Book Report: Fictional tales from outer space, Minneapolis make good reads
"Heaven's Shadow," by David S. Goyer and Michael Cassutt (Penguin, $25.95) is a science fiction novel that I'll bet is heading for moviedom. It concerns a near-Earth object named "Keanu."
As it hurtles toward Earth, two manned space vehicles travel half a million kilometers through space to land on it and claim it as their own. One vehicle is NASA's "Destiny;" the other "Brahma" sent out by a coalition made up of Russians, Indians and Brazilians.
