the Martian Chronicles MC But guess what It wasn t a re read Nope Seems, I now believe, that what I ve been thinking were vague memories of MC must have been vague memories of some other story connected with Mars in some way view spoiler See Oh yes at the bottom hide spoiler I d always thought of myself as a science fiction fan Yet, since joining Goodreads a few years ago, hooking up with an ever growing number of friends, and finding an ever growing number of SF novels that yes certainly I ve heard of this probably read it long ago well maybe not butI ve come to realize that, like most things in my life, I do not have now, and never have had, a real fan s deep knowledge of SF I m just not that kind of person My interests are wide I like to think and hope but my knowledge in any area is shallow I generally have to admit Thus with sf I was reading it as a pre teen, then as a teen, was a member of an sf book club, subscribed to Fantasy Science Fiction FSF the magazine then as I transitioned from high school to college, it gradually got left behind for other reading interests,interesting to a young person beginning to learn about real life.Ray BradburyRay Bradbury was born in 1920 in Waukegan Illinois Until he was thirteen his family lived there and in Tucson, moving back and forth between the two places Wiki In 1934 they move to Los Angeles.Bradbury never went to college, due to lack of money Other than his public school education, he spent major portions of his young life reading in libraries, both in Waukegan and in the LA area He has saidI am a librarian I discovered me in the library I went to find me in the library Before I fell in love with libraries, I was just a six year old boy The library fueled all of my curiosities, from dinosaurs to ancient Egypt When I graduated from high school in 1938, I began going to the library three nights a week I did this every week for almost ten years and finally, in 1947, around the time I got married, I figured I was done So I graduated from the library when I was twenty seven I discovered that the library is the real school Paris And what did Bradley read in these thousands of hours spent in libraries Science Fiction by Clarke, Asimov, Van Vogt, Heinlein but his greatest loves in this genre were Jules Verne and H.G Wells writers such as Steinbeck, Sherwood Anderson, Huxley, Thomas Wolfe, Thomas Mann women writers like Eudora Welty, Katherine Anne Porter, and Edith Wharton and poetry Shakespeare, Hopkins, Frost, Yeats MC was published three years after Bradbury graduated By this time 1950 his first book Dark Carnival, a short story collection had been published in 1947 by Arkham House Bradbury had also published almost 150 short stories in such magazines as Weird Tales, Thrilling Wonder Stories and Planet Stories His first three stories unpaid were published in 1938, two of them prior to his eighteenth birthday He continued writing during the war years his bad eyesight prevented him from serving , with 11 stories published in 1943, 19 in 44 and 13 in 45 From 1946 until the end of the 40s between 17 and 20 stories were published yearly In the second half of the 1940s Bradbury had several stories appear in mainstream magazines Mademoiselle, Charm, Seventeen, Colliers, Harpers, The New Yorker, and Macleans view spoiler The first three were women s and girls magazines, Macleans was a Canadian news magazine, and the other three were very well known culture magazines, two of them Colliers and Harpers founded in the nineteenth century Most of these magazines are still being published hide spoiler Bradbury s fiction my version Following is a list of Bradbury s books that I knew well by reputation at the time in my life when I was sailing away from contact with the shores of SF.1950 Bradbury s first novel.1951, short story collection1953 short story collectionThe title is of course from W B Yeats poem The Song of Wandering Aengus 1899 Though I am old with wanderingThrough hollow lands and hilly lands,I will find out where she has goneAnd kiss her lips and take her hands And walk among long dappled grass,And pluck till time and times are doneThe silver apples of the moon,The golden apples of the sun The 1953 classic.1955 collection of macabre short stories 1957 fix up novel see following section for fix up novels 1962 novel Something Wicked This Way Comes Ray BradburyFantasy horror Stephen King was fifteen King has stated without Ray Bradbury, there is no Stephen King 1969 book of short storiesThe title of the book and a short story within is from the poem of the same name in Walt Whitman s magnum opus Leaves of Grass.Of course Bradley didn t stop writing in 1969 I just lost touch.After letting my FSF subscription lapse in the 60s sometime, I saw in the 90s that it was still being published, and resubscribed for a few years I was surprised to see Bradbury stories still appearing in the mag When he died in 2012 he had published 27 novels, around fifty collections of his hundreds of short stories, over 20 plays, dozens of teleplays and screenplays including the screenplay for John Huston s 1956 movie Moby Dick and several children s book.The Chronicles of MarsThe Martian Chronicles 1950 was Bradbury s second published book If one