Mars 27: Catalyst on the Plains

Christopher Birkbeck, or Babbler36 on the forum, has written the beginning of a new novel entitled, Mars 27: Catalyst on the Plains. Here's a snippet:

The sun was setting over the reddish-pink sky and flat lands bellow. The temperature was bellow freezing. In fact, it was cold as Antarctica literarily. Yet, the sky was full of carbon dioxide, a gas that traps heat warm up an area, yet did nothing. The ground was rust (or ferrous oxide to use the scientific term). This was Mars, fourth planet from the sun, its star. The land was a seeming desert, a place that did not deserve study, much least inhabitation. The planet seems to have rejected life. And all living things that could survive had to live a harsh and unforgiving existence.
