I learned today that Dr. Bradley Edwards is in the final stages of releasing two new books relating to the Space Elevator. The first, written in conjunction with Phil Ragan, is a book dedicated to explaining the concept of the Space Elevator to the layman. It’s entitled “Leaving the Planet by Space Elevator“.
The second book is co-edited by Dr. Edwards and David Raitt and is a collection of Sci-Fi stories resulting from the European Space Agency’s (ESA) contest for young authors who wanted to write about the Space Elevator. It’s entitled “Running the Line“. I had posted about this contest earlier. The ESA story about this contest can be found here.
Dr. Edwards is planning on bringing several cases of these books to the upcoming Space Elevator Games so you can get an autographed copy of these books there (which is what I’m planning on doing). They will also be available via Amazon (and other places, I’m sure) and when they’re out, I’ll post a follow-up.
This is great news – I’m really looking forward to both of these books!
