"The Martian" ~ Sad 1930's story by Hilliard & Glasser about desiccation of red planet
Thanks to another generous fan of old magazines at the Internet Archive, you can read or download “The Martian,” a science fiction novelette penned by A. Rowley Hilliard and Allen Glasser, with beautiful interior artwork by pioneering pulp artist Frank R. Paul, as it was originally published in the Winter 1932 issue of Wonder Stories Quarterly magazine.
