A Daring Trip To Mars by Max Valier:
Science Fiction Inventions, Technology and Ideas

Well-written tale of a, well, rather daring trip to Mars by a true rocketry enthusiast. Lots of interesting ideas, including the idea of using the moon as a refueling station on the way to Mars, and how to generate electrical power on the Moon without electronics. Not to mention steering between the nuclei of two great comets!
