Wonder Woman and the Wasilla Public Library

With allegations that Republican vice-presidential nominee Sarah “Diana Prince” Palin might have tried to ban some library books when she served as mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, we thought it would be fun to search the catalog of the Wasilla Public Library for some Martian science fiction books.

Surprisingly, the Wasilla Public Library doesn’t have any of the John Carter books by Edgar Rice Burroughs or the Mars books by Kim Stanley Robinson, but here are some neat books that they do have:

The Martian Chronicles, by Ray Bradbury (1950)
The Encyclopedia of Superheroes on Film and Television (2004)
Olympos, by Dan Simmons (2005)
Mars Needs Moms!, by Berke Breathed (2007)
Mars Life, by Ben Bova (2008)
