The French on Mars: 100 years of SF (1865-1965)

Thanks to Tinkoo of the blog Variety SF, I learned about an interesting English-Language website that provides an annotated bibliography titled The French on Mars: a Hundred Years Retrospective (1865-1965), compiled by a fellow named Jacques Garin. Most of the titles are new to me and there are even a few pieces of cover art. All worth your time if you’re a serious fan of Martian science fiction!
