Free fiction: Arthur Clarke's "Travel By Wire!" & "How We Went to Mars"

Both are early fun stories of Clarke, both among his good ones.

  1. "Travel by Wire!"; download: A materialization/dematerialization device that transports things & people over telephone wires! This is, I think, his first published story.
  2. "How We Went to Mars"; download (need to scroll down the page): Teen adventurers "accidentally" end up on Mars rather than having just a local trip in their neighborhood (in their home-built rocket)!

the link for how we went to mars appears to no longer be correct - can't find this story there for free (or at all)
