Reading...The Martian Chronicles by Raymond Bradbury

"The Martian Chronicles is a 1950 science fiction short story collection by Ray Bradbury that chronicles the colonization of Mars by humans fleeing from a troubled and eventually atomically devastated Earth, and the conflict between aboriginal Martians and the new colonists. The book lies somewhere between a short story collection and an episodic novel, containing stories Bradbury originally published in the late 1940s in science fiction magazines. For publication, the stories were loosely woven together with a series of short, interstitial vignettes." Source: Wikipedia

I read that back in high school. There was a movie made about then base on the book. There were both a bit strange.

It was a three-part TV mini-series in 1980 with Rock Hudson.
