Intro


Mars on a summer's day

The Colonisation of Mars, and its sequel, TCOM 2, are Science Fiction novels written by Larry Richardson.

Warning!! The Colonisation of Mars is not for those under fifty-five. If you are looking for Fifty Shades of Mars, look somewhere else. This book is about a one way trip to Mars in 2040 by 150 senior, 'expendable' scientists to finally establish a permanent Martian colony. It is a book about loss, about regret, and about being the last human on Mars, and serves as a cautionary tale to Mars astronaut wannabes.

Sam Aiken shuns the soft life with the others in the 'Tube'. He explores the polar caps, Valles Marineris, climbs 'The Face' and Olympus Mons, digs through the wreckage, cast-off equipment and graves of early explorers and finds an ancient Martian life form. As the last human alive he drifts through the Mars of Bradbury, Heinlein and others in search of sanctuary and comfort. He uncovers instead the shocking ruse behind the Colony and the ultimate reason why he was spared.
