Champion of Mars

by Guy Haley
Release date: April 19, 2012
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction

In the far future, Mars is dying a second time. The Final War of men and spirits is beginning. In a last bid for peace, disgraced champion Yoechakenon Val Mora and his spirit lover Kaibeli are set free from the Arena to find the long-missing Librarian of Mars, the only hope to save mankind.

In the near future, a scientist running from a painful past, joins the Mars colonisation effort, cataloguing the remnants of its biosphere before it is swept away by the terraforming programme. When an artefact is discovered deep in the caverns of the red planet, the consequences ripple throughout time, affecting Holland’s present, the distant days of Yoechakanon, and the eras that bridge the aeons between.

Combining the imagination of Kim Stanley Robinson with the pace and excitement of Edgar Rice Burroughs, Haley’s blend of hard science and epic storytelling creates a vision of the Red Planet that is both recognisable and utterly alien.
