Do you want to know more about the series?
Red Desert is a hard science fiction series set on Mars. It includes many elements of science mixed with character’s introspection, action, suspense, adventure, and a technothriller soul à la Michael Crichton.
Inspired by the work and books by Dr. Robert Zubrin (founder of the Mars Society) and the work of NASA and ESA’s Mars exploration missions, this series aims at entertaining you and spread the word about the need to explore and colonise the Red Planet.
You’ll get to know Anna and the other characters and you’ll almost feel the red dust on your fingers.
Red Desert has been awarded by Wired Magazine Italia as one of the 10 best self-published works in Italy.
“Beautiful, introspecting, intense science fiction. In the end, the real planet to be explored is us.” - WIRED.it

I’m immersed in a deafening silence, only broken by the noise of my breath and the beating of my heart, resounding in my ears. The day is coming to an end. The sun is approaching the horizon. It will set in a little while together with its warmth.
