Title: Sleepers of Mars
Author: John Wyndham
Page Count/Review Word Count: 160
This book is interesting because it’s a collection of short stories and there are a ton of good ideas here to digest. The titular story is also a sequel to Stowaway to Mars, which I read right before this one.
I particularly liked the fact that the final story was called The Third Vibrator, which it’s difficult not to like. The other stories here were Worlds to Barter, Invisible Monster and The Man from Earth. Each of them was worth reading, and each of them left me with something that I took away.
That’s because Wyndham is at his best as an ideas man, and so when he’s writing short stories, he exposes the reader to a bunch of different ideas that leave them questioning ethics, morality and the relentless progress of science. Give it a good try!
