A Barsoom and NSS Mars Match-Up
I've often said that it's a shame more NOSS (New Old Solar System) stories aren't published which incorporate interesting, modern astronomical discoveries into their plots. Admittedly it is a shame more NOSS stories aren't published generally, but I feel that there is a great amount of potential in stories which are, say, set in the frozen wastes of a breathable-yet-still-icy Europa.
What never occurred to me was the possibility of retroactively combining classic portrayals of planets with their real life counterparts. This would obviously be impossible with most stories, but it does seem to work rather well in the case of Mars and Barsoom.
But I'll not take the credit for this idea. I'm unsure if this is allowed, but I feel that the best way to enjoy the genius of this particular literary undertaking is to read it from the fellow who thought it up. Consequently, I now present you with a link to "Geographies of Mars I: Matching Mars and Barsoom, A New Approach" by Den Valdron.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
