Présentation de l'éditeur

"The Earth-Mars Chronicles" are the closest thing to being there this side of "The Martian," which is, by the way, one of the top 10 books I have read in the past 63 years. I hope the movie does it justice. Anyway, I wrote "The Chronicles" in order to fill in a gap in modern day science fiction. The unbounded gap involves the entire solar system as far as venue is concerned, and the prose of Heinlein, Clarke, Stine, and other pioneers as far as style is concerned. I have been humbled that some readers have sensed these things and have mentioned them in their reviews.
"The Chronicles" follows the lives of ordinary and extraordinary people as they first fight to survive (both as a species and as a civilization) the interstellar onslaught of asteroid and comet-like bodies (Volume 1), and then to establish long-term survival settlements on Mars (Volume 2). Volume 3 (Part 1 and Part 2 are available, Part 3 is in process) moves the story of Mars and its new generations of Mars-born Settlers into the fight for recognition, self-sustainment, and independence, culminating with the collapse of civilization on Earth. The Martian Settlers become the keepers of the light of knowledge and history, and Mars becomes the Haven for Humanity.
"Volume 4, Homecoming for Humanity" (in planning), will delve into the problems confronting the future generations on Mars who strive to assist those warrens of humanity on Earth laboring to protect and maintain conclaves of civilization in a world gone mad.
There is substantial benefit that accrues to a writer (that would be me) who has defined a universe of planets, populations, space infrastructure, transportation, etc. These elements provide the stage for new characters and new adventures and/or challenges. I took advantage of that situation when penning "Butterscotch Dawn" (available now as e-book or paperback) and "Martian Sniper" (Pre-Publication special of $0.99 for Kindle until 1 October).
"Butterscotch Dawn" is a short novel of adventure and survival as a two-person team attempt to get home from the North Pole after the mother of all dust storms settles in all over Mars. Speaking of mothers, one of the crew is going to be one, except she did not know it when they left Bradbury Settlement. I think it is a very warm but gut wrenching adventure.
"Martian Sniper" is the first book in a series titled "A War for Cousins." The time frame is about 200 years after the establishment of NewHome, the first settlement on Mars as described in Volumes 2 and 3 of "The Chronicles." Although the population of Mars numbers less than one million, the planet and its population have substantial influence over economic and social recovery on Earth. This rubs a number of people on Earth the wrong way while an internal struggle takes place on Mars for control of the planet’s resources. Paris Bresneva never wanted any responsibility beyond selecting the evening’s beer and finding a woman who would put up with him for a while. His life changed rather quickly. Many others would, also.
So settle in with any of these stories and hang on for the ride. The future of Mars has hardly begun!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 I hope Volume 2 is just as timely as Volume 1 29 avril 2013
Par K. Heinchon - Publié sur Amazon.com

I'm a little biased since I think that humanity is past due for inhabiting another rock in space. However, I think a scare similar to what this fictional book describes may be what it takes to kick things into gear. We can only hope that it won't be too late. I finished reading this book back in February, but I prefer to let things settle and sink in before reviewing it on Amazon.

Character development - The characters are well developed and you have your share of likable and unlikable characters. It also has your questionable characters and surprises.
Plot development - As I mentioned above, there are plenty of surprises to keep you anticipating what comes next. Also, you can tell that the author put a lot of research into this book. For the most part, he managed to keep everything believable. Even though it is in the future, there isn't really any 'new' technology other than advances in existing technology.
Scriptability - I made this word up, but I think that this book could easily transition to a movie script. I don't know if that is a goal of the author's, but instead of a Mind's Eye, I use Recall to visualize things that I read, so that is something that I notice easily when reading.

Holes - I realize this is Volume 1 of Many, but there were several unanswered questions at the end of this book that could have been answered without reducing the anticipation for Volume 2.
That's it. If it weren't for these holes, I would have easily given this 5 stars.

For a first time author, I was very impressed. It almost inspired me to start working on my own book, but I'm not quite ready to delve into that much research yet.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good science and pontification 26 avril 2014
Par Kenneth Ross - Publié sur Amazon.com

The author used valid scientific bases and researched his material well.
The storyline, however, was weak, with characters insufficiently developed and with important, potentially interesting plot lines left to wither. This sorely lacked action. I enjoyed the science, but the characters' nearly insipid dialogue and the weakness of the storytelling will keep me away.
The three stars are warranted by the good research and space-related scientific accuracy.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Less detail, please 18 avril 2014

I would love to give this book more than 3 stars because its beginning was excellent--a group of asteroids are approaching earth; many will strike the USA; brilliant scientists and caring politicians will collaborate to help.

Then we have the middle of the book. There is a detailed, extremely detailed, explanation of how to colonize Mars. The plot of the book evaporates during the plans laid by the main characters to save humanity.

The author needs a good editor to keep him on track. If he wants to tell us how to build a Martian colony, then put that as an addendum and not as page after page of why this works and this doesn't.

Finally, we reach the end. After all the anticipation of landfall, after all the descriptions of what might happen...nothing. Perhaps I should say,"Very little."

This began as an exciting book and ended with a whimper.

I enjoy logical, scientific explanations for events in SF novels. However, the author has to walk a fine line between explanation and lecture. This author crossed the line.

The book has brilliant potential. It is ckear the author wants NASA to teach its former glory, as do I. He wants us to settle the moon, as do I. With a book more tightly plotted, he can encourage others to see the value in space exploration.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Much more than a story about Mars 13 juin 2013
Par Kindle Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I enjoyed this book and I think Gerald Driggers is an up and comming author who I hope we will see a lot more of. The book is true science fiction but it stays at the human level. The characters are easy to care about and some of them you love, some you hate, and some you just pitty. Its obvious Mr. Driggers spent time at an engineering firm because he is spot on with design proceses and the almost comical stress that goes into design reviews. In this first installment Driggers lays the foundation for the motivation to go to mars. He does not treat this lightly and explores sociological, political, and even religous aspects of the issue. Unfortunately there is no second book as of this writting. In April the author told me he was delayed by a family issue but planned to publish in May. So perhaps the next installement will be soon.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A very real possibility 13 avril 2014
Par Capot - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I really liked this book. Though it's a work of fiction it could very well be something of a reality in the near future. The characters in the book were very well thought out as well as the storyline. As someone who watched the first moon landings I like the idea of a colony on Mars. Looking forward to reading the 2nd part of this series. I'd definitely recommend this book to anyone.
