Well I just finished reading Michael Flynn’s Firestar series January 19, 2017

What a fun read. Written in the late 90s and early 2000s it’s an audacious four book series (Firestar, Rogue Star, Lodestar, and Falling Stars) that ambitiously chronicles humanity’s serious move into really colonizing space, driven by the wealthy heiress Mariesa van Huyten and her dread of an asteroid strike on Earth–a dread that is both well-founded and yet which radically underestimates the real problem.  With a massive cast of well-drawn characters, a really good grasp of the hard science problems to be worked, a respect for human greatness and an empathy for human frailty, Flynn wove me a story that kept me delighted for months on my walks around the neighborhood.

Oh, and just for fun here’s one of his tales on audio:
