The Martian Way and Other Stories is a 1955 collection of four science fiction novellas by American writer Isaac Asimov, previously published in 1952 and 1954. Although single-author story collections generally sell poorly, The Martian Way and Other Stories did well enough that Doubleday science fiction editor Walter I. Bradbury was willing to publish a second collection, Earth Is Room Enough, in 1957.
