The Martian Chronicles [Book Club]


By Ray Bradbury

Cool vintage edition of Bradbury’s first novel

Out of stock


  • Book Club Edition [Nelson Doubleday, New York, 1978*]; 222 pages; red boards, black titling to spine, ends bumped, an excellent copy; in the very good dustjacket, spine sunned, a little rubbed & toned at edges
  • Jacket illustration by Gary Viskupic*
  • This was Bradbury’s first novel, although it was effectively a reworking of several interconnected short stories. Published in the UK under the title The Silver Locusts.

*Book Club Editions are notoriously difficult to date  – this particular book has publication copyrights up to 1958 but cover art suggests this later reprint date.
