Several hundred years in the future, a depopulated Earth has become a tolerant, progressive paradise. What could be better—or duller? Meanwhile, Mars is home to New Austin, a freewheeling human colony fabled to make Las Vegas look like a meditation retreat. After breaking the polite laws of Earth, earnest schoolteacher Jordan Kincaid finds himself forced to relocate. It’s either life on Mars or life behind bars.

But what promised to be Xanadu is more like Blade Runner . . . only with more waiting in line. Trend-chasing hipsters and obnoxious tourists have swarmed into New Austin at the expense of poverty-stricken locals, all overseen by a greedy megamogul bent on transforming the city into a gentrified nightmare. When a sexy but sinister heiress seduces Jordan, he finds himself on the wrong side of a literal real-estate rebellion, as the filthy rich and dirt poor battle for control of the next hot neighborhood. Forget about keeping it weird, someone’s got to keep Mars from becoming a hell off Earth.

This book was initially released in episodes as a Kindle Serial. All episodes are now available for immediate download as a complete book.

About the Author:

Neal Pollack is an American satirist, novelist, short story writer, and journalist. Pollack has written nine previous books: The Neal Pollack Anthology of American Literature, Never Mind the Pollacks, Beneath the Axis of Evil, Alternadad, Stretch, Jewball, Downward-Facing Death, Open Your Heart, and Repeat. He’s also a three-time Jeopardy! champion. Pollack lives in Austin, Texas, with his wife and son.

Review:

“Pollack has written such tongue-in-cheek, self-referential literary hits as Never Mind the Pollacks and The Neal Pollack Anthology of American Literature. Now he’s writing a Kindle serial...set in a future where Earth has become boring and washed-up and Mars has turned into Austin, TX.” —io9
