Science Fiction / Memoir

"I was never meant for this world. We've known this was coming; I'm headed back to Mars. I've heard opportunity never knocks twice but I'm trying my luck at Life on Mars once again. Perhaps curiosity has gotten the better of me, or maybe I didn't learn my lesson the first time. As I immerse myself in the fast-paced Martian high-life I'll continue to share my adventures (though I'm aware I write to a generation that may not read anymore).

With my trusty droid and faithful feline at my side, I prepare to depart for the red planet. As they call our group to board the rocket I wonder Will I achieve fame and stardom or have I embarked on another mad odyssey across Mars? "

An Earthling’s story of living on Mars, told through collected journal entries and transmissions back to Earth. Follow the tale of Klay Lane as he pursues the Martian Dream, battles the challenges of our technological society, and desperately avoids another potentially boring evening on the world of opportunity. Revel in his adventure, marvel in his mischief, and maybe learn a lesson or two to help you survive the modern wasteland.

Is There Life on Mars? By Kyle O Street is a Science Fiction themed satire of the American Dream, California, and the social struggles of a world becoming more futuristic each day. The Martian Dream (and Other Lies!) continues the displaced Earthling's saga, taking place on the planet Mars, it chronicles the life of the author during his search for fame and fortune in the land of dreams, and the odyssey that ensued in their pursuit. Is There Life on Mars? is a modern epic for a generation losing itself to vanity, greed and consumerism which could benefit from a critical examination of what makes us believe we are different and what it means to be human.
