A new planet. A new battle. Same war.
After barely surviving his last tour on Mars, Master Sergeant Michael Venn finds himself back on earth in enforced isolation. Through a dangerous series of operations he returns to Mars to further his investigation into the Drifters--ancient artifacts suddenly reawakened on the red planet.
Greg Bear has a busy travel schedule this year, including participating on panels at several comic and science fiction conventions and teaching a workshop at Clarion West (be sure to reserve your spot soon!)
We have created a new Upcoming Appearances
section on the web site to keep track of it all.
FORGE OF GOD and MOVING MARS are both available for $1.99 each during the month of February as part of a Mars-themed promotion from Open Road Media. Lots of other fine titles, on the list, too!
