The Martian Chronicles

The Martian Chronicles

by Ray Bradbury

The Martian Chronicles The Summer Night Summary

  • Interchapter time once again. This time, we're on Mars.
  • Martians all over the planet are acting pretty weird. In fact, they're singing songs and reciting poems from Earth—specifically, America of the 1940s. 
  • Okay, guess we know where Battlestar Galactica got the idea for using "All Along the Watchtower." (What's that? Oh, only the best sci-fi of the twenty-first century.)
