From Ray Bradbury, Lawrence Watt-Evans received permission and approval of this story. It combines Bradbury's Martian Chronicles with a little Burroughsian overtones, told from a tall-tale voice of one nineteenth-century Thomas Smith. Because of his fine windwagon on Earth, Thomas Smith is whisked off to Mars to race against the fastest racer on Mars.
Watt-Evans does a good job increasing tension and stakes of the race. Nice narrative voice, as well. This appears to be Watt-Evans' second-most popular tale.
Another Watt-Evans story mash-up is "Real Time", which mixes time travel and paradoxes with the unreliable first-person.
