About this title

Synopsis:

Project Avalon is the gripping story of the founding of the first private lunar colony while civilization on Earth crumbles under its own decayed weight. In the tradition of Robert Heinlein's The Moon is a Harsh Mistress and Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged, Project Avalon explores the current socio-political conditions of the human race and extrapolates their development into a dangerous yet promising future. Project Avalon is a prescient cautionary tale, which nevertheless paints a vivid picture of a brilliant tomorrow for humanity.

About the Author:

B. Alexander Howerton is the President of the Space Stock Surfers of Grand Rapids, Michigan, an investment club concentrating on the companies that are developing the space infrastructure. Alex has been researching the economics of space development since 1989. He is the author of two books on space. Free Space! Real Alternatives For Reaching Outer Space (1995), is a non-fiction examination of the emerging space commerce. Project Avalon (1998) is a science fiction novel portraying the establishment of the first private lunar colony. Alex published Space Available, The Space Investor's Report, from 1992 to 1995, and was Business Manager of the space-oriented magazines Countdown and Quest from 1994 to 1996. He has published articles in several periodicals, including Ad Astra, Space News, The Futurist, Countdown, Moon Miner's Manifesto, and Space Governance. Alex believes the only way to successfully develop space is through the mechanisms of private enterprise, and that such activities will result in the general expansion of the global economy and a rising standard of living for all people.
