Archaeology and identity theft on Mars

Identity-Theft Arrest in Dispute Over Dead Sea Scrolls,” an article in yesterday’s The New York Times, reminds me of two Martian SF developments:

• Paizo Publishing’s reprint of The Sword of Rhiannon (1953), a novel by Leigh Brackett, is scheduled to be released this month. The main character is Matthew Carse, a Martian archaeologist.

• Robert J. Sawyer’s “Identity Theft” (2005), an award-winning, hard-boiled detective novella set on Mars, is under option to be adapted into a live-action, full-length Hollywood film.
