Mary Griffith is one of the many independent minded adventure seekers to flee an increasingly rule-dominated Earth for a harsh life on Mars. Funny, romantic and surprising.

The Empress of Mars is not a person it's a bar- the only place to buy alcohol on Mars. This book is less of a space opera and more of a western-small-town-takes-on-the-evil-railroad-corporation book in space. The characters are all unique (scientists turned bartenders, Italian playboys with a love of spaghetti westerns, ice truckers), and the customs the locals all stranded on Mars have come up with are really... Martian. All this, and an evil corporation you love to hate!
