  • 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

The first is the one that makes me the most upset about how stupid our species is. On the Montel Williams show in 2004, lying “psychic” Sylvia Browne said Amanda Berry was dead. A word synonymous for “psychic” is “phony.” They claim knowledge they do not have, have been proven not to have (as in this case and others), and have failed to prove under valid experimental conditions. They are predators of the desperate and gullible and should be held in scorn and ridiculed. So, I’m holding Sylvia Browne in scorn and ridiculing her as a charlatan.

A plastic gun has been invented that can be made with a 3-D printer. It’s been tested and fires, too. We’re now living in a brave new world yet again.

Finally, the last is the Zachary Quinto-Leonard Nimoy Audio commercial everyone is talking about:
