Book Description:
The first of these stories was originally published in the July 1934 issue of Wonder Stories. It was followed four months later by a sequel, "Valley of Dreams" in the same magazine. These classic stories take us to Mars where we meet a Martian, or at least something very different from us, and several other completely original specimens of life. The Martian "Tweel" looks like an ostrich and the Egyptian god Osiris - for good reason, as you will find out if you listen to the story! These are both classic, funny, strange, entertaining, and, in my opinion, great stories by an imaginative master - summary by philc

Reviews (Rated: 5 Stars - 1 review)

Subject: A Martian Odyssey
A Martian Odyssey has been said to be the best short SF story of all time. I agree!!!! Don't miss it. Unfortunately Stanley died at the age of 33 of lung cancer. Had he lived longer I'm sure he would have become one of the greatest SF writers. Gregg Margarite is a consumate reader.
