Waiting on Wednesday: Avengers of the Moon by Allen Steele #RRSciFiMonth

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.  Every Wednesday we get to highlight a book that we’re really looking forward to.  My book this week is : Avengers of the Moon by Allen Steele.  It simply must be fated for me to read this book (of course true scientific minds don’t believe in fate).  But, ignoring the logical and moving swiftly on, I just read a lovely review of a short story by this author over on Space and Sorcery and so decided to go and check out his other works and boom!  I found this – serendipity eh!

avengersIt was an age of miracles. It was an era of wonder. It was a time of troubles. It was all these things and more . . . except there were no heroes.

Naturally, one had to be created.

Curt Newton has spent most of his life hidden from the rest of humankind, being raised by a robot, an android, and the disembodied brain of a renowned scientist. This unlikely trio of guardians has kept his existence a closely guarded secret since the murder of Curt’s parents.

Curt’s innate curiosity and nose for trouble inadvertently lead him into a plot to destabilize the Solar Coalition and assassinate the president. There’s only one way to uncover the evil mastermind—Curt must become Captain Future.

With the permission of the Edmond Hamilton estate, Allen Steele revives the exciting adventures of Captain Future.

Expected publication: April 2017 by Tor Books

    Ooh, good one, I have never heard of this book before, but it definitely sounds like one I would enjoy:-D

    • @lynnsbooks

    That sounds like a book I need to get! I haven’t heard of Allan Steele before.

    this is one I’m wanting to read, glad to see enjoyed it. And since you did, I highly recommend Apollo’s Outcasts, which may be odd reading after this one since it is also a story set on the moon, but not in any way related (I don’t think), but it is very good.

      Hi Carl – this does look good, I haven’t read it yet but I really want to – I read a really good review for a short story on Space and Sorcery (Maddalena is reviewing all sorts of short fiction from various places at the moment) and I picked up this author’s name from their. I’ll definitely check out Apollo’s Outcasts so thanks for that.
      By the way – are you doing your sci fi event in December???? enquiring minds. I know you’re really busy of course so no pressure.
      Loved the RIP event – I managed a few books and a review of Stranger Things – which I absolutely loved – have you watched it?? Anyway…

    I’ve had my eye on this one for a while too – I really enjoyed his last book, Arkwright 😀

    • @lynnsbooks

      I will definitely check that one out as I’ve seen it mentioned a couple of times.
      Lynn 😀
