Summary

Ray Bradbury once described his first novel, The Martian Chronicles, as a
collection of short stories "pretending to be a novel." In fact, many of
the Martian stories were published individually, and it wasn't until 1950
that Bradbury stitched them all together.
This patchwork storytelling made it hard for us to get a bead on 
Chronicles . Craig liked it, but we found it hard to discuss why without
the benefit of a central character or singular narrative. That said, you
can still join us for a lively talk about colonialism, space travel,
Fearing the Bomb, and twerking (for some reason).
