Product description

Review

''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, New York Times bestselling author

''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, New York Times bestselling author

''Firestar is a knockout . . . Blurbmeisters, comparing him to Heinlein, may be shorting his talent . . . By any measure, this is the best book I've seen this year.'' --San Diego Union-Tribune

''An extraordinary achievement, beautifully and vividly written, full of real people . . . the history of a future that can be ours.'' --Poul Anderson, winner of the Hugo, Nebula, and Science Fiction Writers of America Grand Master Awards

''Flynn has produced one of the better books in this budding subgenre. His plot is complex, but it stays on track. His large cast of characters, particularly industrialist Mariesa van Huyten, are generally well drawn; even the villains have depth. Flynn's detailed description of new space technologies is entirely believable, too . . . Likely to please most fans of thoughtful hard SF.'' --Publishers Weekly

''Michael Flynn has restored heroism and romance to near future exploration. Not to be missed.'' --Nancy Kress, Hugo Award-winning author

''This is the best book ever written on the science, people, and politics needed to move us into space -- to stay.'' --Charles Sheffield, Hugo Award-winning author
