This is Part 2 of a six-part response to Visions, Ventures, and Escape Velocities: A Collection of Space Futures, which is available for free from Arizona State University’s Center for Science and the Imagination thanks to a grant from NASA. I say “response” and not “review” because I intend to engage with the ideas presented from my own point of view.
Section II of VVEV is entitled Mars, and contains two short stories and two essays:
- The Baker of Mars, by Karl Schroeder
- Exploration Fact and Exploration Fiction, by Lawrence Dritsas
- Death on Mars, by Madeline Ashby
- Life on Mars?, by Steve Ruff
