Discover’s Ten Best Science Fiction Planets

Last week, Discover Magazine’s blog posted a piece about the “10 Best Science Fiction Planets.” One of the planets that made the list: the Red, Green, and Blue Mars of Kim Stanley Robinson.

Discover senior editor Stephen Cass writes:
“Robinson’s Mars Trilogy has become the standard against which all hard science fiction books about Mars are weighed. Beginning in the near future, with the founding of the first permanent outpost on the red planet, and continuing for two centuries as Mars is terraformed, Robinson’s Mars is a meticulously researched and believable fictional version of our solar system neighbor.”

Kim Stanley Robinson will be a Guest of Honor at the 2010 World Science Fiction Convention in Melbourne, Australia.
