The Mysterious Stranger

by Olive Gundran

A thrilling science-fiction novel told in first person narrative. Giving her story the appearances of a real life experience, the author plunges the reader into a captivating extraterrestrial world dreamed-of by all who long to explore Mars, real or fancied. Her rich imagination takes us deep into a fantasy universe of Martians whose society is more organized, moral, and spiritual, than ours, with elaborate political systems and stunning progress. Well-written and impressive, The Mysterious Stranger is "a timely and effective work of science-fiction which will spell-bound and fascinate every reader." (from DJ flap). 56 pages. 5.75 x 8.25 inches.
