It's always interesting to read stories set in a future date that has passed. But it's dang good. ( )

In order to send a man to Mars to get things ready for humans to colonize, the PTB decide that they need to change him into a Martian.
An interesting story that deals with the limitations on the meaning of humanity, and as a bonus it had a twist that I didn't at all see coming. ( )
