In the latest episode of the Science Fiction 101 podcast, we review a new book. The Apollo Murders is a novel about space - written by an honest-to-goodness real-life astronaut!
The author, Chris Hadfield, has flown on the Space Shuttle and on Soyuz, worked on the Russian Mir space station, and commanded the International Space Station. You can't get more astronaut experience than that.
Hadfield has also written books before, but until now has focused on non-fiction. His best-selling book prior to this one was the autobiographical An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth. But now he turns to fiction, with a thriller set during the Apollo era.
In the podcast, regulars Colin and Phil are joined by Peter Kuskie to review the book. In an earlier episode Peter had sent in a fiendish quiz which he hoped would stump Colin. Peter's guest appearance this time is a chance for Colin to turn the tables, with a Jeopardy-inspired quiz.
If you've been tempted by The Apollo Murders, listen to our review to see if it's the kind of thing that appeal to you. But do be warned: here there be spoilers! Or if you've already read the book, let us know what you think of it by posting a comment below.
