Synopsis :

Winner of the Hugo Award for Best Novel ? Soon to be a series on Spike TV
 
One of the most enthralling science fiction sagas ever written, Kim Stanley Robinson?s epic trilogy concludes with Blue Mars?a triumph of prodigious research and visionary storytelling.
 
The red planet is no more. Now green and verdant, Mars has been dramatically altered from a desolate world into one where humans can flourish. The First Hundred settlers are being pulled into a fierce new struggle between the Reds, a group devoted to preserving Mars in its desert state, and the Green ?terraformers.? Meanwhile, Earth is in peril. A great flood threatens an already overcrowded and polluted planet. With Mars the last hope for the human race, the inhabitants of the red planet are heading toward a population explosion?or interplanetary war.
 
Praise for Blue Mars
 
?A breakthrough even from [Robinson?s] own consistently high levels of achievement.? ?The New York Times Book Review
 
?Exhilarating . . . a complex and deeply engaging dramatization of humanity?s future.? ?The Philadelphia Inquirer
 
?[ Blue Mars] brings the epic to a rousing conclusion.? ?San Francisco Chronicle

Note de l'éditeur:

Kim Stanley Robinson's Mars trilogy burst upon the science fiction scene in 1992 with the publication of the #1 bestselling, Nebula Award-winning Red Mars. Critics and fans alike instantly hailed the novel as a modern classic, and the New York Times declared that Robinson had "virtually invented a new kind of science fiction." Two years later, with the publication of Green Mars, Robinson cemented his reputation as the brightest new star on the hard science fiction horizon, winning the Hugo Award and receiving dozens of reviews that alluded to the novel's "breathtaking scope" and "intellectual daring."

Now comes the much anticipated conclusion to this spectacular saga. The colonists on Mars have nearly succeeded in transforming or "terraforming" the red planet to produce a liveable Earth-like atmosphere. Oceans dot the surface, as do gigantic, diaphanous tents that are intended to preserve areas of Martian wilderness in their original state. Meanwhile, on Earth, humankind is struggling to survive the floods of melting polar ice caps, while on Jupiter and Saturn, early terraforming efforts have just been launched. Then a new ice age imperils the Martian civilization, and the First Hundred colonists and their Martian-born children must hurdle the final, awesome obstacles to the creation of their infant civilization.

Praise for Red Mars:

"A high water mark ... a tremendous achievement."--The Washington Post Book World

Praise for Green Mars:

"With Robinson's epic now two-thirds complete, it is becoming clear that this could become a work, like Asimov's Foundation trilogy, against which all future literary extrapolations of mankind's destiny are compared."--Science Fiction Eye

Kim Stanley Robinson lives in Davis, California, where he is at work on a new science fiction novel entitled Antarctica.
