Beauty and grace. Speed and agility. Style and strength. The little spacecraft known as the Wayward Star has it all, and much more. The novel, The Wayward Star, exemplifies the romance between human and machine, thriving in the age of space travel within our Solar System. Time cannot weaken this love and the Wayward Star has that kind of connection. She also becomes the right ship at the right time during pivotal points in human history. Starting near the end of the twenty-first century, the book covers a fifty-year period and chronicles the journey of the small Wayward Star, along with the adventures of her various owners. Besides experiencing the lives of the different owners, the novel also follows Max Worthington, a man who owns a used Personal Interplanetary Transport (PIT) dealership on Mars and keeps getting the Wayward Star back for resale. Experience an eruption of Olympus Mons, Mars’ largest volcano. Travel along with the Martian Bureau of Investigation as they chase the head of the biggest drug cartel on Mars. Discover an underground ocean on Ganymede and work at a hydrocarbon mining company on Titan. Know the exhilaration of a professional spacecraft racer as he dodges mountains on the Moon. Feel the vibrations of the ship, as pilots break the light barrier. All of this happens to you, as you ride in the beautiful and sleek Wayward Star.
