The first exclusive Red Colony.com short story is here: The Man Without a Planet. Here's a clip:

Forty-three years. Had it been that long? It was just yesterday that lichen was spreading across these virgin hills, multiplying from one side of the planet to the other. Then the bugs came, and then the mice and birds. They weren't really birds, of course. They were rodents with wings, engineered in a laboratory to survive the harsh Martian conditions. But he thought they looked like them. Back then he had compared everything around him to Earth. They looked like birds because birds were part of him.
