Kim Stanley Robinson has earned a reputation as the master of Mars fiction, writing books that are scientific, sociological and, better still, fantastic. Green Mars
continues the story of humans settling the planet in a process called "terraforming". In Red Mars
, the initial work in the trilogy, the first 100 scientists chosen to explore the planet disintegrated in disagreement--in part because of pressures from forces on Earth. Some of the scientists formed a loose network underground. Green Mars
, which won the 1994 Hugo Award, follows the development of the underground and the problems endemic to forming a new society.
‘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 Book Review
‘One of the finest works of American sf’
‘No other Martian epic comes close: a novel of splendid characters in a brilliantly realized and utterly convincing setting’
