A Mighty Fortress
When Melanchthon arrived at the dim red star after a forty-year journey, Theodore awoke from suspended animation eager to implement the Lutheran Interstellar Terraforming Society’s plan to transform a barren rocky world into New Augsburg, a refuge for faith and life.
A challenging plan: move an icy asteroid billions of miles, quickly convert the asteroid into new seas and a breathable atmosphere for the rocky world, then seed the surface with life. Yet Theodore felt confident in his team’s ability to complete the mission.
A challenging plan, made more challenging by other members of his own expedition.
A short novel of technological wonder and human intrigue, by the author of The Confederated Worlds and the Stone Chalmers series.
