Reviews

A beautifully told story with colorful characters out of epic tradition, a tight and complex plot, and solid pacing. -- Booklist, starred review of On the Razor's Edge

Great writing, vivid scenarios, and thoughtful commentary ... the stories will linger after the last page is turned. -- Publisher's Weekly, on Captive Dreams

  1. That doesn't look like a geosynchronous orbit. It is too far south (not over the equator).

    1. Geosynchronous is different from geostationary. A geosynchronous orbit is any orbit with an orbital period of 23 hours, 56 minutes (one sidereal day). A geostationary orbit is a geosynchronous orbit with eccentricity and inclination of 0 (e.g., circular and over the equator).
