Description

<p><b>From myth to Musk, astrology to astronomy, Dr Stuark Clark selects the very best writing about the Red Planet. </b></p><p>From its very first sighting, Mars has been a source of fascination for humanity. Named for the Roman god of war, this red planet has been explored more than any other beyond Earth and continues to occupy a distinctive place in our imagination. It's an environment that may even foster life.</p><p>In <i>The Book of Mars</i>, Dr Stuart Clark selects one hundred pieces of writing about the planet. It is a collection that brings together fact and fiction, dreams and fears, centuries of observation and more recent feats of interstellar exploration.</p><p>From classic writers of science fiction – Stanley G. Weinbaum, Arthur C. Clarke, H.G. Wells, Ray Bradbury, Pamela Sargent, Roger Zelazny – to distinguished experts in astronomy, astrobiology and aerospace engineering; from Hugo and Nebula Award-winning authors – Kim Stanley Robinson, Mary Robinette Kowal, Mary Turzillo – to trail-blazing journalists and science communicators; from Andy Weir's <i>The Martian</i> to Elon Musk's SpaceX programme, <i>The Book of Mars</i> is an extraordinary overview both of the Red Planet and of the way scientific investigation diffuses into culture.</p>
