Very fine (unread) copy in very fine jacket. Hardcover UK, true first edition and first printing. (The first US edition was published June, 2001.) Not a remainder nor ex-library copy. In 2025 the Earth is irreparably damaged. Commercial greed, political infighting and a mass fear that whatever is done will only make things worse hampers the search for scientific solutions to the devastation. An active micro-organism discovered several kilometres below the Mars surface by scientists at the Chinese Martian base is smuggled back to Earth and accidentally plunged into the Pacific Ocean. The "chi" was left undisturbed for 2 billion years on Mars, and it super evolved the ability to swap DNA at will, maximizing its survival whatever the environment. Now a plankton ocean is covering the Pacific, and the question left to answer is: Who is colonizing who? Award History: Nominee for the 2002 Arthur C. Clarke Award for Best SF Novel. (Lost to Bold as Love by Gwyneth Jones); Locus Recommending Reading List for 2001; Best Novel Nominee for the 2001 British Science Fiction Awards. (Lost to Chasm City by Alaistar Reynolds.)
