Late author Kage Baker had a hot heart for Mars
Kate Baker Kathleen Bartholomew, the sister of the late well-known American science fiction writer KageBaker (1952-2010), recently posted a moving piece titled “The Hot Heart of Mars” on the blog Kathleen, Kage and the Company. It traces Kage’s interest in Mars over the years and mentions her novella The Empress of Mars (2003, free read!), short story “Where the Golden Apples Grow” (2006), and forthcoming short story “Attlee and The Long Walk,” which will be published in Australian editor Jonathon Strahan’s anthology Life On Mars, due out in April 2011.
