Altered Space Trilogy

30.00 35.00

Altered Space is a parallel collection of what-if stories from the Golden Age of space exploration—an Apollo 13 moon landing, a Soviet circumlunar flight, a manned Venus flyby using Apollo hardware. Each narrative stands on its own, but all deal with the mysteries of space and time, progress and circularity. And in every one, the orbits of spacecraft, moons, planets and people allow us fresh perspectives on the cycles of our own lives.

Island of Clouds

Brennan made me really feel I was along for the ride. The tension of the two leads made the read compelling--and that was when the mission was going well. When it took an unexpected turn, anticipating the outcome became a real page-turner for me--I didn't want to put it down. Brennan is a master of taut dialog and--by some magic I wish I could possess--getting inside the brains of real historical figures and having them act in ways that make me think, yes, that is exactly what that person would say, and feel. This is one of the best space dramas I've read in a long time.
- Francis French, author, In the Shadow of the Moon

A dreamlike, surreal tale about the world's first human-helmed interplanetary mission--and the three diverse personalities who went to another world, but found themselves. Island of Clouds takes you on a wild ride to Venus, and beyond the infinite. I couldn't put it down!

Public Loneliness

This great read truly sounds like Gagarin could have written this himself. It captures the spirit of the first spacefarer well, in the middle of a gripping story that had me wondering until the very last page. A great book!

- Francis French, author, In the Shadow of the Moon

Brennan does an amazing job of sharing the history of the world's first human spaceflight, presented here in the context of a fictional second flight for Yuri Gagarin. The actual history is informative, the fictional story is compelling, and Brennan tells the tale in an imminently readable first-person narrative that is utterly believable. Well worth the read.

- David Hitt, author, Homesteading Space: The Skylab Story

Really wonderfully written, evocative, and original in its approach to "humanize" not only the space program but the Soviet side of the race.

Zero Phase

Wow! - Eric Jones, Editor, Apollo Lunar Surface Journal

[I]t was a good read and kept me wondering how it was going to end.

- Captain James Lovell, USN (Ret.), Commander, Apollo 13

LOVED reading this.

- Francis French, author, In the Shadow of the Moon

Zero Phase takes readers to a place where only two men have gone, and a situation no man has faced--illuminating what could very well may have happened during 1970's perilous Apollo 13 mission. I couldn't put it down.
