This collection features not only Allen Steele's compelling short fiction--including his first published story, "Live from the Mars Hotel," and the Diamondback Jack trilogy--but several fascinating nonfiction pieces dating from Steele's days as a science reporter. If you are already a fan, you will want to add Rude Astronauts to your bookshelf. And if you're not a fan yet, you'll want to discover "an author with the potential to revitalize the"Heinlein tradition" (Booklist) --a writer whose imagination travels to other worlds--and turns a mirror on our own.
