Today's Tuesday Teaser comes from a science fiction writer I met during this year's A to Z Challenge.
Author: Martin T. Ingham
"When the time is right, the Martian colonies are going to declare their Independence from their Earth governments. Those of us on Villas Colony, and our counterparts here at Eridania, shall forge the basis of a new utopia," she said with rapture.
"How will you get our people on board? Teleport all thirty thousand colonists?"
I had several reasons for choosing this book: I was thrilled to find Martin Ingham, another science fiction writer and kindred spirit if you like. I'd also seen The Guns Of Mars whilst submitting short stories to various Pill Hill Press anthologies, and was planning to read a few of their novels to see if the standard was as high as for their anthologies. It seemed logical therefore to read Martin's book first.
I started reading it last night and I couldn't put it down - I'm already a third of the way through. I don't usually spend more than hour or two reading at a time, so for me to be this far into a book in just one sitting says a tremendous amount about how much I am enjoying it. The Guns Of Mars is the kind of sci-fi novel I want to write and see published, and I highly recommend it to all science fiction fans.
