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.

Book Excerpts

Read an Excerpt

Part One
 
 
The young may not remember Mars of old, under the yellow Sun, its cloud-streaked skies dusted pink, its soil rusty and fine, its inhabitants living in pressurized burrows and venturing Up only as a rite- of passage or to do maintenance or tend the ropy crops spread like nests of intensely green snakes over the wind-scoured farms. That Mars, an old and tired Mars filled with young lives, is gone forever.
Now I am old and tired, and Mars is young again.
Our lives are not our own, but by God, we must behave as if they are.

Praise for Moving Mars

"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 yet--that treasure of a Martian, Casseia Majumdar!" --David Brin

"Strong characterization and compelling prose." --Library Journal

"Stunning and remarkable invention and extrapolation." --Kirkus Reviews

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