captain wants his portrait painted and plenty more stories about earth’s neighbor and those who might inhabit it.

Review:


Mars has always been my favorite fictional planet, everything from Edgar Rice Burroughs and H.G. Wells to Kim Stanley Robinson and Greg Bear. This is a collection of short stories set on that world or thereabouts ranging from realistic to pastiches of various classic SF stories. The contributors include Cary Osborne and David Lee Summers, but most of the rest of the names were new to me.  It's a good buy for the price. 2/1/16

Don D'Ammassa, Critical Mass
