This book deeply disturbed us the first time we tried to read it. Our young minds had already devoured sci-fi novels for grown-ups. Several Ray Bradbury short story collections already earned him a life-long place in our literary hearts. But these illustrations by Ian Miller really freaked us out!
Have a look for yourself. We sacrificed a battered copy of this edition of The Martian Chronicles to the gods of art and internet immortality so that you may share in the strange, unearthly, and somewhat maniacal artwork with us. Enjoy the stark beauty of Miller’s Martian landscape, and the creepy-crawly nightmares he conjures up for this most famous of Ray Bradbury epics.
– From The Martian Chronicles; Bantam Books, 1979 Illustrated Edition.
