Sex and Violence in Zero-G: The Complete Near Space Stories, Expanded Edition (Paperback)
All the stories of Allen Steele's award-winning "Near Space" series--now in an expanded and revised second edition
Since its first publication in 1999, Sex and Violence in Zero-G has become one of the most long-sought and hard-to-find of Steele's books. At last, this massive collection is back in print--complete with a new introduction, five additional stories, and a revised timeline.
Includes the Hugo Award-winning novella "The Death of Captain Future" and the Hugo Award-winning novelette "The Emperor of Mars."
...the Near Space series "presents a realistic and action-packed modern vision of the industrialization of space and those who make it happen. If the collective governments of the world had any sense, they'd be using these books as texts for ushering in a future worth having." --Analog Science Fiction and Fact
"Sex and Violence in Zero-G collects some important work by an author who has become one of the finer hard science fiction writers around... definitely a worthwhile collection." --Sci-Fi Weekly (A-)
"Steele's stories strive for a welcome verisimilitude, and how things might work in an environment that actively works against that sort of thing. And it works. Put ordinary people into a harsh, hostile environment, do bad things to them and then watch how they deal with it. It's a winning combination, especially as written by Allen Steele." --Tangent Online
"For those of you unfortunate enough to have not yet discovered Allen Steele, this collection of short stories is the perfect place to start." --Explorations
