G-664 BORN UNDER MARS vg
Born Under Mars
By John Brunner
Cover by John Schoenherr
Ray Mallin returned from the stars to find his home-planet Mars had fallen shockingly into decay and apathy. Once Mars had been the great hope of the Solar System, where men came out from Earth to test their strangth and adaptiveness on a harsh new world. Now the progress of mankind had passed Mars by, and she had become a second-class planet, her Mars-born humans only dead-end mutations.
But Ray had no time to ponder the desperate situation of his world, for as soon as he landed he was abducted by agents of one of the star-empires and was put through brutal torture sessions to make him talk about his last voyage. While recovering from the wounds inflicted there, he sought his aged Martian mentor for guidance --- and found instead more treachery, intrigue and danger, and a secret which could affect the destiny of humanity.
