Slingshot. SALE!

By on Dec 23, 2015 in Blog | 0 comments

Slingshot is a love story – about a man, a woman, another man, another woman, some gender bending…and a machine, the largest ever built. Slingshot is a mystery – about a missing aviatrix, a conspiracy, a true-believer. Slingshot is an adventure – about following a dream, the ocean-deep, outer space. Slingshot is about constructing the first space launch-loop stretching 2,000 km between Baker and Jarvis Islands in the Equatorial Pacific. It’s about high finance, intrigue, unlimited ambition, heroism, fanaticism, betrayal…and about opening space to the common person. With a cast of 69, Slingshot takes you from Seattle’s world financial district, to the ocean bottom at 5,000 meters off Baker Island, to the edge of space 80 km above. You play with dolphins and battle sharks. You fly and sail and dive, you work and play and love across the vast panorama of an Equatorial Pacific being put to leash to serve humanity’s surge into outer space. While its accurate science and precise engineering will appeal to hard science fiction buffs, Slingshot’s major focus is the grand journey, the opening of outer space to the common person by men and women who loom larger than life as they work, play, and love.   Available on Amazon for 99 cents for a limited time. Download   Review From the Sea to the Stars, July 31, 2015 By Keith Lofstrom “microelectronics designer” This review is from: Slingshot: Building the largest machine in human history (Starchild Series) (Volume 1) (Paperback) Slingshot is about the people who will build a better world, the kind of person that every teenager should dream of becoming. The setting is the construction of the first launch loop, a low cost, zero pollution space launch system that I and others proposed in the early 1980s. The launch loop can be built with 1970s materials, is energy efficient, and zero emissions, so I prefer it to rocket exhaust, nuclear explosions, and unobtainium. Most science fiction is fantasy, using magic spaceships rather than magic swords, a backdrop for adventurers who break the machinery that invisible others labored to make. I prefer to dream about doing. Spaceships will require mining, machining, assembly, transportation, and repair, done by the millions of heroes we never hear...

Michael Armando, jazz musician and President of MJA Records, says of Chet Baker: The Missing Years: A Memoir by Artt Frank, “Artt tells it like it was, what it was like being a friend and a drummer for this great legend Chet Baker … When reading this book for the first time it is almost like you are being drawn into a time warp going back into time. Artt Frank takes you from the dark back alleys of drugs and despair to the shinning genius of Chet’s playing smoke filled clubs and the streets … If you are a musician you will cherish it after reading it. Non-musicians will learn how great Chet Baker was and how great a friend drumming great Artt Frank was to Chet. The truth will set you free and Artt Frank has done this with his memoir. Amen… I give this book 10 stars…” As reviewed by premiere jazz journalist and critic, Doug Ramsey, this memoir “…shows us sides of the great trumpeter that few people knew. In gripping detail, he [Artt] tells of the well-known drama in Baker’s life—the sudden fame, the struggle with drugs, the effects of a beating that almost ended his career. But Artt gives us new insights into Chet’s warmth, his love of family, his steely determination and the early emergence of his astonishing talent…This is a book of revelations.”...
