  • The Bitterings arrive on mars. Harry the father, Corra the mother, David, Daniel, and Laura, the children. As soon as Mr Bittering steps out of the rocket he feels uneasy.
  • Dark They Were, and Golden-eyed
  • One afternoon Laura came crying into the settlement and said atom bombs hit New York! Harry asked, ''are you sure Laura? ''Were stranded on mars forever!'' she wept. Harry wanted to strike Laura, cry, ''No you're lying! The rockets will come back!
  • Mr. Bittering felt very alone in his garden. The wind blew a shower of peach blossoms fell on the martian soil. He picked one up and looked at it. Something was different about it as well as the carrots.
  • Harry wanted to build a rocket to go back to Earth because he thought Mars was bad for him.
  • No, I don't think so.
  • One day Harry and Corra were at a pool and Harry asked: Have your eyes always been yellow? and he eventually gave up on the rocket he was making.
  • Have your eyes always been yellow?
  • Five years later, a rocket fell out of the sky. Men jumped out of it shouting. ''We won the war on Earth! We're here to rescue you! But the American built town of houses was empty. The men found a flimsy rocket frame all rusted and no Earthlings.
