Threshold: 2010 SF thriller by Eric Flint and Ryk E. Spoor
Thanks to Australian science fiction fan Christine Hawkins and her awesome bibliography of Martian SF, I just learned about Threshold, a recent novel written by The New York Times best-selling American author Eric Flint and American technical writer Ryk E. Spoor. Part of Flint & Spoor’s Boundary series, Threshold was published in June 2010 by Baen Books. Here’s the official promotional piece:
The newest discoveries will take her, A.J., and their friends Jackie, Joe, and Madeline to the mysterious asteroid Ceres – and beyond, in a desperate race to Jupiter's perilous miniature system of radiation- bombarded moons. The next gold rush is on – for alien technology, hidden in lost bases around the system. And there are people willing to do anything to get it – even plan the first interplanetary war, four hundred million miles from home!
According to Publishers Weekly, “This genial, fast-paced sci-fi espionage thriller is light in tone and hard on science and a fine choice for any collection. Despite a character list in the front, full enjoyment of this volume will depend on having already read the first.”
