Tales of the Grand Tour by Ben Bova

In novels like Mars , and Moonbase , and Venus , Jupiter , and Saturn , as well as Privateers , The Precipice , and The Rock Rats , Ben Bova has been telling the stories of the wars and rivalries, the outsize individuals, public crusades, and private passions that will drive us as we expand into the Solar System and make use of its vast resources. And throughout, Bova has shown our cosmic neighborhood as we know it to be, giving us a sense of Venus and Jupiter and the Asteroid Belt and Mars thats as up-to-date as the latest observations. For the last two decades have been a golden age of near-Earth astronomy and observation, and Bova has made dramatic use of our newest knowledge. Bova has written short fiction about some of the same characters and events--Sam Gunn, Martin Humphries, Klaus Fuchs, Dan Randolph, the Asteroid Wars. Now, in Tales of the Grand Tour , those stories are collected in book form for the first time, creating a volume that is a landmark of modern SF.
