In an earlier post, Inspiration, I mentioned how I came to consider a novel based on a revolution on Mars. This is hardly a new idea, but I spent a lot of time researching Martian geography and considering the economics of colonizing Mars. To some the colonization of Mars is a categorical imperative. To others it’s a waste of resources better spent on Earth. To me it has to stand or fall on whether is makes economic sense.
To that end I wrote a brief backstory for the revolt on Mars. I think it works. Please comment if you agree or disagree. You’ll find it at Life on Mars
