Product description


"Clarke, the author of a number of published stories and the novel The Expediter (DAW 1990), is a very amiable writer, with a nice ear for conversational speech, which makes his characters, whom we don't really know, seem quite real." - David Mead, New York Review of Science Fiction.

"Throw in some cyborgs, an artificial intelligence, alien creatures, and a few other plot twists and you have an exciting if sometimes a bit over the top adventure story" - Science Fiction Chronicle

"Fans of science fiction in general and those with a special interest in new world adventures will find Alphanuats a satisfying read." - The Bookwatch

"Brian Clarke is a master storyteller of considerable originality and ability who in "Alphanauts" takes his readers on a true and highly recommended science fiction epic from beginning to end." - Midwest Book Review

"This is a fairly straightforward adventure tale, a bit of a page turner that any fan of old fashioned Science Fiction should enjoy. Recommended." - Ronald Hore, cm magazine

"Clarke has written a page turner with scientist-heros as conflicted as any human but with practicality and compassion from the Golden Age of SF. An excellent read that I hope will encourage more books by this author." - Pam Allan, ConNotations

"This is a first-rate planetary colonization story with lots of science. Engineers and scientists will enjoy this book; so will everyone else who likes good, interesting writing." - Paul Lappen, Dead Trees Reviews

" insightful look at colonization and life on other planets--one I'd recommend to others." -Lisa Ramaglia, Scribes World

"This tale is reminiscent of Golden Age stories of interstellar exploration." - Cheryl,
