      Ian Sales Apollo Quartet is an award winning sequence of alternate history novellas which explore different aspects of the twentieth century space race.I have a lot of time for what Sales is doing here with the Apollo quartet project Each novella is published separately in ebook, paperback or handsome and affordable hardcover which I recommend and I hope that once the sequence is complete a mass market publisher buys up the rights to publish the complete collection Its an interesting achievement [...]

      Originally posted here amazingstoriesmag 2013 12 The Apollo Quartet by Ian Sales is a collection of short stories each set in their own unique timeline, but tied together by the technology of the Apollo program much like the Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy is tied together by ice cream I have already read and reviewed the first two stories in the series Adrift on the Sea of Rains and The Eye with Which the Universe Beholds Itself so now I am going to tackle the next entry, Then Will The Great Oc [...]

      A little different, if you haven t read either of the previous volumes in Sales quartet, because his mix of alternate history, technological possibility and human endeavour IS refreshingly new but also if you have, because here he focusses on the human and on real people.The book is divided into six threads, named after the six quarks up down, strange charm and top bottom Up and Down deal with two slightly different I think alternate realities an Earth where the Korean war went on and on, so th [...]

      Tercer relato del Apollo Quartet y, como en los dos anteriores, Sales raya a muy buen nivel En este caso, empleando la historia real de Jerrie Cobb, una veterana piloto que en 1959 super con xito los test Mercury para convertirse en astronauta Cobb, junto a otras mujeres que lograron resultados superiores a sus compa eros masculinos, fueron injustamente relegadas por la NASA, emperrada en perpetuar el repelente mito del hombre blanco como explorador y colonizador, en este caso, del espacio Una h [...]

      It has taken me a while to get round to this, but it has definitely been worth the wait Where Adrift on the Sea of Rains was tightly focused on a single character, breathtakingly battering the reader with technical acronyms and human desperation alike, and The Eye With Which the Universe Beholds Itself hid its solution quite literally beyond the speed of light, this third novella in the Apollo Quartet is the most daring yet, both in its construction and in its scope.Sales steers his plot through [...]

      Ian Sales is a fascinating man He reads a LOT and it shows His blog posts on science fiction are well worth reading Perhaps importantly he helps show that there is a fantastic array of amazing books that are hiding away from the supermarket shelves and waiting for us to read Sales as a reader is always keen to explore new writers and importantly he is an advocate for people actually getting the chance to read some of the great female science fiction authors So much so that as a reaction to SF [...]

      Part three in the Apollo quartet by Ian sales another very good work with interesting characters and histories, up and down I had so far missed the Mercury 13 story, and I found it intriguing and unfairly almost forgotten Recommended p.s This review is shared with the online shop I got my ebook from.

      I mean, It s always nice to read an AU where the Mercury 13 got to go to space, even if they continued to get screwed over by NASA, but I didn t find the plot of this one very compelling Sales clearly couldn t think of much to do with female astronauts other than have them do the same stuff all the guys had done and then cheat them out of the moon walk, so half the plot is about a male deep sea diver who is looking for a spy satellite s cargo I basically felt like I was reading a non fiction boo [...]

      A alternate history, SF novella about the American Russian space race, but due to an escalated Korean War the astronauts are women This story is not connected with the other two books, outside of it focusing on space travel and alternate history I found this story captivating and entertaining then the previous two books It is written well and the characters have personality There is plenty of history anecdotes, but has less technical information This book also raises less interesting space rel [...]

    10. Gene on said:

      Ok, this is just getting ridiculous What was the point of this book Or rather what was the point of putting these THREE separate stories into a single book The first part with the 2 disparate stories intermingled together in alternating chapters I was waiting for them to come together at the end, and when they did come together, uhhh well, turns out that they didn t fit And then a summary of the real life story behind it all at the end or was that all fiction, too Hard to tell, and so disorienti [...]

      Deeply Interwoven Parallel Worlds Then Will The Great Ocean Wash Deep Above by Ian Sales Published 2013 Being a SF devotee for many years, I ve always been fascinated by parallel worlds stories Unfortunately we have a bunch of them which are quite lame A few years ago a friend of mine asked, Whatever happened to parallel worlds It used to be all the rage in SF Maybe the answer is that nobody believes in that shit any Is the parallel worlds theory merely the firing of electrons across synapses w [...]

      I just didn t really like this one It felt too dense and jargony in places, which I didn t find such a problem with the other two I enjoyed the female astronauts thread but wish it had been substantial as I didn t get on with the Trieste thread at all Sorry Ian.
