The year is +1108 Atomic Era. Hanville Svetz, who first appeared in Larry Niven's THE FLIGHT OF THE HORSE, is on his way back from +390, accompanied by a snake for the Secretary-General's private zoo. On his return, however, he learns that his employer has died. But his wasted journey is the least of his concerns. With the new regime comes a new role for Svetz, and hunting down extinct animals is not on the agenda. Instead, Svetz is going to be sent much further back in time. And not to Earth. For the new Secretary- General has greater ambitions. He wants to learn the secrets of Mars - and its one-time inhabitants. What Svetz finds is a world unaware of the danger it faces. For an incredible tree has taken root in the canals of the Mars. He soon discovers that this tree will not stop growing until it has drained all life from its host planet. When it has, he knows that it will move on. And he knows that the next planet in line is Earth. Rainbow Mars is a novel of remarkable energy, full of compelling ideas and non-stop adventure.… (més)

Rainbow Mars is more about Svetz the time traveller…see if you can identify the sources within this tale. There are 3 of the Svetz short stories (included in other volumes) but it's Rainbow Mars that is the meat. The main tale gives us more detail and development of a decent plot line and deserves a bit more credit that "okay", but certainly a bit less than the "Draco Tavern" stories. The short stories are cute fluff, but "Rainbow Mars" is a real story with action, blood and love. Still not on the level of "Ringworld" but worth the read anyway. ( )

I suspect that this book was meant for people who'd read enough fiction set on Mars to recognize most of the allusions to them. For someone who'd only read half of Kim Stanley Robinson's Mars trilogy and barely knew of War of the Worlds at the time of reading, its ending in which different Mars appeared to open into one another without explanation was confusing and disappointing. All through Rainbow Mars, I felt as if I were missing out on inside jokes. ( )

Each of the stories in this book, some of which were previously published as shorts in magazines, centers on a xenophobic and somewhat reluctant time traveler being sent through time to find things to appease/entertain the ruler and/or encourage funding for the time travel agency he works for. But unbeknownst to him or his agency, he is being sent not just backwards and forwards in time but sideways to parallel universes populated with creatures from myth and fiction.
The concept is interesting and it could have made for a very whimsical series of tales. Somehow it falls short. The potential isn’t realized. Niven, a highly competent science fiction writer, was apparently trying to stretch himself to write fantasy after meeting with Terry Pratchett but Niven simply does not have Pratchett’s skill with words and ideas necessary to pull this off.

Delightfully geektastic. Time-travelers visit a past where the lines between fiction and reality are blurred; they go to the Mars of this past, where they meet the creations of Edgar Rice Burroughs, H.G. Wells, C.S. Lewis, Ray Bradbury and others. I loved it, but you probably have to be a big fan of classic science fiction to like it or even follow it. ( )
