The Mars Imperative

Mars is like a frontier town, filled with prospectors and mining camps. It’s a place of deadly dust storms, rockslides,  and near-vacuum atmosphere. And then there’s the terrorist. The story is chock full of technology, from hyperplanes to space elevators. There's even a literal leap of faith (in space).


When young James McKie leaves for his first job in space, he has no idea what he’s getting himself into. Traveling to Mars is harrowing enough. Surviving once he gets there is another matter entirely. Yet there is a discovery waiting to be made, one that could open Mars to human colonization—if it doesn’t kill everyone first.
