LATEST RELEASE:  sailplane science fiction

Modern sailplanes may be the most beautiful machines the world has ever seen. What they can do is amazing enough to be fantasy—but it’s fact. And in futures real and imagined, they could fly in stranger skies on other worlds. Five previously published tales of science fiction and science fantasy, plus a futuristic fact article, describe The Shape of Wings to Come. 

 

Available as an e-book for Kindle and other e-book readers and as a print edition from Amazon.


June 2018:  the final book in Aeon’s Legacy ~

Hidden inside the Starcross Nebula is a place of interstellar shipwreck. It’s like a Bermuda Triangle half as old as time. It harbors malicious monsters and dangerous mysteries.

It’s a hell of a place to attempt a rescue mission. 

Captain Zilka Devreze and her crew on the starship Guardian Angel plan to race against time to find shipwreck survivors in mortal danger.  They’ll use Zilka’s genius grasp of the intricacies of fast starflight to get in and back out again.

Mission specialist Jack Mistry was an accident investigator in the Solar System in his previous life. Abruptly revived from stasis in the starship Aeon, he agrees to join the unprecedented missionWhen he fled from Earth on Aeon, what he expected to find on the other side of the stars wasn’t an interstellar accident scene like this.  Or a woman like Zilka.

Always as singularly alone as she is brilliant, Zilka discovers that this can change. But first she has to learn how to lead a very assorted crew in extreme uncertainty and danger. And Jack has to learn to follow his heart. They and the starlost shipwreck survivors all learn how death and life, hell and hope, and danger and love intersect in the Starcross Nebula. Less evident is who will live to tell the tale. . . .

Praise for Hurricane Moon, trade paperback originally published by Pyr SF & F

“Love flourishes amid technical puzzles and planetary mysteries in Latner’s strong debut… Well-known for her hard SF short fiction, Latner should win new readers with this fine first novel.”—Publisher’s Weekly

“For those of us entertained by contemplating starship designs, planetary choice criteria, and biological considerations, this book has it all. But the book is also a great read for those who enjoy science fiction about people making choices based on the kind of world and future they want to build for themselves.”—National Space Society Book Reviews

“Atmospheric, haunting and evocative, Hurricane Moon is not to be missed.”—Starlog

Top pick! …The characters are well defined; the science is imaginative but not whimsical; and the voyage is out of this world.”—Romantic Times

Hurricane Moon…is a resonant achievement.”—Washington Post Book World
