Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

She is a daughter of one of Mars's oldest, most conservative Binding Multiples--the extended family syndicates that colonized the red planet. But Casseia Majumdar has a dream of an independent Mars, born in the student protests of 2171. During those brief days of idealism she forged bonds of friendship and hatred that set the stage for an astonishing war or revolution on Mars.

Greg Bear was born in San Diego in 1951. His father was in the navy, and by the time Greg was twelve years old, he had traveled with his parents to Japan, the Philippines, and various parts of the United States. He is the author of over twenty books, which have been translated into a dozen languages. He has won four Nebulas and two Hugos for his SF writing and was awarded the 2006 Robert A. Heinlein Award for outstanding published work in hard science fiction or technical writings inspiring the human exploration of space. Bear is married to Astrid Anderson, and they, and their two children, live near Seattle, Washington.
Hugo Award Nominee

She is a daughter of one of Mars's oldest, most conservative Binding Multiplesthe extended family syndicates that colonized the red planet. But Casseia Majumdar has a dream of an independent Mars, a notion born in the student protests of 2171. During those brief days of idealism she had forged bonds of friendship and hatred that set the stage for an astonishing revolution on Mars.

Charles Franklin was also caught up in those days of passion and youth. A brilliant physicist, and Casseia's first love, Franklin is so dedicated to science that he seeks to link his mind to the most advanced artificial intelligence in the solar system. Doing so will cost him a lifetime with the lovely Casseia. But it will teach him the secrets of space and time.

"Bear's Mars is one of the most vividly realized of the recent body of areological novels . . . He has the gift of implying a whole background with high-resolution but subtly-signaled background details."Locus

"Moving Mars is the best SF novel of the year [1993]."Science Fiction Chronicle

"Bear offers a fast-moving plot; realistic, appealing characters; a vividly imagined future Earth awash in 'tailored microbes'; nanotechnology; and dirty dealing. It all adds up to a blowout of a book . . . Certainly one of the best SF novels of the year."Publishers Weekly

"No one spins out ideas like Greg Bear. He explores the very frontiers of possibility, weaving tapestries of wonder. And yet, all of Bear's ideas, all the adventure and action, don't half compare to his finest creation yetthat treasure of a Martian, Casseia Majumdar."David Brin

"Strong characterization and compelling prose."Library Journal

"Stunning and remarkable invention and extrapolation."Kirkus Reviews

"Great characters, science, cultures, action. Moving Mars brings together all the things that make science fiction wonderful."Vernor Vinge
