An Exciting Science Fiction Tale

Escape to Phobos by Kim Van Kramer is a good old-fashioned science fiction tale, full of adventure and hair-breadth escapes in the quest for the human future in deep space. Van Kramer's heroes are genetic scientists struggling to create new food sources for a starving human race at the apocalyptic start of the twenty-second century, an all-too-plausible scenario of runaway climate change and social collapse that is finally hitting America along with the rest of the world. Protagonist Lirren Lamaar is passionately devoted to this work and to her autistic-spectrum son Logan, a teenager who is already a brilliant scientist in his own right. But Lirren's boyfriend Xanders Pierson (and how many science fiction heroes are single mothers with special-needs children, even in this day and age?) believes the only hope for the human race lies in the new colonies on Mars, and is determined to bring Lirren and Logan there, with their invaluable life-giving research, to forge a new future. But first they must escape greedy and violent enemies who are determined to steal their scientific secrets...
