VLA hopes to be a community-run website. Contributions to the content and to the structure of the website itself are wanted and encouraged!

Some ways in which you can contribute:

· Register/Sign in MangalaWiki and help build a comprehensive encyclopedia on the works of KSR

· Help build a comprehensive interview list

· If you come across an article of interest concerning KSR, such as a noteworthy review or KSR-inspired art, do post it

· The same goes for articles of interest concerning related themes and issues : the environment, politics, science, history... the list is nearly infinite

· will host or link to content that is not exclusively focused on KSR. Sustainable living initiatives, social themes in science fiction, suggested writers and thinkers, if you've read KSR you know that nearly anything can be relevant.

Finally, you can also contribute with suggestions pertaining to the structure of the site. Should we add a gallery of inspired-by art? A workshop on topical international issues? A newsletter? Be creative! currently does not have a forum (it may have in the future).
Please use this post as a thread for suggestions in the comments below.

Not sure if you're familiar with NASA's World Wind; it's similar to Google Earth. One of the users created an add-on that shows many of the features discussed in the Trilogy:

Sun Symbiosis – by Forrest Sol

The following review of my unpublished first novel was written by the best-selling science fiction author Piers Anthony. It can be found in the June, 2010 newsletter on his website:

“I read Sun Symbiosis, by Forrest Sol, a pen name for a PhD in environmental science. This is presented as a novel, but is actually a book-length essay phrased as an extended interview. I had to tell the author that it really didn't work for me as a novel, because there is no human interaction other than between the interviewer and his subject, both male. A novel does better with a rich background of science or fantasy and a telling human story, preferably a romantic one, and perhaps a moral theme. An example is the movie Avatar. I'm not sure whether that was a novel first, but if so, it was surely a good one. Sun Symbiosis has the background, and is in fact a work of formidable imagination, and a moral theme: saving the environment. The author cle...

Hi, I am a big fan of your Mars trilogy. I have also read many of your earlier books. I paint and wondered if I could contribute to your books or webpage with my paintings.
I and a few other artists have a webpage called artistandalucia. If you put this in a search engine it will bring us up. I would especially like to paint schenes from the Mars trilogy.
Yours, Alan Pearson.

Not knowing what the above may portend I humbly abstain. First I am not a writer I am a muse. That is I freely give great ideas to writers for what it's worth. For example, RAH wrote the "Puppet masters" wonderful science fiction satire. Just imagine though if the slugs returned with a proposal that would allow humans to voluntarily accept symbionts for the benefits accrued from suddenly acquiring a super intellect and body control possible only with 4 pounds of additional
functioning grey matter. If the slugs agreed to a partnership rather than total control wouldn't some adventuresome people try it? Think of the possibilities as well as the risks. This is just one example of the myriad ideas I have to offer. I always wanted to try expanding on some of Heinleins stories. Or write an ode titled "TANSTAAFL". Catchy right? In the proper hands the commercial possibilities of continuing to right tales in the universe of Oscar Gorden or Lazarus Long. Of course my lockerf...
