Hello Cruel World

Lotsa news about Mars. Ambivalent myself.
Recommend Kim Stanley Robinson's trilogy Red Mars, Green Mars, Blue Mars. Apart from wonderful - fact-based - descriptions of the place, the story brings out a lot of the possible problems humans could bring to another "New World".
A very good 'hard' science fiction writer who does excellent character & story as well. There is just so much in these books, that I don't think I've got to all of it yet. I wonder how many of those 'classic' allusions I'm putting in myself?
