Coincidence?

This week's book reviews on Sci Fi Weekly has two reviews of books where the plotline centers on colonizing Mars. Mars Life is by Ben Bova, and Marsbound is by Joe Haldeman.

They sound like very different books, but they both have Mars in the title, and I find it interesting that two well established, well known writers would both come out with a Mars book so close together. Ever since the Kim Stanley Robinson books came out, I don't recall much in the way of Mars books.

Or am I just misremembering?
