1949 Dell "map back" Mars anthology depicts "The Million Year Picnic" by Ray Bradbury

Selected by Orson Welles
(U.S.: Dell Publishing, 1949) #305, paperback
Cover art by Malcolm Smith


  1. I used to own a copy of this book, which was most notable for containing the radio script for Orson Welles' production of WAR OF THE WORLDS. I must have given the book away at some point, as I haven't seen it for years. But I have absolutely no recollection of that "Million-Year Picnic" map! Maybe I had a different edition.

  2. Phil: You gave it away? Are you crazy?
