Here’s a beautiful piece of science fiction history showing pioneering female science fiction writer Clare Winger Harris winning third prize in a late 1920’s Amazing Stories contest with her romantic tale “The Fate of the Poseidonia.” Published in the June 1927 issue, the story revolves around a Martian spy named Martell, who helps his home planet steal water from Earth’s oceans in order to save its dying civilization.
