Finally, a new Sci-Fi book for science fiction writers.

Arkwright by Allen Steele (author of Coyote trilogy):

Arkwright is a fictional account of a famous Sci-Fi author named Nathan Arkwright whose series of Galaxy Patrol books and movies made him a very wealthy man (what we all dream about when were not writing). Upon death Mr. Arkwright shirks all of his relatives who don’t get a dime and decides to put all of that money to good use by starting a foundation tasked with building mankind’s first starship. This starship won’t be populated by cranky people but rather AI robots, eggs, sperm and a few artificial wombs.

Arkwright 4-4-16

Does the starship get built? Does it make it to the target star system? Is the planet successfully colonized? Does Earth’s population get off’d by runaway global warming? Is there a sequel?  Don’t ask me. Read the book.

Was it any good? Sure, I gave it an A-. Did it deserve an A-? Not really. It was actually a B+ book but the plot idea of one of our own making it to the mountaintop was worth the extra upgrade.

About Richard Murray

I've been interested in astrophotography for some time now and more recently began writing science fiction. Half a million words plus later, I continue to write every day. I share some of the things I learned along the way as well as some of my writing, plus an occasional astrophoto I’ve taken just for fun on my blog site Fictional Astronomer at .
