Written by a second century Greek writer and widely thought to be the first science fiction story, A True Story by Lucian of Samosata is about a war to rule the Morning Star by the kings of the Moon and the Sun. Some of its notable characters include dog-faced men fighting on winged acorns, cloud-centaurs and stalk-and-mushroom men.
