The Ultimate Companion to the 'Mars' Trilogy.
All the colours of Mars . . .
The 'Mars' Trilogy has rapidly assumed the status of a modern science fiction classic, capturing the imagination of hundreds of thousands of readers around the world. Now Robinson has produced the essential companion to the trilogy.
New novellas and short stories head the collection, featuring many of the trilogy's central characters in events previously only hinted at in the novels. Added to this are texts on the Martian constitution, maps and works on Martian mythology, poetry, character histories, alternative scenarios to the events that actually took place in the trilogy and finally various pieces which the author omitted in the final edit.
'The Martians' is a unique collection of previously unpublished fiction, a fascinating addition to Robinson's oeuvre, and a must for all lovers of the red planet.
