I think maybe "hard sci-fi" should be a genre and that "science fiction" should be a genre and never the two shall meet.
it is, of course, Mars itself that really drives the plot.
and KSR's books are like a universe populated by Aspies.
I wonder if there's an exploration to be made of the way that we find affinity for characters who are more or less like ourselves?
It does seem as if the needle has swung almost entirely the other way in recent cinema - I'm thinking of the recent trend in movies like /Cloverfield/ or /Paranormal Events/ to only ever show the reactions of the characters, telling the whole story through their eyes without any god's eye narration or big reveals.
