As proven by Wild Blue, Adrenaline's first collection of airborne adventures, the best writing about flying includes all the elements of great drama: mortal danger, high stakes, and individuals with not much more than their wits to rely on. Clint Willis's latest collection, Sky High, raises the stakes even further with a greater focus on the men and women who fly in space. From smashing the sound barrier to the struggles required to get a man into orbit (and then back again), from the first trips to the moon to today's space station pioneers and paying passenger astronauts, Sky High includes great writing by and about those who have been among the boldest explorers of the past century. From those who led the way (Chuck Yeager, John Glenn, and Neil Armstrong) to world class writers and journalists (Norman Mailer to Bryan Burrough) to lesser-known authors, Sky High gives readers more of the aeronautic thrills that made Wild Blue take off.
