Editorial Reviews

Review

"The book is filled with wonderful descriptions of science and technology that will be required for space travel, building a colony on Mars, and exploring. It also has colorful descriptions of emotions experienced by the settlers. Frustration and anger show up more frequently than fear and joy.There are instances of satisfaction when something new is accomplished. I particularly liked the fact that the botanist is proud to show off her new cannabis plants; she had brought the seeds with the intention of using the plants to make a soothing tea for times when there is excess stress... The cat often shows up to entertain by chasing bits of material floating around,scratching the fingers of settlers playing with him (no "cat scratch fever," I assume) swiping at the tilapia that are being grown in a tank, and just acting like a cat in general.

"There are also moments of tenderness and hints of romance. The women have chips implanted to prevent pregnancy unless they chose to deactivate them.There is no sex described, but embryos have been transported to mars that can be used when it is time to begin populating the colony with children." Farrel. D. Hobbs

From the Author

Mars is becoming a real place for us Earthers. Our satellites circle the planet and our rovers explore the surface. Private organizations are seriously planning human missions - especially one-way colonization missions. Mars-One, The Mars Society, and SpaceX are all taking serious aim at placing humans on Mars - permanently - in our lifetimes.

I couldn't ignore this opportunity to take science fiction to Mars - to the real Mars we know more about every day. I'm fascinated - what will it be like to be the first colonists? Why do they go? Given the shrinking concentration span of the media and popular culture, what will happen when Earth stops supporting the colony? Even the groups planning one-way missions don't seem to talk much about the long-term - how will a colony be able to expand, raise children, and make Mars their home? I give my colony some robotic and Artificial Intelligence technologies that are not yet on-the-shelf, but their survival is still tenuous.

I think Mars will be very difficult to colonize, but humans persevere and build their lives wherever they find themselves, despite dangers from other people and the hostile planet. Read the On Mars series, starting with Glory on Mars, to join them.
