Science Fiction Romance father marriage childhood Mars junkyard space flight

As a child, Lorenzo’s father took him and his siblings on a fantastic trip to Mars—or so the story goes. But what if none of it happened at all? In this creative sequel to Ray Bradbury’s “The Rocket,” James Van Pelt imagines what happens when credulous children grow into skeptical adults.

Van Pelt has been nominated for the Nebula, Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Award, Pushcart Prize, and more. His limited-edition hardcover short story collection, THE BEST OF JAMES VAN PELT, is now available for preorder from Fairwood Press.

Science Fiction Robots Mars

What happens when you leave home and then, when you and the world have changed, you come back again? Writing this flash story for R.B. Wood's Word Count Podcast later inspired me to write the story "And You Shall Sing to Me a Deeper Song", published in Interzone #280.
