About the author:
Stephen Goldin was born in Philadelphia in 1947, but he's lived in California since 1960. He graduated from UCLA with a Bachelor's degree in Astronomy and worked as a civilian space scientist for the U.S. Navy for a few years after leaving college, but has made his living as a writer/editor most of his life.
His first wife was fellow author Kathleen Sky, with whom he co-wrote the first edition of the highly acclaimed nonfiction book, The Business of Being a Writer. His current wife is fellow author Mary Mason. So far they have co-authored two books in the Rehumanization of Jade Darcy series.
Mt. Goldin served the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America for three years as editor of the SFWA Bulletin, and another three years as the organization's Western Regional Director.
He has lived with cats all his adult life. Artistically he enjoys Broadway musicals and surrealist art.
It's the 1980s in a nightmarish alternate-world America. U.S. society has fallen apart under food shortages, fuel shortages, racial unrest and a host of other problems.
A visionary group of people intends to escape to another planet and start a whole new world. But first they must make it safely across the country-stealing gas and fighting off bandits along the way-if they hope to reach the starship before it departs forever.
