Description


Mars was a distant shore, and the men spread upon it in waves. Each wave different, and each wave stronger.

Ray Bradbury is a storyteller without peer, a poet of the possible, and, indisputably, one of Americas most beloved authors. The Mars he imagines in these masterful chronicles is a place of hope, dreams, and metaphorof crystal pillars and fossil seaswhere a fine dust settles on the great, empty cities of a silently destroyed civilization. Bradburys The Martian Chronicles is a classic work of twentieth-century literature whose extraordinary power and imagination remain undimmed by times passage. In connected, chronological stories, a true grand master once again enthralls, delights, and challenges us with his vision and heartstarkly exposing in brilliant spacelight our strength, weakness, folly, and poignant humanity in a strange and breathtaking world where humanity does not belong.
