Second Star


Star Svensdotter is building a habitat for a space colony in Terra-Luna-Sol orbit at Lagrange Five, and she’s by God going to finish it on schedule, no matter how often fanatical Luddites, Space Patrol generals, Terran Alliance bureaucrats and her sister Charlie try to get in the way. You hear?

I wrote this book in response to the Challenger blowing up, a story about a space program that worked. Rage is a great motivator. I love you-are-there books, and I especially love you-are-there-in-space books. The first sf I ever read was Between Planets by Robert Heinlein. Man, I so wanted to be Don Harvey. I sure as hell didn’t want to be `whither-thou-goest Isobel,’ but that’s a topic for another day.

  1. I am reading the seventh Kate Shugak novel, I am enjoying it immensely. It is on my bucket list to make a trip to Alaska, having grown up in northern Manitoba on the Hudson Bay, I have a great love and respect for the North. Looking forward to completing this series as well. Thank you for the great reads. BD
