Dear discuss-lfm members,

Just to expand on the Robinson trilogy -- *Red Mars, Green Mars
and Blue Mars* that Bob Albrecht mentioned...

["I think that Kim Stanley Robinson's trilogy Red Mars, Green Mars, and Blue
Mars are the best science fiction books about a realizable fantasy..."]

This trilogy is truly a significant resource for those seeking
an excellent sci-fi series on Mars and it's colonization.  Red
Mars is the winner of the 1993 Nebula Award for Best Novel and
Green Mars wond the 1994 Hugo Award for Best Novel.  The books
are written for the older reader (high school level) and represent
a considerable reading goal for many youths at 572-600+ pages long.
As a cautionary note... there are a few (and I do mean *few*)
limited scenes dealing with more "mature themes".  

If you are a sci-fi lover, this trilogy will prove to be a
terrific read.  If you have advanced students, no doubt, they
too will find Robinson's reads exciting and some of the best
science fiction writing ever.

Thanks for sharing Mars-related resources, Bob.
