The following quote is from Space.com:
"While Earth may be wracked by the consequences of climate change in 300 years, humanity might have moved on to occupy the planets, moons and asteroids of the solar system. That's the vision presented in a new novel by science fiction heavyweight Kim Stanley Robinson called '2312,' out May 22 from Orbit Books."
This new book looks to be some excellent food for thought for Space 2099. While I don't agree much with the political perspectives of KSR, I love his writing about space. Perhaps Jace might look KSR up and discuss Space 2099 with him?

I've often thought that Kim Stanley Robinson's Mars trilogy could be a model used for Space: 2099. A group of people stranded, essentially, on an alien moon/planet, having to eke out a living, fighting and coping with and loving each other.
