Puzzle 8 – “Life on Mars”

puz here / pdf here / solution here

Another 15×15 themeless. Seed entry here was 41-Across; the puzzle title is the book referenced in the clue. Favorite clues here: 3-Down, 40-Down, 57-Down… also love that bit of trivia in 56-Across. Plus I get a kick out of this one’s top 4 rows–read straight across as absurd phrases, I dunno, I’m amused. As always, feel free to comment, and hope you enjoy!
