I'll be appearing on two upcoming podcasts.

Tuesday evening (5:30 PDT) I'll be on Krypton Radio's Event Horizon show. My lovely muse and narrator Laura will be joining me to talk about books, rockets, and working together as a couple on creative projects.

Sunday evening (7:30 EDT) the Catholic Geeks have invited me to talk rocketry. I'll discuss SpaceX, Blue Origin, and other people trying to change how we get to space.

I'm honored to announce that I won the first Planetary Award for Best Novel. I'm delighted that the voters thought Torchship was the best new book they'd read all year.

I just read Torchship myself: Was a good read. Write more! - You've introduced these enigmatic AIs, now I want to know what is going on in their heads!

The sequel will be out this summer. We will find out more about what makes one AI tick.

I would be surprised if you didn't already have something like this, but if not, I've thrown together an excel calculator that might be useful in your worldbuilding. (I'm using it for some sci-fi worldbuilding of my own).

Torchship Brachistochrone Calculator, and other useful tables:

Go to the calculator tab, and you can work out travel times, required propellant mass fractions, required reactor powers, and similar stuff.

That's a bit more neatly organized than when I've done some scratch calculations. Thanks!
