(and look for the occasional green person).T
his book is recommended for the reader of any genre who is looking for a fascinating piece of literature.
Set in the far future after man and AI-kind have settled Mars, this is the story of a nowhere place called Desolation Road, a town started by one man, where nothing existed before, and nothing was EVER supposed to exist. Yet, as the city grows in size, the story grows in scope, to cover generations of the original inhabitants and their ancestors. Life, death, birth, war, deception, betrayal, religion, sex and love...
For lovers of cyberpunk, biopunk, and space opera.
