Pillars of Fire

Ian Steil is perhaps the most patient person I have ever met. In December of 2002, Ian began submitting pieces of his novel, Pillars of Fire. The novel began to take shape, and by last year was almost entirely finished. Unfortunately, due to a mix-up when we changed web-servers last summer, the book was lost and the file inadvertently deleted.

Ian waited and waited for us to correct the problem--which we did not--before finally sending an updated edition of Pillars of Fire a few weeks ago. As luck would have it, the novel was tossed around and misplaced.

Finally, after years of waiting, Pillars of Fire, the most widely anticipated original novel on Red Colony, has been released. This book is one of the most exciting, most unique, and most inspiring Mars novels ever written, and I urge you to give it a read. For all of his patience, Ian needs to be commended, but for what he has produced, he needs to be honored. Thank you so much for what you have contributed to the Mars community.
