Reviewed by BookList: /*STARRED REVIEW*/ The Mars novel so has burgeoned on the sf scene lately that it threatens to become a cliche, and many of the breed will not survive the passing of the trend. Robinson's effort will, however, and with its projected sequel, "Green Mars", will likely take a place among the major sf works of the decade. The story is basically simple. It concerns the first permanent settlement on Mars, a multinational band of 100 hardy experts, and their mission--to begin making Mars habitable for humans by releasing underground water and oxygen into the atmosphere. Unfortunately, they are divided over whether this is a desirable step in human evolution or an ecological crime. Robinson's prose is as good as usual, his scientific homework impeccable, and his handling of a large cast a model to many avowed saga mongers. The book deserves--and should receive--a large audience. ((Reviewed Jan. 1, 1993)) -- Roland Green
