Comments & Further Information

A first UK edition hardback.  Some light tanning to pages.  The dust jacket is complete, still shows the price, but is showing signs of wear at the extremities.

SYNOPSIS:  “How can we achieve a better world? White Mars is a unique collaboration between the novelist and science fiction writer Brian Aldiss and the distinguished mathematician and scientist Sir Roger Penrose. This startling and authoritative novel shows how a new society could be built, in doing so producing a beautiful and grim new myth.

Towards the end of the twenty-first century, a society of men and women a few thousand strong is marooned on our neighbouring planet, Mars.  Mars is being protected as a planet for scientific research and people live in great self-perpetuating domes.  The head of the colony sets out to create a perfect society on Mars, after economic collapse on earth leaves them cut-off.”
