Mars Trilogy By Kim Stanley Robinson Review

You could classify these books as hard science fiction, however they are also jam packed with philosophy. To me, this trilogy is obviously about the characters lives (Philosophical/political Soft Sci Fi) as well as the stages of terraforming. 454 more words

Blue Mars (Mars trilogy #3) (1996) by Kim Stanley Robinson

The characters of The Mars series are much like Martian volcanoes: flat and shallow at first glance, with little expectation beyond the short horizon. But the horizon deceives, and that gradual slope in development results in a surge that extends miles into the atmosphere. 915 more words
