    Joachim Wtewael : Mars and Venus surprised by Vulcan by Anne W Lowenthal( Book )
    5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 317 libraries worldwide
    The Dutch history painter Joachim Wtewael is widely admired for his astonishing small paintings on copper. The Getty Museum's Mars and Venus Surprised by Vulcan is one of his finest works in this unusually demanding medium. Though only eight inches high, this Mannerist painting contains eleven figures in three different spaces, captured in a dramatically charged moment from the famous story told by Ovid in his Metamorphoses. The author's detailed analysis of Wtewael's painting also serves as a fine introduction to Dutch art of the Golden Age. Illustrated with seventy reproductions of paintings, drawings, etchings, and decorative objects, Anne W. Lowenthal's study ranges over the broad historical and cultural context in which Mars and Venus was created

    On the planet Aqua, a world once known as Mars, Akari Mizunashi has just made her home in the town of Neo-Venezia, a futuristic imitation of the ancient city of Venice. The technology of "Man Home" (formerly Earth) has not entirely reached this planet, and Akari is alone, having no contact with family or friends. Nonetheless, the town, with its charming labyrinths of rivers and canals, becomes Akari's new infatuation, along with the dream of becoming a full-fledged gondolier. Reverting to a more "primitive" lifestyle and pursuing a new trade, Akari becomes both adventurous and independent all at once

Yet there is one last hope. Gifted in a way other humans can't, or won't understand, Cara Thornhart is the key to both this Horseman's safety and his doom. But involving Cara will prove treacherous, even beyond the maddening, dangerous desire that seizes them the moment they meet.

    Mars et les muses dans l'Apologie pour Hérodote d'Henri Estienne by Bénédicte Boudou( Book )
    3 editions published in 2000 in French and held by 115 libraries worldwide
    Traduction d'un livret en latin qui porte le même nom, cette apologie étend à l'actualité du XVIe les abus dont Estienne avait cherché des témoignages dans l'Antiquité pour accréditer la véracité de l'enquête d'Hérodote. Même s'il se plaît à dénoncer les turpitudes morales de son époque et l'obscurantisme intellectuel qu'a imposé l'Eglise catholique, son livre va bien au-delà de la polémique
    Boundary by Eric Flint( Book )
    2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 97 libraries worldwide
    What is a paleontologist doing on Mars? Pushing her boundaries. . . . Problematica, n: a term used in paleontology to refer to fossils that appear to be either of unknown taxonomic origin, or whose occurrence in the location they are found contradicts current beliefs of the field. The find was made by a teenager. A "funny fossil" no one had seen before out in the middle of the Arizona desert. And right in the middle of controversy: the strangely shaped fossil could help explain one of the greatest mysteries of Earth's past, the great die-off at the KT boundary. It warranted a big dig, one that could lead to the mother lode, and professional immortality. But what Dr. Helen Sutter didn't realize was that it would take her all the way to Mars. . .
