Three Californias - Kim Stanley Robinson

An omnibus edition of The Wild Shore, The Gold Coast and Pacific Edge.

The brilliant trilogy that launched the career of internationally bestselling SF author Kim Stanley Robinson.

Tor Essentials presents new editions of science fiction and fantasy titles of proven merit and lasting value, with each volume introduced by an appropriate literary figure.

Before Kim Stanley Robinson published the international bestsellers Red Mars, Green Mars, and Blue Mars, he made his reputation as one of SF's most trenchant thinkers with his Three Californias trilogy: three science fiction novels set in three different possible futures of Orange County, California. The Wild Shore is post-apocalyptic; The Gold Coast is manic if-this-goes-on future reminiscent of the work of Philip K. Dick; and Pacific Edge is a visionary green utopia Together, they form a whole that illuminates, enchants, and inspires.

This new Tor Essentials edition of Three Californias includes an introduction by Costa Award-winning novelist and literary journalist Francis Spufford, author of Red Plenty and the bestselling Golden Hill.
