Dear David and Mars adventurers,

I think Kim Stanley Robinson's *Red Mars*, *Green Mars*, and *Blue Mars* are
by far the best novels about the colonization and terraforming of Mars. I
like Ben Bova's *Mars* as the best novel about a go and return scientific
mission to Mars. All these books are carefully researched "hard" science
fiction with good science and good technology, as well as great plots,
character development, et cetera, et cetera.

We know now that H.G. Wells's *War of the Worlds* is science fantasy rather
than science fiction, as are many other great older novels about Mars.
