Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
is one of the giants of science-fiction. More than 2,000,000 of his books have been sold throughout the world. Twice Chairman of the British Interplanetary Society, he is the winner of the 1962 Kalinga Prize awarded by UNESCO for the popularisation of science.

It is the twenty-first century. On Mars a dedicated group of pioneers - among them some of Earth’s finest brains - struggle to change the face of a planet . . .

The Mars of this novel has no fabulous cities or exotic princesses; it is the planet which modern science has revealed to us, and the book’s authenticity provides a far greater excitement than would fantasy.

Against this background, Arthur C. Clarke has woven a thrilling story about a group of very real people, to show that, amidst the wonder of future science, human nature will stay very much the same.
