V Spivey said I Love This Book. "Crimson Kings" is sort of a sequel to "The Sky People" but I read it first. It intentionally borrows tropes and imagery from Edgar Rice Burroughs and Ray Bradbury, but with Stirling's usual alternate history spin.Some reviewers criticized Stirling in "Sky People" for being sexist, but again, he was writing the kind of book ERB might have written had he been born in 1950 and Venus had turned out to be habitable. In "Crimson Kings," SPOILER ALERT the "damsel in distress" is actually the main male character and the tough-as-nails, omni-competent hero is female.

It evokes the SF that I used to read as a kid. His take on Mars is extremely interesting and very well thought out. His Martians are fascinating. I think that his "feral engines" is a brilliant SF concept, one of the best that I ever read. I highly recommend this book. I also recommend the other in the series "The Lords of Creation": The Sky People. I am looking forward to more books in this series.. Amazon Customer said Excellent!. Just as I enjoyed Burrough's Barsoom novels better than his Venus ones, I found Stirling's Burrough's-inspired Mars novel more fun than his Venus one as well.The dying planet Mars was very well realized and developed, the characters memorable, and the plot fast-moving.All in all, a very engaging page turner that I read in basically a single-sitting.

Stirling is the author of numerous science fiction and fantasy novels, including the popular Nantucket series that began with Island in the Sea of Time.Todd McLaren was involved in radio for more than twenty years in cities on both coasts. S. M. He left broadcasting for a full-time career in voice-overs, where he has been heard on more than 5,000 TV and radio commercials, as well as TV promos, narrations for documentaries on such networks as A&E and the History Channel, and

Stirling successfully creates a truly alien environment (Rugs crawled to envelop the feet), and his flair for the dramatic and obvious affection for the Mars of Burroughs, Brackett and Bradbury almost make up for his inclusion of pirates with eye patches, heavily armored guards riding fat-tired, self-propelled unicycles and other moments of near-parody. From Publishers Weekly Stirling's charming second pastiche of 1930s planetary romances (after 2006's The Sky People) moves from Venus to Mars, where different Terran factions vie to pick up the pieces of the Tollamune emperor's shattered realm. .

Venus is a primitive world. Now, in a new stand-alone adventure set in this world's 2000 AD, Jeremy Wainman is an archaeologist who has achieved a lifelong dream: to travel to Mars and explore the dead cities of the Deep Beyond, searching for the secrets of the Kings Beneath the Mountain and the fallen empire they ruled. By the year 2000, America, Russia, and the other great powers of Earth were all contending for influence and power amid the newly discovered inhabitants of our sister planets. Teyud Zha-Zhalt is the Martian mercenary the Terrans hire as guide and captain of the landship Intrepid Traveller. When these three meet, the foundations of reality will be shaken—from the lost city of Rema-Dza to the courts of the Crimson Kings.. Without coal, oil, or uranium, their technology was forced onto different paths, and the genetic wizardry of the Crimson Dynasty united a world for more than 20,000 years. Stirling's The Sky People, aliens terraformed Mars (and Venus) 200 million years ago, seeding them with life-forms from Earth. Humans didn't suspect this until the twentieth century, but when the first probes landed on our sister worlds and found life—intelligent life, at that—things changed with a vengeance. A secret links her to the deadly intrigues of Dvor il-Adazar, the City That Is A Mountain, where the last aging descendant of t
