"What a treat! Garrett P. Serviss' Edison's Conquest of Mars is a wonderful romp that should appeal to fans of Wells, fans of Mars, and fans of fast-paced action-adventure storytelling. Apogee Books has done a great service bringing this forgotten gem back into print—let us hope it's only the first of many science fiction rediscoveries to be reissued by the master chroniclers of the space age." —Robert J. Sawyer, Hugo Award-winning author, Hominids
