"If you're looking for realistic, high-tech science fiction, you've found it... Anderson really knows his stuff, and it shows." -- Geoffrey A. Landis, Hugo and Nebula award-winning author of Mars Crossing
From the Publisher
In A Step Beyond, first-time novelist C. K. Anderson has penned a thrilling debut notable for its grittily realistic portrayal of the many dangers and obstacles encountered in the first manned trip to Mars. This is fast-paced science fiction in the classic, can-do tradition of Clarke and Benford.See all Product Description

It did have a little bit of Evolution stuff - Evolution is hogwash science fiction itself. But I didn't care. It was like a jewel in a barn. The ending was a tad lame. But I still didn't care. Great read, it is! The technicalities are great. I could have loved even more but no complaints here. Except if I were to be extra-critical, I could kind of tell a couple times where the author didn't himself understand his description, as he was relying on his technical contributor. But again, so what. I'm going to look into the other similar books mentioned by another reviewer. One of a kind, in my super-minimal exposure.
