A captain who'll take any job if there's enough money in it. A pilot with an agenda of her own. And a mechanic with an eye on the pilot. The crew of the Fives Full are just trying to make enough money to keep themselves in the black while avoiding the attention of a government so paranoid it's repealed Moore's Law. They're not looking for adventure in the stars . . . but they're not going to back down just because something got in their way. (Audiobook edition available January 2016)

About the Author:

Karl K. Gallagher is a systems engineer, currently performing data analysis for a major aerospace company. In the past he calculated trajectories for a commercial launch rocket start-up, operated satellites as a US Air Force officer, and selected orbits for government and commercial satellites. Karl lives in Saginaw, TX with his family.

Review:

"The Fives Full feels like a very real ship, and Karl Gallagher gives you the sense that he knows what every knob, lever and switch on the ship does. He comes by it honestly, with decades of experience as an aerospace engineer, working on advanced projects in the same private market sector as SpaceX and Blue Origin. What pulls it all together is that he pays as much attention to the psychology and motivations of his characters as he does to the engineering challenges and politics of the world he's created for the novel. Every character feels real, and every one makes sense. . . . Torchship hits the ground running, and while the pacing is appropriate for each scene, it never ever stops moving."- Gene Turnbow, "The Event Horizon," Krypton Radio
