Life on Mars

If the good folk at Amazon are to be believed, five days after my brother’s next birthday Viking will publish Life on Mars: Tales from New Frontiers, a book that I’ve dedicated to him.  I would like to share the gorgeous Stephan Martiniere cover with you (it’s every bit as lovely as the piece he did for The Starry Rift), but I don’t have clearance to do that yet so here instead as something to whet your appetite is the table of contents for the book:

1. “Attlee and the Long Walk”, Kage Baker
2. “The Old Man and the Martian Sea”, Alastair Reynolds
3. “Wahala”, Nnedi Okorafor
4. “On Chryse Plain”, Stephen Baxter
5. “First Principle”, Nancy Kress
6. “Martian Chronicles”, Cory Doctorow (novella)
7. “Goodnight Moons”, Ellen Klages
8. “The Taste of Promises”, Rachel Swirsky
9. “Digging”, Ian McDonald
10. “LARP on Mars”, Chris Roberson
11. “Martian Heart”, John Barnes
12. “Discovering Life”, Kim Stanley Robinson
