Abstract

Kim Stanley Robinson is one of the most highly-awarded science fiction (SF) writers anywhere, winning the Nebula and Hugo Awards with his Mars series (Green Mars, Red Mars, Blue Mars, and The Martians), among a dozen other novels and short story collections. Especially treasured by science fiction readers for his knowledge of "hard science, " he is often regarded by left-leaning readers as the successor to Ursula Le Guin, the peace- and ecology-minded writer famed since the early 1970s.
