I don’t normally say much about the contents or stories of books I review as I leave that up to the back cover or others to read themselves, but I will say this about The Martian Chronicles or Silver Locusts ; it is a wonderful s and 50s social commentary and as such it is like looking back into history given the dates of when the book is set, most of it is now set mrcianas the past anyway.

The parallel between the fate of Bradbury’s Martians and our Indians is real and historically grounded; you can’t re-tell American frontier history without facing it –and at least here, the Martians die only of unintentionally-borne disease; they aren’t victims of deliberate genocide. What is a hopeless fool? By contrasting the two cultures we see that man will never be fulfilled and complete; he will be harboured by a perpetual longing to have more than he has.

No wonder I marciajas pieces of it packed in my neurons for half a century and more! I want to see the blue-sailed sand ships and the two Martian moons shining on white towers that look like chess pieces.

The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury

These were soon inhabited by the strange native beings, with their caged flowers and birds of flame. For all he knows, he could be the last Martian on Mars.

Their planet is a desert with dead empty seas and ancient cities that look like bone. So in SF, if the concept is unusual, it tends to gather five stars.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys SF, it is not “hard” or military or opera or any of the other genres, it’s just a very good book, well written, enjoy!

Never too Late to Ray Bradbury has written an amazing, lyrical, spooky-as-hell set of pieces that all add up to something much more. Of these chapters, the copyrights of five in my edition are credited to magazine publishers, thus presumably are essentially unedited versions of short stories previously published by Bradbury In contrast, the human house is automated by technology. It is made of separate, cfonicas stand-alone short stories that often read as interludes, some straightforward, some surreal, but all of them quite haunting, memorable, and thought-provoking.
