Read full description of the books Coyote Horizon:This is the first volume of a two-book follow-up to the Coyote trilogy, set somewhat concurrent with GALAXY BLUES, another book set in Steele's Coyote universe. Though this one concerns many of the same characters, events, and settings as the earlier books, I don't believe that it would be necessary to read the others first in order to enjoy this one. It has the same rigidly structured format as the original trilogy; two halves divided into four sections each, with shifting viewpoints and concerns. Steele has outdone himself here; instead of concentrating on the theme of exploration, adventure, and colonization, he examines politics, religion, diplomacy, telepathy, and many other richly considered subjects in a way that made me feel I'd read something two or three times as long as the book actually is. I really hated the ending, though; not because it wasn't well written and convincing, but because I'd grown so close to the characters that it made me sad.
Read information about the authorBefore becoming a science fiction writer, Allen Steele was a journalist for newspapers and magazines in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Missouri, and his home state of Tennessee. But science fiction was his first love, so he eventually ditched journalism and began producing that which had made him decide to become a writer in the first place.
Since then, Steele has published eighteen novels and nearly one hundred short stories. His work has received numerous accolades, including three Hugo Awards, and has been translated worldwide, mainly into languages he can’t read. He serves on the board of advisors for the Space Frontier Foundation and is a member of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. He also belongs to Sigma, a group of science fiction writers who frequently serve as unpaid consultants on matters regarding technology and security.
Allen Steele is a lifelong space buff, and this interest has not only influenced his writing, it has taken him to some interesting places. He has witnessed numerous space shuttle launches from Kennedy Space Center and has flown NASA’s shuttle cockpit simulator at the Johnson Space Center. In 2001, he testified before the US House of Representatives in hearings regarding the future of space exploration. He would like very much to go into orbit, and hopes that one day he’ll be able to afford to do so.
Steele lives in western Massachusetts with his wife, Linda, and a continual procession of adopted dogs. He collects vintage science fiction books and magazines, spacecraft model kits, and dreams.
