The leadership of a country under an immense pressure from the world community to reform its atrocious political system, decided to send a spaceship loaded with world-renowned scientists to undertake a make believe research programme on the moon for a period of one year. This decoy did not go as planned and the spaceship, which was largely controlled by computers from Earth, could not land on the moon. Unfortunately, an attempt to bring it back to Earth failed when it bounced off the Earth’s atmosphere and proceeded to fly away at an ever-increasing speed. The marooned scientists developed various means of passing the time while they awaited the inevitable death. However, after nearly a year of wandering through the universe the spaceship landed on a planet, which turned out to be Mars but with conditions completely at variance with what is known on Earth about this planet. What the Martians learnt about the socio-political conditions on Earth displeased them enormously. They therefore sent the scientists back with an ultimatum for the world’s leadership, asking Earth to change its ways so that an acceptable interplanetary discourse could be established. The leadership of the world threw down the gauntlet and embarked upon a secret mission to bomb Mars out of existence. This was detected by the Martians and set the two planets on a collision course, with the winner of the encounter not much in doubt.

    Poetic Retribution from Mars tells a unique science fiction adventure story. The author Sylvester Abanteriba builds a dramatic narrative across the planet with rich imagination and scientific and technological knowledge. The novel is not only for entertainment, but also reflects on the moral and scientific and technological development of human beings through its carefully designed plot. Through the description of future technology and alien life, Abanteriba not only created a fictional world, but also challenged readers to think about the ethical issues behind scientific and technological progress. This book is characterized by its unique perspective and profound theme, so that readers can enjoy reading and have more in-depth insights into the world they live in. Although Abanteriba, who turned into a writer as an engineer, may not be as proficient in literary expression as professional novelists, the scientific insights and innovative concepts he presents in the book are enough to make up for the lack of narrative skills and are refreshing. Generally speaking, this is a science fiction novel worth recommending, especially for readers who like to explore the relationship between technology and human nature in depth.
