Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“As Robert A. Heinlein did and all too few have done since, Michael Flynn writes about the near future as if he'd been there and was bringing back reports of what he'd seen. A splendid piece of work.” —Harry Turtledove

“Michael Flynn has restored heroism and romance to near future exploration. Not to be missed.” —Nancy Kress

Firestar is a broad, sweeping saga of the near future. Michael Flynn has a lot to say, and this is the book where he says it.” —Roger MacBride Allen

“This is the best book ever written on the science, people, and politics need to move us into space--to stay.” —Charles Sheffield
