Description
Winner of the Nebula Award for Best Novel * Discover the novel that launched one of science fiction's most beloved, acclaimed, and awarded trilogies: Kim Stanley Robinson's masterly near-future chronicle of interplanetary colonization. For centuries, the barren, desolate landscape of the red planet has beckoned to humankind. Now a group of one hundred colonists begins a mission whose ultimate goal is to transform Mars into a more Earthlike planet. They will place giant satellite mirrors in Martian orbit to reflect light to the surface. Black dust sprinkled on the polar caps will capture warmth and melt the ice. And massive tunnels drilled into the mantle will create stupendous vents of hot gases. But despite these ambitious goals, there are some who would fight to the death to prevent Mars from ever being changed. Praise for Red Mars "A staggering book . . . the best novel on the colonization of Mars that has ever been written." --Arthur C. Clarke "Absorbing . . . a scientifically informed imagination of rare ambition at work." -- The New York Times Book Review "Tremendous . . . a high-water mark in novels of Earth emigration." -- The Washington Post Book World
