Debut eNovel “Glitch”, a Story of Discovery and the Unexpected, Now Available

Glitch Cover Final 5JUN13

This is the original retro-style cover. I’ve reissued the book with an updated cover.

Kate Rauner today published her debut novel Glitch, a science fiction story that begins in New Mexico’s Spaceport America. Kate tells the story of Rob Shay’s incredible discovery: a glitch in space that opens an impossible path to a star and its planets. Serendipity led to the discovery and serendipity may stop its exploration. Space is a business and business concerns come first. Not everyone in the world wants to see humanity travel beyond Earth. Governments try to claim control. Rob and his friends struggle to stay employed as even bigger problems rock the nation. At least Rob can get some sympathy from his once-girlfriend who runs a telescope-for-hire business in Australia.

Glitch is a hard science fiction story set in a near-future world, rooted in today’s trends and technologies; a world messy enough to be real and real enough to live in. A fun read for the summer.