wants to be technical, it is afix up novel According to Wiki, a fix up novel is a novel created from short fiction that may or may not have been initially related or previously published Wiki has a little story about how the book came about, which makes this clear In 1949, Bradbury and his wife were expecting their first child He took a Greyhound bus to New York and checked into a room at the YMCA for fifty cents a night He took his short stories to a dozen publishers and no one wanted them Bradbury had dinner with an editor at Doubleday When Bradbury recounted that everyone wanted a novel and he didn t have one, the editor asked if the short stories might be tied together into a book length collection The title was the editor s idea The Martian Chronicles Bradbury liked the idea and recalled making notes in 1944 to do a book set on Mars That evening, he stayed up all night at the YMCA and typed out an outline He took it to the Doubleday editor the next morning, who read it and wrote Bradbury a check for view spoiler here Wiki says ten thousand dollars but the interview cited as the source of the story ref Paris says seven hundred fifty dollars maybe the Wiki writer thought they d be cute by adjusting it for inflationhide spoiler When Bradbury returned to Los Angeles, he connected all the short stories and that became The Martian Chronicles.MC has 26 chapters Each has a name preceded by a date For example, the first chapter is January 1999 Rocket Summer and the last is October 2026 The Million Year Picnic 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 1948 1950 Two other chapters are revised versions of previous stories Altogether these account for about half the Chronicles by page count.These seven stories have been masterfully worked into a history of man s colonization of Mars, a satirical story with shifting moods ranging from elegiac, to poignant, to terrifying, to depressing illustrating mankind s human, all too human nature The chronicles are filled with characters who voice the varying human outlooks on everything from interaction with the natives yes, there are natives , to the idea of remaking Mars in the image of the earth.Beyond this I don t want to go It would spoil things for new readers It s a short work, which I recommend to almost everyone Oh yes that Martian story My memories of the story I had thought was part of the Chronicles were pretty clear, albeit scant I felt it had been about a lone man lost and wandering on Mars So I started hunting through collections of SF short fiction that I still had from long ago It didn t take too long to find it, in a book of short stories by A.E Van Vogt called Destination Universe When I saw the title The Enchanted Village I knew I had it It was a story about a man shipwrecked in the Martian desert when the expedition rocket from earth crashes, leaving him as the only survivor He finds a technologically marvelous, deserted village which seems able to be commanded to produce whatever beings in the village desire The story draws out the man s increasingly desperate attempts to make the village understand what he needs Finally he succeeds though not quite as he anticipated Great story No wonder I kept pieces of it packed in my neurons for half a century andReferencesBradbury s Wiki

one will be VERY tough Martian Chronicles surpasses, in some ways, that which Bradbury tried, and admits to imitating with this collection of short stories the crazy masterpiece, Winesburg, Ohio by Sherwood Anderson The fear that permeates in these pages a horror novelthan a sci fi one well, early sci fi is mostly always horrific is un peggable, untraceable, and just completely yep, Martian It is eerie at a supreme level truly heightened emotions in this 50 s version of our future The Chronicles turn Voltairesque, then it all becomes a western as fixed and terrible as anything by Cormac McCarthy full of guns and violence, then takes a Tarantino turn of events, robots and It s all one powerful and unique oxymoron Bradbury writes just the perfectly extra adjective in many of his sentences Maybe one extrathan needed Et voila amazingness It s tidily overindulgent and superfluously concise A Terrific, Terrible Wonder The Martian Chronicles is a book I have heard about for years,

classic I think that goes without saying I have now finally read it and it is amazing I continue to be impressed with Bradbury s writing style and his style is very well defined I am pretty sure he is so integrated into how and what he writes, I could probably guess that a book is written by Bradbury after just a few paragraphs and that is not me bragging on my ability to figure out who wrote something, it is just that obvious that it is Bradbury.When I went into this I thought, Martian Chronicles Sci Fi That is very wrong This book felt muchlike his Magical Realism titles I have read While most of the book takes place on Mars, the content is not about space travel, and aliens, and cool technology It is about the human condition, perception vs reality, misuse of natural resources, man seeing himself as an island, etc It is a commentary on people and the tendency for our hopes to be destroyed by our inability to truly see the best and right course of action Generally it is very dark there is a little ray of hope to it, but the overall feel is if we don t get our s t together, we are doomed.So, if you are looking for sci fi and want nothing less than space battles and cool spaceships, this is not the book for you If you are a fan of other Bradbury, cautionary tales, and speculative fiction, this is right up you alley For centuries man has dreamed about going to Mars He

