Alice had been in Surgery far too long. Something had gone wrong. He was sure of it. He glanced at his watch. It would soon be dawn outside. To Mel Hastings this marked a significant and irrevocable passage of time. If Alice were to emerge safe and whole from the white cavern of Surgery she would have done so now.

Mel sank deeper in the heavy chair, feeling a quietness within himself as if the slow creep of death were touching him also. There was a sudden far distant roar and through the window he saw a streak of brightness in the sky. That would be the tourist ship, the Martian Princess, he remembered.

"As soon as I'm well we'll go to Mars for a vacation again," Alice would say. But now she was dying, and the surgeons said she was not even human. In his misery, Hastings knew two things: he loved his wife; but they had never been off Earth!

This is the first science fiction story by Raymond F. Jones I have ever read, so I don't know if it is typical of his work; but if it is, I am amazed his SF is not better known. Simply put, this terrifying novelette is one of the most powerful pieces of short SF I have read in quite some time. Originally published in Amazing Stories in 1961, this story seethes with a surrealistic sense of paranoia that reminds me very much of Philip K. Dick at his best. In fact, the plot of this story has very marked similarities to a famous story Dick wrote several years later. (I won't say which one, to avoid spoilers.)

Tom Shippey wrote in a recent review in the Wall Street Journal of a book by Tim Powers that "[m]ost fantasy authors aim at persuading you of the reality of their invented worlds. Mr. Powers makes you doubt the reality of your own." That is exactly what Jones does in "The Memory of Mars." Highly recommended.

Dated, but, a good SF read from a person that seems to fallen from SciFi history. I would recommend the book.. If you have ever seen the 50's vintage, "This Island Earth", Raymond F. Jones wrote the original book that the movie is based on. Given the time when this was originally written, it is definitely very original.

It was the first short story (or long) that I read from Raymond F. Jones and I really love it. It is a very intriguing story and kept your attention until the surprising end. It is a classic author of SF that deserves more attention than it has, his themes are focused on the human being and not in the technology. This story is about a guy that discover that his wife is an alien when she dies suddenly in a car accident. Look for more stories of Raymond F. Jones at Amazon, there are lots of public domain stories and most of them are excellent.

An exciting tale of space exploration with a twist that will keep the reader guessing till the finish. The reader delves into the unknown with some exciting possibilities.

A man becomes suspicious when his wife dies and it appears she wasn't human. Before her death she talked about a vacation to Mars which he can't recall. Creepy sci fi horror.
Dondallon
This classic SF short story is about a man who discovers his wife is an alien and that they took a trip to Mars he doesn't remember. It is a predecessor to "Total Recall" but done in the SF "Golden Age" flat characters and long explanations rather than action; that was acceptable then, but makes it dated and not too engaging now.

Interesting story; even though the premise was becoming obvious about halfway through, it was still a fun read. I liked the ending also. Very good; Thanks
Well written, it pulled me into its world and I kept reading until done.
Not all stories interest me enough to finish.
