  • Praise for Star Dragon

    Spider Star

    "Seldom does a storytelling talent come along as potent and fully mature as Mike Brotherton. His complex characters take you on a voyage that is both fiercely credible and astonishingly imaginative. This is Science Fiction."
    -- David Brin

    "Star Dragon is terrific fare, offering readers a fusion of hard science and grand adventure."
    -- Locus Magazine

    "Star Dragon is steeped in cosmology, the physics of interstellar travel, exobiology, artificial intelligence, bioscience. Brotherton, author of many scientific articles in refereed journals, has written a dramatic, provocative, utterly convincing hard science sf novel that includes an ironic twist that fans will love."
    -- Booklist starred review

    "Readers hungry for the thought-provoking extrapolation and rigorous technical detail of old-fashioned hard SF are sure to enjoy astronomer Brotherton's first novel."
    -- Publishers Weekly

    "Mike Brotherton, himself a trained astrophysicist, combines the technical acuity and ingenuity of Robert Forward with the ironic, postmodern stance and style of M. John Harrison. In this, his debut novel, those twin talents unite to produce a work that is involving on any number of levels. It's just about all you could ask for in a hardcore SF adventure."
    -- Paul di Fillippo, SCI-FI.COM

Unlikely Christmas Scenarios…

December 24th, 2012

Sneak attack from North Korea, because Norad will not fire because it could be Santa.

Anyone coming down the chimney in winter because many homes don’t have chimneys, chimneys are often very small (especially for a fat man with a belly like a bow full of jelly), and it’s freaking winter and there ought to be a fire in the chimney if you have one. Who wants to tell children that anyone can get into their house via the chimney? They’re going to be afraid of it or try it…

Cheap and abundant Christmas trees in the future.

And finally, Santa Claus conquering the Martians:

So bad…but can’t turn it off…
 

Do the X-Men prefer to celebrate X-Mas?
