ABOUT THIS NOVEL


Two pioneering couples go Walking on the Sea of Clouds in this near-future technological drama about the risks people will take, the emergencies they’ll face, and the sacrifices they’ll make to survive and thrive as part of the first independent, commercial lunar colony. In the end, one will leave, one will stay, one will dither … and one will die so another can live.    

ABOUT GRAY RINEHART


Gray Rinehart is the only person to have commanded a remote Air Force tracking station, written speeches for Presidential appointees, and had music on “The Dr. Demento Show.”

Gray retired from the U.S. Air Force after a rather odd career. He began as a Bioenvironmental Engineer, became a project engineer, then became a space and missile operator. Over the course of his career, he kept rocket propulsion research operations safe, fought fires as head of a Disaster Response Force, trained Air Force ROTC cadets, refurbished space launch facilities, “flew” Milstar satellites, drove trucks, processed nuclear command and control orders as an Emergency Actions officer, commanded the Air Force’s largest satellite tracking station, protected militarily critical space technologies, and wrote speeches for top Air Force leaders.

Gray is a Contributing Editor for Baen Books, and his fiction has appeared in Analog Science Fiction & Fact, Asimov’s Science Fiction, Orson Scott Card’s Intergalactic Medicine Show, and other venues. Through a quirk of fate, his story “Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust, Earth to Alluvium” was a finalist for the 2015 Hugo Award for Best Novelette. He is also the author of a variety of essays, articles, and other nonfiction, and a singer/songwriter with two albums that feature science-fiction-and-fantasy-inspired songs.
