Editorial Reviews

Review

“A uniquely rewarding experience of state-of-the-art science fiction.”The New York Times Book Review

“No one familiar with Robinson’s trilogy can read through these final, valedictory stories without feeling moved.”The Washington Post

“The stories are beautifully written, the characters are well developed and the author’s passion for ecology manifests itself on every page.”Publishers Weekly (starred review)

From the Inside Flap

Robinson's Mars trilogy is one of science fiction's most honored series, with Red Mars winning the distinguished Nebula Award, and both Green Mars and Blue Mars honored with the Hugo. A modern-day classic of the genre, this epic saga deftly portrays the human stories behind Earth's most ambitious project yet: the terraforming of Mars.

Now, following the publication of his acclaimed adventure novel, Antarctica, Robinson returns to the realm he has made his own, in a work that brilliantly weaves together a futuristic setting with a poetic vision of the human spirit engaged in a drama as ancient as mankind itself.

From a training mission in Antarctica to blistering sandstorms sweeping through labyrinths of barren canyons, the interwoven stories of The Martians set in motion a sprawling cast of characters upon the surface of Mars. As the planet is transformed from an unexplored and forbidding terrain to a troubled i

3.0 out of 5 stars Mass Paperback version has Quality Problems - typeface not 100% some characters missing INK
By D. Johnston on November 14, 2020
This review deals primary with the "quality control" of the reprinting of the Mass Paperback version of Robinson's The Martians with ISBN number 978-0-553-57401-2 (does the -2 at the end indicate a reprint?) Attached in this review are pictures I took of pages 4 and 36 of my copy. As you can see there are some words in the top third of these two pages have missing "INK" , some of the letters of the some of the words just are not fully formed when those pages were printed. In the enclosed pictures of page 4 and 36 taken with my smart phone, show in colored rectangles in these attached pictures shows a quality control problem of the reprint of the Mass Paperback. I went onto eBay and bought other copies that could read better.

As tot he content of the book, it is OK, some of the stories that never made it into the trilogy of Red, Green and Blue Mars are interesting for those of us that read the entire Trilogy. Some back stories are told and other midly interesting topics. Hence the review only gets 3 stars (also the quality control issues of the reprint also affected my review / rating). Every author needs an editor and I am assuming these just didn't make the cut. For good reason in some cases :) Still I am only about 62% done and look forward to the last third (hoping the INK problem has been solved - and to a larger degree, a few lines in the top third of some pages don't have the characters making up words on 1 or 2 lines per page , I can make out every word, it is just annoying to have to do so. So I bought used copies in hardback and trade paperback (but these copies were over 25 years old and are starting to yellow, for the trade paperback version from a UK publisher). It has been good to visit with Robinson's world concerning Mars. What is interesting in at least one of the articles, an alternative timeline is presented (as I saw in someone else's review). That in itself was interesting (and might upset other readers), specifically the short story of Michel in Provence doesn't not exactly line up with the books! Enjoy it , but be wary of the new mass paperback version, it will have either missing INK or fainter ink for some of the lines on the page than other lines.
