“Paul Preuss is a writer of real intelligence, and manages to treat his human characters as actually Wanted on the Voyage…. near space seems once again nearly possible. And that is good news.”
— John Clute,
Washington Post Book
“Above all, the characters are real…. Starfire is a true story, true in the way that only the best fiction can be true, and I heartily recommend it.”
— Orson Scott Card,
Fantasy & Science

Starfire is a fusion-powered spacecraft, with astronaut and celebrity daredevil Travis Hill a member of the crew, on a mission to an Earth-crossing asteroid. An immense solar flare cripples the mission and forces the crew to bury the ship inside the asteroid, hoping to survive a close pass around the sun.
