Its survivors have colonized Mars, while Earth’s
outcasts -- the criminals, miscreants, fringe-dwellers,
and sociopaths -- fled inward, to Venus.
Three generations later, the Mars colony has replicated
the worst of the world they left behind: avarice, gluttony,
and a thirst for power… while the denizens of Venus, strengthened
by hardship forged in brutality and hellish conditions, thrive.
And now, Mars turns its attention
to lovely Venus.
