Take Your Summer Reading Out of This World with the Mars Trilogy!

The three award winning novels (Red Mars, Green Mars and Blue Mars) that make up the Mars trilogy begin in the near future and tell the story of the colonisation of Mars. The novels take us from the first hundred people that are sent to establish a human presence on the planet, through to their efforts to terraform Mars and later exist as an independent settlement.

The trilogy is immense in scope, very well researched, and based on the potentially possible. It covers the political, social and environmental aspects of forming a new colony on another planet.

Most importantly, this piece of speculative fiction is a page turner. There are memorable characters and plot lines that keep you hooked all the way from Red to Green to Blue.
