Fourth Planet From the Sun ed. by Gordon Van Gelder *****

A wonderfully entertaining collection of short stories dealing with humanity's efforts to explore and/or colonize Mars. One or two of the stories aren't quite top-notch, but most are original and either very funny or powerfully thoughtful. The first story, by Bradbury, about two women preparing to join 5000 others to travel to Mars to join (or find) their husbands, is a lovely meditation on the frontier experiences of women. It's so beautifully written I had to read it twice. Other stories will have readers laughing out loud by the end. A varied grouping which will tickle Mars enthusiasts no end.
