About this product
- DescriptionSeveral hundred years in the future, a depopulated Earth has become a tolerant, progressive paradise. What could be better-or duller? Meanwhile, Mars is home to New Austin, a freewheeling human colony fabled to make Las Vegas look like a meditation retreat. After breaking the polite laws of Earth, earnest schoolteacher Jordan Kincaid finds himself forced to relocate. It's either life on Mars or life behind bars. But what promised to be Xanadu is more like Blade Runner...only with more waiting in line. Trend-chasing hipsters and obxious tourists have swarmed into New Austin at the expense of poverty-stricken locals, all overseen by a greedy megamogul bent on transforming the city into a gentrified nightmare. When a sexy but sinister heiress seduces Jordan, he finds himself on the wrong side of a literal real-estate rebellion, as the filthy rich and dirt poor battle for control of the next hot neighborhood. Forget about keeping it weird, someone's got to keep Mars from becoming a hell off Earth.
