A galaxy-altering scientific breakthrough on Mars inspires treachery and revolution in this Nebula Awardâ€“winning science fiction epic.
The child of one of the oldest, most revered family-corporate units on colonized Mars, Casseia Majumdar has spent her entire life in the tunnels that run beneath the surface of her homeworld. As a young college student in 2171, the fifty-third year of the Martian settlement, she experiences a profound political awakening, and her embrace of radical activism only intensifies following a failed diplomatic mission to Earth.
As she rises up through the political ranks back on Marsâ€”with tensions increasing between an oppressive â€śMother Earthâ€ť and her rebellious â€śRed Rabbitâ€ť childrenâ€”Casseia soon realizes that an enlightened ideology alone will not save her planet and its people.
But it is a staggering scientific discovery by Martian physicist Charles Franklinâ€”Casseiaâ€™s mentor and former loverâ€”that will ultimately reveal the depths of the perfidy of the â€śTerries,â€ť forcing an imperiled civilization to alter forever the map of the universe.
A two-time winner of the Nebula Award and a multiple Hugo and Arthur C. Clarke Award nominee, the great Greg Bear has been called â€śthe complete master of the grand scale sf novelâ€ť (Booklist). His Moving Mars is a masterful extrapolation of contentious humanityâ€™s possible future and a modern classic to be shelved alongside the acclaimed Mars novels of Ben Bova and Kim Stanley Robinson. Itâ€™s â€śas good as hard science fiction getsâ€ť (The Oregonian).
