Product description


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

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

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

‘Red Mars may simply be the best novel ever written about Mars’

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


The first novel in Kim Stanley Robinson's massively successful and lavishly praised Mars trilogy. 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.