hero he expected to be greeted with open arms by the Martians But, alas, the Martians have a very different opinion to the aliens that invaded their planet A funny, and realistic, response When the Earth men arrived the Martians murdered them for a number of wacky reasons They feared that the invaders would steal their wives and also that the humans were in fact Martians merely pretending to be humans, this, according to their lore, is one of the many signs of madness So, the Martians euthanized them Yes, euthanized them This made me laugh so much because man, in his naivety, expected an entirely human reaction from an alien race They couldn t comprehend that perhaps the aliens may be different to themselves they didn t consider that their so called expeditions could be received so negativelyIt is good to renew one s wonder, said the philosopher Space travel has again made children of us all Indeed, as ever man did not stop to think about what he was doing he simply rushed in and expected the best He ignorantly presumed that he wouldn t be received as a threat and an invader that needed to be fought off Time and time again man repeats his mistakes and, for me, this formed the main motif of this collection of short stories Man just never learns This is signified by the repeated expeditions into the unknown that only ended in disaster, first for the humans and then eventually for the Martian people Bradbury questions human existence A very dim view of humanity is evoked in these pages Bradbury suggests that Martian culture has transcended its human counterpart the Martians have accepted an animalistic ethos in which they live for the simple sake of existence They do not question religion or science they blend the two together in a display of cultural harmony However, the brutish man is too limited to do this and as a result has lost all sense of faith The image of the Martian way of life is captured in the serene beauty of their cities, which is juxtaposed against the humans incessant wondering on foreign soilWe earth men have a talent for ruining big, beautiful things I think in drawing this parallel Bradbury makes a suggestion on the foolish nature of man By contrasting the two cultures we see that man will never be fulfilled and complete he will be harboured by a perpetual longing to havethan he has The continuous visits to Mars symbolise this Earth is not enough for man, he wants Mars too Perhaps I am reading too much into this but I think in this Bradbury creates a message that is strong and true These short stories come together to provide a picture of man that highlights some of his less admirable qualities.This is a great collection of science fiction stories that, together, speak louder than they do alone Whilst each is individual they are, of course, meant to be read as a collection This provides a comment of the nature of man, and a highly entertaining reading experience I enjoyed this short story

Fiction Yes, it does have a bit of space travel, some alien encounters, some hi tech technologies but they are totally not the point of these stories I guess the main idea I got can be summarized by the following quoteWe earth men have a talent for ruining big, beautiful things The martian Chronicles are stories about destruction, in many forms caused by what humanity has worse war, censorship, ignorance, disrespect for other cultures, greed, fear etc The stories are beautiful, fascinating but very disturbing and scary in the same time It made me meditate on the future of humanity and for long we will be able to survive as a race, doing what we are doing Will we be condemned to destruction I leave you with some quotes belowThere was a smell of Time in the air tonight He smiled and turned the fancy in his mind There was a thought What did time smell like Like dust and clocks and people And if you wondered what Time sounded like it sounded like water running in a dark cave and voices crying and dirt dropping down upon hollow box lids, and rain And, going further, what did Time look like Time look like snow dropping silently into a black room or it looked like a silent film in an ancient theater, 100 billion faces falling like those New Year balloons, down and down into nothing That was how Time smelled and looked and sounded And tonight Tomas shoved a hand into the wind outside the truck tonight you could almost taste time I m not anyone, I m just myself whatever I am, I am something, and now I m something you can t help They began by controlling books of cartoons and then detective books and, of course, films, one way or another, one group or another, political bias, religious prejudice, union pressure there was always a minority afraid of something, and a great majority afraid of the dark, afraid of the future, afraid of the past, afraid of the present, afraid of themselves and shadows of themselves Ignorance is fatal Poetic science fiction Being set

