Sounds like I should give them a try.

Also, in the old days, when Weinbaum, Heinlein and Doc Smith and others wrote about the moons and planets in our solar system, they could write about alien flora and fauna under an open sky and get away with it.

Today we knows too much about all the moons and planets to write about stories like that (Titan could have an alien ecosystem, but too hostile against humans to make something like the old pulp stories).

The only exceptions are Mars and Venus. Despite what we know about them today, they are still similar enough to earth what distance to sun in concerned, and gravity and appearance, that it is still possible to write modern tales about the Mars and Venus that never was without making it sound too far out.
