Overview

All the stories of Allen Steele's award-winning "Near Space" series—now in an expanded and revised second edition!

Includes the Hugo Award-winning novella "The Death of Captain Future" and the Hugo Award-winning novelette "The Emperor of Mars."

Reviews:

…the Near Space series "presents a realistic and action-packed modern vision of the industrialization of space and those who make it happen. If the collective governments of the world had any sense, they'd be using these books as texts for ushering in a future worth having." —Analog Science Fiction and Fact

"Sex and Violence in Zero-G collects some important work by an author who has become one of the finer hard science fiction writers around… definitely a worthwhile collection." —Sci-Fi Weekly (A-)

"Steele's stories strive for a welcome verisimilitude, and how things might work in an environment that actively works against that sort of thing. And it works. Put ordinary people into a harsh, hostile environment, do bad things to them and then watch how they deal with it. It's a winning combination, especially as written by Allen Steele." —Tangent Online

"For those of you unfortunate enough to have not yet discovered Allen Steele, this collection of short stories is the perfect place to start." —Explorations

"Never read Allen Steele? Here's a great place to start. If you like Analog, you'll like Steele. Already an Allen Steele fan? Then what are you doing still reading? Go get the book already!"

"I had a ball reading these stories.… These are good stories. Which leads to my second recommendation for this book: Go buy it right now."
