Is this the Pont d'Arc in southern France?

Yes it is, and nearby is the famous Chauvet cave! So the novel is set in prehistoric times?

On the phone with Davis-based science-fiction novelist Kim Stanley Robinson, whose "Mars" and "Three Californias" series are legendary in the genre.

"I'm finishing a novel set in the ice age, about the people who made the paintings in the Chauvet-Pont-d'Arc Cave in southern France, about 32,000 years ago," he said. "I do a lot of snow camping in the Sierra, and I put my snow knowledge into it and tried to explain how we became who we are now.

"It's only science and archaeology that allow us to write historical fiction with any accuracy," Robinson added. "So it's kind of science fiction in a way."

The title? "My publisher and I are still discussing that," he said. "It will be out in September. In the meantime, I'll bash away at something else."

The man is a machine! 2312 was no small book, and he has another coming out just a year later? Wow.

Ah, the Pont d'Arc ! (It's not very far from my hometown, and it was a popular destination for me and my friends when we were teens -- ride your bicycle for three hours, swim and sunbathe for the rest of the day.) This is a novel I'm looking forward too, as with everything Stan writes.
