The True History

The True History
by Lucian of Samosata

Publisher: eBooks@Adelaide 2012
ISBN/ASIN: B0086HA6Y4
Number of pages: 356

Description:
Lucian of Samosata (125 - c.180) was a Greek satirist of Syrian or Assyrian extraction, and True History is perhaps his most well-known tale. In this tale, the protagonist visits the Moon, meets extraterrestrial creatures, and takes part in interplanetary warfare. This piece of fantastical fiction parodies many works such as Homer's Odyssey, and is certainly a contender for the title of earliest science fiction story.
