Space mirrors Earth in the warp of love and weave of war.
"a healthy dose of realism and hard science"
Elby Adamson, The Clay Center Dispatch
"The plots are solid...extended intellectual exercises..."
A free-floating world of surprise in three novellas: murder as a shortcut to romance sets the first tale in motion; the adventure in the second involves a large blimp that the expedition brings along for travel on Mars. The last story is a set-piece for lunar military planners, an exciting technical manual for battle strategists on the moon. These stories in their realism are the future of our space pioneers.
With a PhD from Rice University in Space Physics & Astronomy, Larry Jay Friesen worked at Johnson Space Center from 1976 through 1998, mostly for McDonnell-Douglas and Lockheed-Martin. He currently teaches Astronomy and Physics at the University of Houston - Clear Lake. He was elected as an Associate Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics. He brings a wealth of accurate detail to the highly probable reality of his stories.
