London, Harper Collins / Voyager, 1992-1996. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. One of the finest works on Mars ever written. Certainly a key work for any collection of modern science fiction, and Robinson is one of the most important contemporary writers. Collectively, the trilogy has won two Hugos, two Locus awards, one Nebula and one BSFA award. Broderick & Di Filippo feature the trilogy in their excellent 101 Best Novels (1985-2010), comparing it to a 20th Century War & Peace, not simply due to the length, but the depth of research and sheer scope of it [Broderick & Di Filippo, p92]. It is also, of course, in Andrews & Rennison's 100 Must-Read Science Fiction Novels - I wrote that sentence before checking [p112]. The series has been optioned for television more times than I can remember, but it hasn't yet gotten off the ground. A nice set. Three  volumes. A near fine set. Red Mars has a little spotting to the top edge, otherwise a very nice copy. Green Mars has a few marks to the top of the block and a couple of bumps to the spine. Blue Mars has a toned text block as is common. Cover art by Mel Grant [6422, Hyraxia Books].
