BARSOOM PROJECT, THE.
by Larry Niven and Steven Barnes.
OVERVIEW: It is seven years later in the history of Dream Park, a theme park for role-playing games in an environment created by high-tech holograms. The current game is based on Inuit mythology, but the park is also hosting the Barsoom Project, testing the concept of a space elevator on Mars. Enter on one side a young woman who has been in a mental hospital after shooting a non-holographic opponent in her last game. Enter on the other side Muslim terrorists out to overturn the project. The result is fast-paced action, a rather large but well-drawn cast, even better-handled high tech, and a great deal of humor, some of it dark, some of it zany.
