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 America`s most beloved authors. The Mars he imagines in these masterful chronicles is a place of hope, dreams, and metaphor of crystal pillars and fossil seas where a fine dust settles on the great, empty cities of a silently destroyed civilization. Bradbury`s The Martian Chronicles is a classic work of twentieth-century literature whose extraordinary power and imagination remain undimmed by time`s passage. In connected, chronological stories, a true grand master once again enthralls, delights, and challenges us with his vision and heart, starkly exposing in brilliant spacelight our strength, weakness, folly, and poignant humanity in a strange and breathtaking world where humanity does not belong.
