    Lost Mars: The Golden Age of The Red Planet

    An antique shop owner gets a glimpse of the red planet through an intriguing artefact. A Martian’s wife contemplates the possibility of life on Earth.

    A resident of Venus describes his travels across the two alien planets. Since the 1880s, writers of science fiction have delighted in speculating on what life on Mars might look like and what might happen should we make contact with the planet’s inhabitants.

    These ten short stories from the golden age of science fiction feature classic SF writers including H. G. Wells, Ray Bradbury, and J. G. Ballard, as well as lesser-known writers from the genre. They reveal much about how we understand our place in the universe. Lost Mars: The Golden Age of the Red Planet is one of two launching titles in the British Library Science Fiction Classics series.
