Author James Van Pelt has fond memories of SF

Author James Van Pelt wrote a moving piece in his LiveJournal titled “Twenty-Five Autobiographical Science Fiction Connections.” The list of items, which is a nostalgic look back at memorable science fiction moments in his life, contains several connections to Mars. Here’s my favorite one, item #4:

"The first book I ever bought a second copy of was Ray Bradbury's The Martian Chronicles. I had gotten sick and threw up on the first copy (I missed the bucket). TMI, I know."

Check out the entire list, which mentions Edgar Rice Burroughs, C. S. Lewis, and Tom Corbett.
