The Last Shuttle by Tom Glover
"As a former Space Shuttle Launch team member I enjoyed the book. Very imaginative and close enough to reality to be realistic. One thing I really liked was his view about alien life, peaceful. In the universe the only alien life I know happens to..." Read more of this review »

This is a worthy sequel to Bowl of Heaven, with more plusses than minuses overall. One the plus side: The narrative kept my interest throughout; the science part of the story is strong, i.e. big, imaginative ideas, with a reasonable level of plausibi ...more
