Join Great Novels of the 22nd Century for a reading group discussion of The Calculating Stars and The Fated Sky by Mary Robinette Kowal!
Mary Robinette Kowal's science fiction debut, The Calculating Stars, explores the premise behind her award-winning "Lady Astronaut of Mars." Elma York’s drive to become the first Lady Astronaut is so strong that even the most dearly held conventions of society may not stand a chance against her. Continuing the grand sweep of alternate history begun in The Calculating Stars, The Fated Sky looks forward to 1961, when mankind is well-established on the moon and looking forward to its next step: journeying to, and eventually colonizing, Mars. This gripping look at the real conflicts behind a fantastical space race will put a new spin on our visions of what might have been.
