BOOK DESCRIPTION





Epic, entertaining, Stranger in a Strange Land caused an uproar when it first appeared as it savaged conventional, religious, sexual and social ideas.

Still topical and challenging, the story of Valentine Michael Smith
the first man from Mars to visit Earth is in the great tradition that stretches from Gulliver's Travels to 1984.

Originally published in a shorter version, this is the most celebrated science fiction novel of all time in its full, unexpurgated form.
