Transterrestrial reader (and occasional commenter) Laura Montgomery has what appears to be an interesting new SF book out on Kindle.
I noticed that you’ve mentioned an independent author from time to time at Transterrestrial, and thought I’d let you know about my own attempts along those lines. I’ve published on Kindle and other ereaders The Sky Suspended.
It’s bourgeois, legal science fiction with a hearty helping of space policy wonkery.
The short version of the blurb is:
A generation has passed since asteroid scares led the United States to launch its first and only interstellar starship. The ship returns and announces the discovery of another Earth. People are star-struck, crowds form in Washington, DC, and a boy from Alaska and two lawyers grapple with issues surrounding the question of whether ordinary people will be able to emigrate to the stars.
I haven’t read it, but the few reviews are positive. You might want to check it out and add your own.
