Mars in Fiction
|cover by Karel Thole|
Born Under Mars by John Brunner (1967).
We can imagine an alternate universe in which a permanent European settlement might have existed on Newfoundland from 1000 BCE until the present.

In Brunner's fictional universe, enough time has passed since the original colonization of Mars for the inhabitants to have genetically diverged from the typical Earthling. For example, Brunner imagined that the residents of Mars were quite tall due to the low (37.6% of Earth's) gravity.

In the ecosystem of Thamber, there was another creature similar to the domesticated centipede-like mounts: the Dnazd. I imagine the relationship between the domesticated mounts and the Dnazd to be like a kitten compared to a lion.

This odd creature (see the image to the left) seems to be a fanciful candidate for an evolutionarily-advanced sea creature of Europa's ocean.
