"Excruciatingly exciting... This is visionary fiction with gut-level, instinctive appeal." -- Richard E. Geis, The Geis Report
"In case you, like others, have forgotten the Future, Victor Koman remembers it. He grew up there and now, with total recall, wakes us to jog our memories and rebirth Tomorrow. Would that there were a dozen more writers like him in the field." -- Ray Bradbury
"They promise to do what the Space Program appears to have forgotten: get Mankind off the planet...
"The various spacecraft are lovingly detailed, utilizing both contemporary technology and classic designs, and we watch each of them being built under such a close eye that we feel we have as much stake in them as do the book's characters. There are any number of plot twists and turns -- far too many to properly convey in the space we have here -- but if you ever shared the dream of manned space flight, imagined it could be you heading up there into orbit and beyond, then you'll love this book.
"Kings of the High Frontier is an intriguing, exhilarating, thought-provoking, and -- yes -- sprawling novel that brings back the sense of wonder that drew so many of us into science-fiction in the first place." -- Charles de Lint, The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From the Publisher
Kings of the High Frontier is available in two collector's editions, both with an important Afterword by award-winning and best-selling author Gregory Benford, Ph.D. The 1250 copy Limited Edition is signed and numbered by Victor Koman and includes a stunning dust jacket by Star Wars and X-Files artist Rob Prior (his first-ever book cover!). Pre-publication sales of this edition have exceeded expectations, so act fast. The Deluxe Edition, limited to 250 copies, is slipcased and bound in Kivar, signed by all three contributors, and includes a limited edition 22" x 18" full-color lithograph of the dust jacket art, limited to 500 prints, signed and numbered by Rob Prior.
Kings of the High Frontier has earned the highest praise, from Ray Bradbury to Gregory Benford, and has been displayed prominently at the World Science Fiction Convention in Baltimore and DragonCon in Atlanta. I urge everyone to find out what the buzz is about, because Victor Koman doesn't pull any punches. While reading Kings, one cannot help but contemplate the current status of our moribund space program, and it is this fact that makes the novel shine. This stuff is happening today, my friends. This is not an idle dream, a fantasy of some far-off future. Kings of the High Frontier is now and will motivate you to seize back the reigns, look once again at the stars and shout: "Here We Come"...and mean it. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
