Our fascination with extraterrestrials, aliens, and UFOs is hardly new. Two famous inventors were fascinated with Mars and wondered if they were making contact with the Martians. Guglielmo Marconi and Nicholas Tesla no sooner had created radio than they began to wonder whether the ‘noise of the line’ might be signals from the Red Planet. And this was 120 years ago!
Eight years ago, I wrote LYING WONDERS OF THE RED PLANET discussing the many references to Mars in our culture for the past two centuries. Mars theories were the first installment of ‘ancient aliens.’
You might enjoy listening to Josh Peck and I discuss this fascinating topic – it’s only 11 minutes in length.
If this catches your interest, I posted two other blogs over the past week or so that hit some other amazing topics related to Mars. I hope you’ll check them out. And if you are really interested, pick up a copy of the book that started this quest, LYING WONDERS OF THE RED PLANET, at my store. (Click on the cover on the left.)
I’ll be offering the book discounted to $12.95 for the rest of this month. And for the first ten purchasers, I’ll throw in a CD that has the entire two-hour interview, 5 foundational books on Mars, and several articles I wrote on the topic several years ago. Blessings and have a great weekend!
