"Warlight" by Michael Ondaatje
A dramatic coming-of-age story set in the decade after World War II, "Warlight" is the mesmerizing new novel from the best-selling author of "The English Patient." Pre-order today
"An attempt to harness the magic of mid-century science fiction is mostly fun in Bascomb's second Far Orbit collection. There are a few gems among the 13 stories, including Julie Frost's "The Affairs of Dragons," which is an utterly charming Firefly-esque tale about a space captain and his crew that take on very unusual cargo: a clutch of dragon eggs that must be kept safe at all costs, but when they hatch, the crew find themselves in the middle of a dragon clan war and a wily bunch of tiny, hungry fire-breathers."
-- Publisher's Weekly
"Another standout is Keven R. Pittsinger's "Culture Shock" in which an attempted sabotage of a mining rig lands the saboteur in the brig and to an unlikely friendship with his diametrically opposed jailer, and Dominic Dulley's "Dainty Jane," about the 17 year old daughter of a bulk hauler that will do anything not to continue her father's business, but when raiders board their ship, realizes there are much worse fates."
-- Publishers Weekly
"Apogee is indeed the logical successor to the original Far Orbit anthology."
-- Eric Choi, co-editor of Carbide Tipped Pens
"Provide[s] a respite from the outright attacks on the Grand Tradition that have set the tone for contemporary science fiction."
