Kim Stanley Robinson’s “Mars” Trilogy Being Adapted For TV

Kim Stanley Robinson’s Mars series of books is being turned into a TV series by SpikeTV with Vince Gerardis (best known for Game of Thrones) producing. The series will take its name from the first novel in the series, Red Mars, and Robinson will consult on the series.

The Mars series explores the colonization of Mars, along with its terraforming.

I think its interesting how many book series are currently being optioned for TV, and likely it has everything to do with the success of HBO’s Game of Thrones.

Here’s hoping that they can replicate that success.

Trae Dorn has been staffing conventions for over twenty years, and is a co-founder of Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con. Trae also wrote and drew the now completed webcomic UnCONventional, and produces the podcasts BS-Free Witchcraft, On This Day With Trae, Stormwood & Associates, and The Nerd & Tie Podcast. This leads many to ask when the hell they have time to actually do anything anymore. Trae says they have the time because they “do it all quite poorly.”
