The Martian Chronicles

Серия: "-"

Written in the age of the atom, when America and Europe optimistically viewed the discovery of life on Mars as inevitable, Bradbury's closely interwoven tales of a brutal, stark and unforgiving Martian landscape are both astonishing and insightful. The Martian Chronicles tells the story of humanity's repeated attempts to colonize the red planet. The first men were few. Most succumbed to a disease called the Great Loneliness when they saw their home planet dwindle to the size of a fist. Those few who survived found no welcome on Mars. But more rockets arrived from Earth, and more. People brought their old prejudices with them - and their desires and fantasies and tainted dreams.

Bradbury, Ray

▪ American writer
in full  Ray Douglas Bradbury  
born Aug. 22, 1920, Waukegan, Ill., U.S.

      American author best known for highly imaginative science-fiction short stories and novels that blend social criticism with an awareness of the hazards of runaway technology.

      Bradbury published his first story in 1940 and was soon contributing widely to magazines. His first book of short stories, Dark Carnival (1947), was followed by The Martian Chronicles (1950), which is generally accounted a science-fiction classic in its depiction of materialistic Earthmen exploiting and corrupting an idyllic Martian civilization. Bradbury's other important short-story collections include The Illustrated Man (1951), The Golden Apples of the Sun (1953), The October Country (1955), A Medicine for Melancholy (1959), The Machineries of Joy (1964), I Sing the Body Electric! (1969), and Quicker Than the Eye (1996). His novels include Fahrenheit 451 (1953; filmed 1966); Dandelion Wine (1957) and its sequel, Farewell Summer (2006); Something Wicked This Way Comes (1962; filmed 1983); and Death Is a Lonely Business (1985). He wrote stage plays, television scripts, and several screenplays, including Moby Dick (1956; in collaboration with John Huston). In the 1970s Bradbury wrote several volumes of poetry, and in the 1970s and '80s he concentrated on writing children's stories and crime fiction. His short stories have been published in more than 700 anthologies. In 2007 the Pulitzer Prize Board awarded Bradbury a Special Citation for his distinguished career.
