A small notice of celebration. In the spring of 2007 the first book in the Outward Odyssey series, "Ïnto That Silent Sea" was published, so remarkably a whole decade has gone by since that momentous occasion.

In that decade, 14 titles have been published, and another five are in various stages of development. The original series concept given to me was for just eight books, but as long as there is interest in the series out there, and the University of Nebraska Press wants to keep it going, I'll keep looking for new authors with fresh ideas.

So Happy 10th Birthday, Outward Odyssey!

Congratulations Colin and University of Nebraska on a marvellous series.

Many are masterpieces on their different subjects, in such detail and so well written, a comprehensive study of all aspects of humans and machines in space. Much more than just looking good on the bookshelf, although they do.

I have them all except 'Fallen Astronauts' which I already had in its previous form but am now considering getting as you say it has been updated.

Pleased there are more on the way, thank you.

Congratulations Colin. As both a reader and a writer this series is very special to me. I'm presently reading the two 'Shuttle' books again and have only recently put "In the Shadow of the Moon" back on the bookshelf!

Dom, Mel and I introduced the Payload Specialist book, now titled Come Fly With Us: NASA's Payload Specialist Program on this thread.

It is currently in the copyeditor's hands, and we both are very excited with how it is all coming together at this stage. Looking forward to our final reviews and a projected November timeframe release. We are also working on a variety of promotional ideas that we will certainly share here as we get closer to publication.
