Early in the 21st century, nearly twenty years after the invention of atomic power and ten years after the first lunar landing, the four-man crew of the Ares has landed on Mars in the Mare Cimmerium. A week after the landing, Dick Jarvis, the ship's American chemist, sets out south in an auxiliary rocket to photograph the landscape. Eight hundred miles out, the engine on Jarvis' rocket gives out, and he crash-lands into one of the Thyle regions. Jarvis discovers many strange creatures and things on the red planet!

Stanley G. Weinbaum is a figure who looms large in the history of SF: years before John W. Campbell began editing "Astounding," he was writing stories that had much the same appeal. He came, in a real sense, out of nowhere -- not literally, but close to it. Most of the folks writing SF in the first years of the genre were folks who'd write "any" sort of "pulp" fiction for the pulps: westerns today, confessions tomorrow, mysteries on Thursdays, and oh, yes, scientificition on weekends. Weinbaum started out trying to be a writer of that stripe -- he managed to publish a women's serial called "The Lady Dances" through the King-Features newspaper syndicate in 1933, as "Marge Stanley." A serial that's never been reprinted, much to universal regret). But when the weekend came and he tried his hand at SF, something special happened. The book you hold in your hands is a bit of that specialness. It includes half a dozen of Weinbaum's scientifictional stories -- "A Martian Odyssey" (of course!), "Valley of Dreams," "The Worlds of If," "The Ideal," "The Point of View," and "Pygmalion's Spectacles." Enjoy!

Stanley G. Weinbaum is best known for his short story "A Martian Odyssey" which has been influencing Science Fiction since it was first published in 1934. Weinbaum is considered the first writer to contrive an alien who thought as well as a human, but not like a human. A Martian Odyssey and its sequel are presented here as well as other Weinbaum gems including 3 stories featuring the egomaniacal physicist Haskel van Manderpootz and his former student, playboy Dixon Wells. First Page: Transcriber's Note: This eBook was produced from the 1949 book A Martian Odyssey and Others by Stanley G. Weinbaum, pp. 1 27. Extensive research did not uncover any evidence that the U.S. copyright on this publication was renewed. A MARTIAN ODYSSEY Jarvis stretched himself as luxuriously as he could in the cramped general quarters of the Ares . "Air you can breathe!" he exulted. "It feels as thick as soup after the thin stuff out there!" He nodded at the Martian landscape stretching flat and desolate in the light of the nearer moon, beyond the glass of the port. The other three stared at him sympathetically Putz, the engineer, Leroy, the biologist, and Harrison, the astronomer and captain of the expedition. Dick Jarvis was chemist of the famous crew, the Ares expedition, first human beings to set foot on the mysterious neighbor of the earth, the planet Mars.

A Martian Odyssey set the career of Stanley Weinbaum off like a bomb, since he wrote a story like none had done before: it was about an alien who is sentient and intelligent rather than a mindless barbarian. He also added the twist that despite the creature's intelligence, it didn't have human logic or reason. The story features a four-man crew who have crash-landed on Mars, and one of them, Dick Jarvis, who sets out on his own. He meets Tweel, a sympathetic creature who shows him the ways of the planet. A strange pyramid building creature, a tentacled "dream beast," and broken record cart people. Check out for yourself why A Martian Odyssey came in 2nd in the best science fiction stories of all time, right behind Asimov's Nightfall.
