       Additional Information  
      Although it doesn't live up to the praise lavished on it by such sci-fi masters as Arthur C. Clarke and Greg Bear, Mars Underground is a serviceable tale of life, work, and mystery on a near-future Mars. The year is 2031, and biologist Alwyn Stafford has disappeared during one of his unusual solo excursions into the desert. On his trail are Carter Jahns, reporter Annie Pohaku, and Phillipe Brach, Mars's artist-in-residence. Jahns learns that Stafford hasn't met a tragic end at all; rather, he has deliberately vanished. As the mystery unfolds--and the sexual tension between Jahns, Pohaku, and Brach peaks--it becomes clear that humans aren't the first visitors to the Red Planet.
