After the success of the first book, Dream Park, a sequel almost had to follow. Niven and Barnes make this one another murder mystery set in their near-future adventure/theme park. The technology changes a bit in this one, as the passing years showed they were either on the wrong track or ahead of their time in 'Dream Park'. An interesting near future mystery which will be of interest to any online gamer or fan of near future fiction. ( )

A somewhat intriguing novel about Dream Park, where role playing games are incredibly real via computer enhancement, and are used for entertainment of the rich, training, and in this case, industrial sabotage and murder. Interesting adventure-survival story, filled with twists and turns. ( )

An odd choice for a name, as the Barsoom Project is nothing to do with the actual game that will be played, but a project that the Dream Park company inside the book wants to get involved with, actual exploration of Mars.

The game itself involves lots of cold, eskimo types and other such things, no John Carters or Dejah Thorises or any analogues of any of that to be seen.

Like a raging mountain, the Terichik rose screaming from a frozen, nightdark sea.
