In his groundbreaking Mars trilogy, Kim Stanley Robinson imagined a world where geo-engineering made life on the red planet a possibility. His latest masterpiece turns its attention to Earth.

In conversation with James Bradley (Ghost Species), Kim appears live via video to discuss the relationship between hard science and strong storytelling, a sense of the challenges facing us and the possibility of hope.
