Welcome to Neptune- where the air and sunlight are borrowed, the surface is unstable, and the people are - inventive.
In this first collection, we meet many of the central characters - and they meet each other. Sam Brubeck arrives on Neptune having ditched Earth and under suspicion for the murder of his mother. He meets the crew of an improvised vessel called the Tumbleweed, and finds that remaining anonymous on Neptune is going to be tougher than he thought. Add in a nine-year-old orphan roboticist, a cyborg with a telly for a head and an attitude, and an agent with an intriguing identity, plus a lot of tangled history - and technology, all on an unstable planet - and here we go.
This is Radio Neptune reminding you, each new day is a chance to go out and do something worth putting on the radio.
About the Author
Betsy Streeter is a science fiction and fantasy novelist and author, a cartoonist, and a steampunk and fantasy artist and illustrator. Betsy grew up amongst cows, wineries, and physicists on a steady diet of Star Trek, The Muppet Show and Atari games. She did her high school FORTRAN homework on a Cray. After a journey she calls “Mister Toad’s Wild Ride Through Corporate America” in which she worked in film/video, software, design, and computer games, and during which she also became a syndicated cartoonist as the creator of the feature BRAINWAVES, she emerged as a novelist and fantasy artist. She is the author of the SILVERWOOD YA science fiction novels, and the author and illustrator of the science fiction serial NEPTUNE ROAD and spinoff stories ROCKET ANGELS and PHILO AND MAY. Her work travels the world as books, magazines, pixels, a science exhibit on black holes, and at least one tattoo. She lives in Northern California with her equally geeky husband, two metalhead kids, a couple of peculiar cats and a mellow but hungry tarantula.
