"Terraforming Mars was never so blue-collar"

Honey is on the run from reactionary forces on Earth and is going head to head with President Warner S Thompson, the poster boy of the anti-smart-animals movement. There’s a lot of Trump in Thompson, but no cheap gags; the British writer Adrian Tchaikovsky’s dissection of Thompson’s appeal and ghastly genius is the thoughtful highlight of this unashamedly thrilling escapade. You don’t need to have read Dogs of War to enjoy Bear Head — but why deny yourself the pleasure?
