Three Californias is the brilliant sf trilogy (The Wild Shore, The Gold Coast, Pacific Edge) that launched the career of international bestseller Kim Stanley Robinson, author of Red Mars and 2312.

Before Kim Stanley Robinson terraformed Mars, he wrote three science fiction novels set in Orange County, California, where he grew up. These alternate futures—one a post-apocalypse, one an if-this-goes-on future reminiscent of Philip K. Dick, and one an ecological utopia—form a whole that illuminates, enchants, and inspires.

The Wild Shore was nominated for the Philip K. Dick Award, and won the Locus Award for Best First Novel. Ursula K. Le Guin hailed it as “A fresh wind blowing”. The second of the trilogy, The Gold Coast, is a manic, savage look at the craziness of technology out of control. The third, Pacific Edge, is a Utopia, where humanity tries to live in harmony with the natural world, but greed is still a force, and hearts still break. Pacific Edge won the John W. Campbell Award for Best Novel.

With a new introduction by Francis Spufford, bestselling author of Golden Hill.