colonization of Mars, but it is really about the human psyche and a study of what is best and worst about us SF must read Wow Justwow Why have I never read this before Ray Bradbury has written an amazing, lyrical, spooky as hell set of pieces that all add up to something muchSome are very brief, mere sketches of events Others are full length short stories.Note The rest of this review has been

read before, and read the others that I have missed After rereading Something Wicked This Way Comes last month I thought I d read Fahrenheit 451 but as it turned out The Reddit SF Book Club chose The Martian Chronicles as book of the month July 2012 so in order to keep up with the Joneses here we are How about that for a useless intro This book is a fix up novel which is something between an anthology and a novel, and it benefits from both of its sibling formats The stories are interrelated with only a few recurring characters but read together the whole is certainly greater than the sum of its parts It is also worth noting that while the table of contents look as if there are almost 30 stories in the book, quite a few of these are not really stories in themselves but brief passages that lead to the next story or provide background information to move the major story arc of the book forward In general the book tells the story of the colonization of Mars, which in a sense is a little bit like the reverse of H.G Wells The War of the Worlds in that we invade Mars and they fight back in their quiet ways only to meet the same fate as their counterparts in Wells book The major difference is that there is no interplanetary war and it is only the first part of the Chronicles.I just want to make a few notes on the main stories, the brief interludes are also great but too short my noting purposes.Ylla February 1999 2030 A Martian woman dreams or have a premonition of an Earthman s arrival The actual First Contact does not go well.The Summer Night August 1999 2030 Name that tune suddenly an Earth song becomes a hit on Mars but none of the Martians can name it because they pick it up telepathically The song s lyrics remind me of Stairway to Heaven a bit.The Earth Men August 1999 2030 This one starts off as a comical First Contact story, with the Earthmen not getting the rock star welcome they expected It soon becomes rather tragic and ends on a dark melancholy note Wonderful story.The Third Expedition April 2000 2031 A little creepy in a nice sort of way, reminds me a little of Invasion of the Body Snatchers No point noting especially that it is a great story because they all are in this book.And the Moon Be Still as Bright June 2001 2032 Us Earthlings do have a tendency to ruin everything we touch with our inconsiderate and uncouth ways Love that teeth knocking ending The Settlers August 2001 2032 most men felt the great illness in them even before the rocket fired into space And this disease was called The Loneliness, because when you saw your hometown dwindle the size of your fist and then lemon size and then pin size and vanish in the fire wake, you felt you had never been born, there was no town, you were nowhere, with space all around, nothing familiar, only other strange men I just love this passage, so evocative The Green Morning December 2001 2032 Miraculous bit of terraforming.Night Meeting August 2002 2033 A sort of meeting in The Twilight Zone, feels like a ghost story but is not one More of a time traveling tale but who is doing the time traveling The Musicians April 2003 2034 Damn kids using Martian bones as xylophones Way in the Middle of the Air June 2003 2034 A wonderful heartfelt story about the Black Americans who have had enough of being lorded over and just want to emigrate to Mars.Usher II April 2005 2036 This really does read like a Poe story, or a cross between Fahrenheit 451 and Theatre of Blood old Vincent Price movie.The Martian September 2005 2036 Poor little Martian boy One of the best stories herein.The Watchers November 2005 2036 En masse de colonization.The Silent Towns December 2005 2036 A comical story about the last man in the world and the girl he is almost fated to marry LOL The Long Years April 2026 2057 I like the robo family.There Will Come Soft Rains August 4, 2026 2057 I am not sure if this story is in the public domain though I doubt it but the full text seems to get posted online a lot The first time I read it was as a standalone and I did not really appreciate it For me reading this story out of the context of The Martian Chronicles does not quite work because I did not know what led up to the abandonment of the automated house at the centre of the story Now having read the preceding chapters this story has stronger impact.This is Bradbury at his poetic best.The Million Year Picnic October 2026 2057 Nice optimistic ending.I am useless at deciphering themes but it seems that there is a subtext that we as a species have a nasty tendency to ruin everything, but we are not completely hopeless if we would only try harder to live in harmony with each other and with nature.Fantastic from beginning to end, and effortless 5 stars.Note A 1997 