A Mars of the imagination, like no other, in a colourful, witty SF
novel; Taking place in the kaleidoscopic future of Ian McDonald's
Desolation Road, Ares Express is set on a terraformed Mars where
fusion-powered locomotives run along the network of rails that is
the planet's circulatory system and artificial intelligences
reconfigure reality billions of times each second. One young woman,
Sweetness Octave Glorious-Honeybun Asiim 12th, becomes the person
upon whom the future - or futures - of Mars depends. Big,
picaresque, funny; taking the Mars of Ray Bradbury and the more
recent, terraformed Marses of authors such as Kim Stanley Robinson
and Greg Bear, Ares Express is a wild and woolly magic-realist SF
novel, featuring lots of bizarre philosophies, strange,
mind-stretching ideas and trains as big as city blocks.
