$22.99 – Paperback / HarperCollins Publishers / United Kingdom
A strange and wonderful tale of man′s experiences on Mars‚ filled with intense images and astonishing visions. Now part of the Voyager Classics collection.
The Martian Chronicles tells the story of humanity′s repeated attempts to colonise the red planet. The first men were few. Most succumbed to a disease they called the Great Loneliness when they saw their home planet dwindle to the size of a fist. They felt they had never been born. Those few that survived found no welcome on Mars. The shape−changing Martians thought they were native lunatics and duly locked them up.
But more and more rockets arrived from Earth‚ piercing the hallucinations projected by the Martians. People brought their old prejudices with them − and their desires and fantasies‚ and tainted dreams. These were soon inhabited by the strange native beings‚ with their caged flowers and birds of flame.
