Synopsis: The final novel in the worldwide bestselling Mars trilogy, now part of the Voyager Classics collection. Mars has grown up It is fully terraformed -- genetically engineered plants and animals live by newly built canals and young but stormy seas. It is politically independent. A brave and buzzing new world. Most of the First Hundred have died. Those that remain are like walking myths to Martian youth. Earth has grown too much Chronic overpopulation, bitter nationalism, scarce resources. For too many Terrans, Mars is a mocking utopia. A dream to live for, fight for! perhaps even die for.

From the Publisher: 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.
