The Lady Astronaut Flies Again! Kickstarter for Mary Robinette Kowal’s Excellent Series!

We were blown away by Mary’s Lady Astronaut series of novels – The Calculating Stars, The Fated Sky, The Relentless Moon and The Martian Contingency (we actually speculated that Apple’s For All Mankind was based on it until we learned otherwise, while still wishing that it had been) and have reviewed and covered this phenomenal series since it was first released:  reviews – “Is this space opera?  Hard science fiction?  Science Fiction Romance?  Alternate History?  Yes.”   interview

It is a fabulous series deserving of its praise  and awards.

Now, Kowal has started a Kickstarter for a collection of short stories based in the same universe – Silent Spaces Short Stories from the Lady Astronaut Universe

which Amazing Stories has already contributed to, urges you to do the same and which has already blown through its goal, to the tune of more than 44k.  I’m pretty sure this means you’ll be getting your pledge premiums….

This is a fantastic series, full of wonderful, compelling characters and a very detailed, logical, coherent “alternate” history of the space program sometimes referred to as “Punchcard Punk” – science fiction in an era of rudimentary computers, where there are no “apps” to download for help with fixing your spaceship.

Please take a moment to support Amazing Stories with a one-time or recurring donation via Patreon. We rely on donations to keep the site going, and we need your financial support to continue quality coverage of the science fiction, fantasy, and horror genres as well as supply free stories weekly for your reading pleasure.
