Red Mars (Mars Trilogy, #1)

by: Kim Stanley Robinson

Publisher: Spectra (1993)

$8.99

Staff Pick by comrade: Lola

Personal relationships and conflicts weave beautifully with technical accomplishments in this vision of a terraformed Mars. Generations of Martian settlers are followed through the slow (and often controversial) efforts to make Mars habitable for life. You may find yourself wishing you knew some of the compassionately crafted characters in real life, or be reminded of folks you do know!
