A visionary science fiction classic from Larry Niven and Steven Barnes The Barsoom Project is the direct sequel to 1981’s Dream Park. Eviane’s first visit to the state-of-art amusement arena Dream Park ended in disaster: the special effects had seemed more real than life … until the holograms she was shooting with live ammunition turned out to be solid flesh and blood … and very, very dead. Haunted by the past, rebounding from a lengthy spell in a mental hospital, she has returned to Dream Park to exorcise a nightmare that has become reality. But in Dream Park, nothing is what it seems. The Inuit mythology controlling the images is part of a “Fat Ripper Special” designed to implant new behavioral memes. The players are struggling against the game master, one another, and their own demons. And there is a killer who wants to ensure Eviane never regains her memory … no matter what it costs. Blending together hard science fiction with virtual reality and RPG-like fantasy games, The Barsoom Project is science fiction at the cutting edge and a classic creation from two of the genre’s most beloved writers.