edition of the book advances all the dates by 31 years thus running from 2030 to 2057 from Wikipedia We earth men have a talent for ruining big, beautiful things The Martian Chronicles, a perfect example of what I d call a quintessential Bradbury fragmentary, at times disjointed, occasionally crossing the line into the realm of surreal, full of his trademark nostalgia and sadness, this account of the failed American Dream approach to the exploration of the ultimate frontier never stops fascinating me and drawing me in with its inexplicable charm Side note as a person of Russian descent We earth men have a talent for ruining big, beautiful things The Martian Chronicles, a perfect example of what I d call a quintessential Bradbury fragmentary, at times disjointed, occasionally crossing the line into the realm of surreal, full of his trademark nostalgia and sadness, this account of the failed American Dream approach to the exploration of the ultimate frontier never stops fascinating me and drawing me in with its inexplicable charm Side note as a person of Russian descent, I reserve the right to run on long winded sentences in the best tradition of Tolstoy and Dostoyevsky of which my literature teacher mother clearly approves.It is such a multifaceted tale It is a condemnation of the dear to the human heart way of exploration and colonization that is, coming to a place new to us and attempting to turn it into a carbon copy of home , of the place where we come from, of the place that gives us comfort and all else be damned It is an ode to the beauty of the strange and un understood alienness It is a criticism of the American Dream which was written in the heyday of this Dream It is a thinly veiled cautionary tale about the perils of science when misapplied It is all of the above and none of the above, with everything masterfully interwoven to create a unique unforgettable reading experience Who wants to see the Future, who ever does A man can face the Past, but to think the pillars crumbled, you say And the sea empty, and the canals dry, and the maidens dead, and the flowers withered The Martian was silent, but then he looked ahead But there they are I see them Isn t that enough for me They wait for me now, no matter what you say The story, for those who somehow are not familiar with it, is simple In the far future of 1999, rocket ships from Earth start coming to Mars The Martians the enigmatic, serene, telepathic race sense the disturbances Eventually they die off, and the colonization in the American Dream style begins, until the nuclear war on Earth interferes But the narrative is not quite this linear It is made of separate, rather stand alone short stories that often read as interludes, some straightforward, some surreal, but all of them quite haunting, memorable, and thought provoking Bradbury is was, actually I still can t believe he s dead a master of writing peaceful, nostalgic sadness that feels upliftingly purifying His writing is poetic and lyrical, often dreamlike, with almost a musical quality to it He often straddles the line between cautionary and moralistic, but mostly succeeds at not crossing over to the unpleasantly preachy side He is exceptionally good at writing amazing short fiction since this is what this book essentially is, a collection of interlinked short stories He manages to create a memorable, beautifully flowing, sophisticated story without a steadily progressing plot, without a main or even a major character, without even a consistent setting Night are night for every year and every year, for no reason at all, the woman comes out and looks at the sky, her hands up, for a long moment, looking at the green burning of Earth, not knowing why she looks, and then she goes back and throws a stick on the fire, and the wind comes up and the dead sea goes on being dead Now, as an aside, I heard this book described as not really a science fiction book but a speculative fiction book quite a few times, almost apologetically, as though science fiction is something to be ashamed of I understand that this book is essentially a crossover phenomenon which appeals to sci fi fans and general public alike, and describing it as something else besides sci fi can help generate a wider audience and a broader appeal But hey, I realized that I don t want to be the person falling into this trap the trap of dismissing sci fi as something that is not literary enough, something of interior quality, something to be apologetic about Bradbury, Le Guin, Mi ville, Lem insert your own favorite acclaimed sci fi author here are NOT great writers thatahemjust happen to write sci fi but maybe not quite really They are excellent sci fi writers, and that s how I recommend their books, even at the threat of losing potential audience After all, Bradbury s The Martian Chronicles was not only one of the first books that I checked out of the adult library, but also the book which cemented my love for science fiction, first fueled by Poul Anderson s Call Me Joe The Martian Chronicles is an excellent book, the one that I will continue to re read every few years or so It deserves ALL the stars The Martians stared back up at them for a long, long silent time from the rippling water. ,,
