Books I Like

The books I especially liked reading and the year they were read.

2023

  • Critical Mass by Daniel Suarez
    • Story continues from the author's earlier (awesome!) space-tech novel Delta-V. Faced with the challenge of rescuing crew mates from an asteroid-mining mission gone sideways, and with little help available from a crisis-plagued Earth, our heroes must build what they need in cislunar space to help both crew and planet. An in-depth exploration of the technology to make it so, and how private space exploration can play a critical role in making a more expansive, hopeful future both on- and off-world!
