Mars! The Red Planet! For generations, people have wondered what it would be like to travel to and live there. That curiosity has inspired some of the most durable science fiction, including Ray Bradbury's The Martian Chronicles and the work of Isaac Asimov. Now the award-winning anthologist Jonathan Strahan has brought together thirteen original stories to explore the possibilities. After reading Life on Mars, readers will never look at the fourth planet from the sun the same way again.

Jonathan Strahan lives in Perth, Australia. Life on Mars is a collection of stories having to do with people living on a the red planet of the near future where hardships still abound for colonists.

Jonathan Strahan lives in Perth, Australia. The quality of stories varies greatly, the first four being so close in theme that made it seem like a YA collection, that I almost put it down without finishing it. Those four stories deal with young people on Mars, doing something very foolish, and having to be rescued, or finally making it back on their own, with a lesson learned. The best of the four was Wahala, a first encounter story with a bit of a twist.

Life on Mars is a collection of stories having to do with people living on a the red planet of the near future where hardships still abound for colonists. The quality of stories varies greatly, the first four being so close in theme that made it seem like a YA collection, that I almost put it down without finishing it. Those four stories deal with young people on Mars, doing something very foolish, and having to be rescued, or finally making it back on their own, with a lesson learned. The best of the four was Wahala, a first encounter story with a bit of a twist. The Old Man and the Martian Sea by Alastair Reynolds, although predictable, was well written and pulled the reader along.

Martian Chronicles by Cory Doctorow was different only in the intelligence and ingenuity of the young protagonist, which actually made it a better story of a young colonist. Goodnight Moons by Ellen Klages is the sort of story we hope won't happen in real life. It is touching and sad, yet full of hope. Digging by Ian McDonald was a disappointment in that the end seemed to go nowhere. LARP on Mars, is sort of a story that could happen anywhere. Martian Heart by John Barnes, also sad, but a wonderful story, really. Then, last, but not least, Discovering Life is a last line story that was fun and reflected the frustration felt by many of us who really believe that we should be in space.

With a proposed Mars mission in the news today, these stories have a currency at the moment. I guess my biggest complaint is that, in the introduction, Strahan writes about earlier books on fictional Mars, but he doesn't once mention Ray Bradbury's Martian Chronicles. To me, that is an important omission.

If you're looking for short stories about frontier life on Mars, that's exactly what you'll get. Despite being written to meet deadlines and fit the parameters, the authors here really make it work. Some of the concepts overlap in a few of the stories, but luckily they were concepts that I felt should be looked at by different viewpoints. I especially enjoyed Doctorow's "Martian Chronicles" and found that it really tied everything together. On par with "The Starry Rift".

I'm a huge fan of stories set on or about Mars and this was a great find. Aside from all the brilliant stories by writers I'm familiar with (and love), I had the pleasure of being introduced to Nnedi Okorafor, who's story Wahala, was one of my favorites of the collection.
