Have you ever dreamed of journeying into outer space, of colonizing the planets and moons of our solar system? Do you ever ask yourself what happened to the promises of government subsidized space programs? Victor Koman has asked these questions and more, questions that have culminated in an epic new novel of near-future science fiction: Kings of the High Frontier. Koman, three-time Prometheus Award winner of such controversial novels as The Jehovah Contract and Solomon's Knife, has labored long and hard to tell the tale of tomorrow, a tale where humankind struggles desperately to realize the dream dangled like a carrot before its eyes by a NASA grown bloated and inept. Around the world a new Space Race is underway, a race in which private citizens struggle against time and the oppressive power of a United Nations that would keep them stranded on an earth that seems barely capable of supporting the ever-increasing population. In Kings of the High Frontier, we follow the exploits and dreams of a handful of new frontiersman and women: an ex-astronaut and shuttle commander, a secretive black marketer and smuggler, a strong-willed and carefree billionaire, a struggling rocket designer, and a graduate student who is a direct descendant of the legendary frontiersman Davy Crockett. Laugh and cry, cheer and fear as these visionaries fight overpowering odds to journey into the Final Frontier.
