I received a note a few days ago from David J. Williams, the author of a new book; “The Mirrored Heavens“. In his email to me, David writes:
“I’m the author of the just-released THE MIRRORED HEAVENS, which was published on May 20th by Random House’s Bantam Spectra. The book centers on events following the destruction of the Phoenix Elevator, a LEO (rather than GEO) space elevator. While I’m a writer of fiction, and certainly hope that such scenarios never come to pass, I do hope that my book might contribute in some small way to the growing publicity around space elevators, which I firmly believe to be an idea whose time has come…
You might also check out my website, where I’ve got a fair amount of imagery/data relating to the Elevator, and the world of 2110.”
The website is splendid and well worth a visit - the trailer he’s posted is first-rate and ranks very high on my cool-o-meter… And as a blogger, I especially enjoy David’s blog - it’s really well done.
Once I’ve read this book, I’ll post a review here on the blog.
