Forthcoming: “Gilbert and Edgar on Mars”, a novella by Eric Brown

“Gilbert and Edgar on Mars”, a forthcoming novella by British science fiction author Eric Brown, is scheduled to be released by PS Publishing in mid 2009. Here’s a synopsis, taken directly from PS Publishing's website:

G. K. Chesterton, fantastical novelist, literary journalist, paradoxical poet and prolific short story writer penned more than a hundred books in his lifetime as well as countless articles and essays on every subject under the sun -- but only now can his travels across the face of the red planet be revealed.

In this exuberant novella Eric Brown recounts Chesterton's astounding adventures on Mars, his meeting with Edgar Rice Burroughs and his treatment at the hands of the Six Philosophers.

Why was Chesterton whisked away from planet Earth -- and will he ever return?

Eric Brown is also the author of “Myths of the Martian Future” (2002), a short story that was written for and published in the anthology Mars Probes (2002). He maintains a website at
