I am currently reading Green Mars after enjoying Red Mars. I must tell/ask you about something I read in National Geographic (7/11). In Red mars, KSR wrote of a "tethered elevator" between Earth & Mars. Well, it is discussed as a potential reality in the above Nat'l Geo on pages 34-35!!! Is there is any way to tell KSR about this? So cool!
Kimon |2011-08-14 19:51:56
Yes, the space elevator concept was not invented by Robinson and has been around for some time!

It was first used in fiction by Arthur C Clarke, in "The Fountains of Paradise"

Check out this annual conference:

And yes, it's extremely cool -- and the obvious way forward!

Fred Freundlich  - Invite KSR to Mondragon |2012-07-08 11:03:58
Hello. I teach at Mondragon University, which is affiliated with the Mondragon cooperative group KSR mentions a few times in the Mars Trilogy. I just read a review of his work in the American Prospect and it inspired me to try to invite him to visit Mondragon. :idea: Alas, I can't find a way to contact him or an agent. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Nice! I have your contact details, we'll see what I can do :wink:
Lori Crockett  - Wondering if KSR might be interested in coming to |2012-10-04 17:18:56
Hi,
The Mt Shasta Library is participating in the statewide, California Reads grant program, "Searching for Democracy." I was looking for potential authors to visit as part of the grant and a friend shared an article written in Shambhala Sun about KSR. The more I read (I am currently reading "Remaking History") and hear/see (I watched his talk last November in Texas), the more I am excited about his work and would love to see if he would be interested in coming to the Mt Shasta Library this fall. Our library has chosen to focus on Rebecca Solnit's "A Paradise Built in Hell," which is an inspiring, indepth, historical look at how people deal with disaster and can find meaning and purpose, as also expressed by Viktor Frankl in "Man's Search for Meaning," which she cites in her book.
The intent of this grant is to create meaningful dialog and community using literature, and I would love to bring the large sci fi group to the discussion table, using ...

Lori, thanks, I will relay this and keep you posted.

Hello,
I am organising a conference in Grenoble University (France) about new textual genres developing today in relation to climate change. I would love to invite Kim Stanley Robinson to talk about the novels he has written about climate change but can find no way of contacting him. Would there be any way you could advise me ?
Thanks !

Hi Kim,

I'm currently in the process of making a new space series for Discovery and there are a few stories that we would really appreciate your input on. Is there an email I could send you more information to?

Best
Adam
