Description

Looking for science fiction stories like they used to write? Far Orbit Apogee takes all of the fun-to-read adventure, ingenuity, and heroism of mid-century pulp fiction and reshapes it into modern space adventures crafted by a new generation of writers. Follow the adventures of heroic scientists, lunar detectives, space dragons, robots, interstellar pirates, gun slingers, and other memorable and diverse characters as they wrestle with adversity beyond the borders of our small blue marble.

Featuring stories from Jennifer Campbell-Hicks, Dave Creek, Eric Del Carlo, Dominic Dulley, Nestro Delfino, Milo James Fowler, Julie Frost, Sam S. Kepfield, Kevin R. Pittsinger, Wendy Sparrow, Anna Salonen, James Van Pelt, and Jay Werkheiser

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 09, 2015 – James's second Far Orbit collection is a mostly successful attempt to harness the magic of mid-20th-century science fiction. There are a few gems among the 13 stories, including Julie Frost's "The Affairs of Dragons," which is an utterly charming Firefly-esque tale about a space captain and crew who take on very unusual cargo: a clutch of dragon eggs that must be kept safe at all costs. When they hatch, the crew find themselves in the middle of a dragon clan war and hosts to a wily bunch of tiny, hungry fire-breathers. In Keven R. Pittsinger's "Culture Shock," the attempted sabotage of a mining rig lands the saboteur in the brig, where he begins an unlikely friendship with his diametrically opposed jailer. In Dominic Dulley's "Dainty Jane," the 17-year-old daughter of a bulk hauler will do anything not to continue her father's business, but when raiders board their ship, she realizes there are much worse fates. Unfortunately, stumbles like Dave Creek's "Murder at Tranquility Base," a by-the-numbers lunar murder mystery, and "A Most Exceptional Scholarship" by Nestor M. Delfino, about a bullied young man offered the chance of a lifetime, keeps this collection from being entirely successful.
