Preview: All That Outer Space Allows by Ian Sales

I am happy to announce that friend of The Update, Ian Sales, has sent me a review copy of the final book in his Apollo Quartet series: All That Outer Space Allows. Unlike the previous entries in the series ("Adrift on the Sea of Rains", "The Eye with Which the Universe Beholds Itself" and "Then Will The Great Ocean Wash Deep Above") the finale will be novel-length. Check out the description from Amazon:

It is 1965 and Ginny Eckhardt is a science fiction writer. She’s been published in the big science fiction magazines and is friends with many of the popular science fiction authors of the day. Her husband, Walden, has just been selected by NASA as one of the New Nineteen Apollo astronauts… which means Ginny will be a member of the Astronaut Wives Club. Although the realities of spaceflight fascinate Ginny, her genders bars her from the United State space programme. Her science fiction offers little in the way of consolation—but perhaps there is something she can do about that… Covering the years 1965 to 1972, when Walden Eckhardt lifts-off aboard Apollo 15 as the mission’s lunar module pilot, this is Ginny’s life: wife, science fiction writer, astronaut wife… because that is ALL THAT OUTER SPACE ALLOWS.

To celebrate the launch of All That Outer Space Allows, Ian is releasing new editions of his previous Apollo Quartet stories complete with new covers and additional content. I highly recommend you read the entire series and I look forward to sharing my review of All That Outer Space Allows in the near future.
