9780007310166: Red Mars

The first novel in Kim Stanley Robinson's massively successful and lavishly praised Mars trilogy. 'The ultimate in future history' Daily Mail Mars - the barren, forbidding planet that epitomises mankind's dreams of space conquest. From the first pioneers who looked back at Earth and saw a small blue star, to the first colonists - hand-picked scientists with the skills necessary to create life from cold desert - Red Mars is the story of a new genesis. It is also the story of how Man must struggle against his own self-destructive mechanisms to achieve his dreams: before he even sets foot on the red planet, factions are forming, tensions are rising and violence is brewing...for civilization can be very uncivilized.

Review:

‘Red Mars is the ultimate in future history’
Daily Mail

'One of the undisputed leaders of the field in contemporary science fiction' Guardian

'If I had to choose one writer whose work will set the standard for science fiction in the future, it would be Kim Stanley Robinson...' New York Times

‘One of the finest works of American sf’
Times Literary Supplement

‘Absorbing, impressive, fascinating... Utterly plausible’
Financial Times

'A mighty trilogy... forecasting every detail and facet, triumph and tragedy, crucial breakthroughs and trivialities of humanity's colonization of another world'
Daily Mail

‘A staggering book. The best novel on the colonization of Mars that has ever been written.’
Arthur C. Clarke

From the Back Cover:

The Future History of Mars - Part One

1969: Neil Armstrong becomes the first man to set foot on the Moon.

2020: John Boone becomes the first man to set foot on Mars.

2027: The first mass-landing arrives on Mars.

It's the greatest challenge mankind has ever faced.

In 2027, the Ares, the biggest space-worthy craft ever built by man, reaches high orbit around Mars. Inside is a crew who will become the first one hundred people to land on the planet's surface.

Among them are the Russian team, led by the magnetic Maya Toitovna and radical socialist Arkady Bogdanov with their pragmatic engineer Nadia Cherneshevsky; Hiroko Ai - a Japanese biologist; and the Americans, led by Boone and the ambitious Frank Chalmers. Their mission: terraform a frozen wasteland with no atmosphere into a new Eden.

Their mission must succeed. The future of human civilization depends on it.
