TRANQUILITY DOWN

Having defeated the alien advance
scout, Grey has finally secured
control of the moon, but not its
future.  With the space lanes closed
and the Northern Alliance still plotting
his assassination, Grey knows
Tranquility will never be safe until the
hostile Congress-In-Council has been
neutralized.  Deciding he cannot
achieve his objectives hiding behind
Tranquility's defenses, he embarks
upon his greatest adventure yet, a
visit to the most violent planet he has
ever imagined - Earth.
Author's note;
Anyone who has seen Johnny Weissmuller in MGM's TARZAN'S NEW YORK ADVENTURE will
quickly understand why this book is so much fun.  Grey is never in better form as the perpetual
outsider who cannot avoid trouble, and doesn't particularly want to, taking on gangsters, government
agents, strutting snobs, and even the Congress-In-Council itself.  The book is also a homage to space
westerns, featuring ranchers, battles over water rights, and Grey's fondest dream coming true, if only
for a short time.  To live on a farm.
NA SALVATION
AND THE STRING

On May 17, 2065, three astronauts gave
their lives to save Earth from a killer
asteroid known as TL-68.  The result of a
comet collision, a huge cartwheeling belt of
space debris called The String now circles
the sun, crossing near Earth's orbit once a
year.  In the Spring of 2070, Grey and
Kris set out to mine seven of the medium
size asteroids as part of a goodwill gesture,
but the Tranquility-American-European
mission soon leads to disaster.  Or so it
seems.  Like every Waters of the Moon
novel, appearances can be deceiving.
Fish out-of-water stories don't get much better than Johnny Weissmuller and Maureen O'Sullivan's
last movie together.  We also have a few references from my favorite subject, Modern Mythology,
and a futuristic city as it might have been envisioned by science fiction's greatest artist;
