But 'Spacetug' was fun and quick read and I will probably read some more of Penn's books to see where he takes his universe.
The wealthy Peters family look suited to a trip up to the orbiting hotel, while Marius and Abbey - two Danish engineers - look completely out of place in their attire, and it doesn't take the reader long to find out why.
I can't really say anymore about the story without giving the details away, except to say that I finished this book feeling very positive about just how close to colonisation in space we are. What made this book for me was the descriptions of 'how' things could be done, especially when you consider one of Penn's inspirations is the Copenhagen Suborbitals, an independent engineering collective running their own space program. Throw in an interesting array of characters, a little bit of politics, and lose yourself to the 64 pages on offer, just don't expect to take a break - it really is a fascinating read.
