RED MARS was first published in September 1992 (HarperCollins, UK) and received a wider release in February 1993 (Bantam Spectra, USA), thus beginning the release of the MARS trilogy.

To celebrate this anniversary, Ludovic Celle has created the montage below! You can find a higher definition version of that image here, or on Ludovic's Da Vinci Mars Design blog.

Upon searching Jevons' Paradox in several sources, the actual definition of this term is: "The efficiency with which a resource is used increases the rate of consumption of that resource."

Mr. Robinson's interpretation of this paradox therefore seems to be rather a wide extrapolation from the basic statement. I would be interested to learn how he arrived at his interpretation -- just through observation of the amount of human history he has lived through and what he projects will happen, or through some other analysis.

Thanks very much for any clarification that can be provided.

Let me conclude that I have read every one of Mr. Robinson's books to date, and had the pleasure of a brief introduction at Con'spiracy the 1987 World Science Fiction Convention, in Brighton England. At the time he was ...
