Rick, you now have another 5 star review on Amazon. Best of luck at your book signing on Saturday. You certainly deserve this time in the spotlight for your great accomplishment!

I have my book signed by Milt. I will do my review shortly so that it can be entered into the history book!

Still looking forward to this — at this point I'll be buying 7 copies for various cS folks and two more for my own gifting.

I absolutely could not have been more pleased with the signing last night. The store sold out of its entire stock of 25 copies, and then got rid of two extras I had stashed in my car! Thanks so much to everyone who turned out!

Just a quick note to those whose copies I had signed - no problems (books were in fine shape) and they'll be mailed out in a day or two (I'll let you know shipping costs later - I presume media mail is okay so should be ~$4... Box with extra padding).

Anyone who lives within driving distance of Raleigh, NC, and who is interested in Rick Houston's "Wheels Stop" book should head on over to the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences for Astronomy Days this Saturday. Rick will be doing a presentation on his book at 2:30 PM. There was some issue about the museum store getting enough copies of the book for a signing, but I believe Rick will sign a copy of your book even if you have to bring your own copy to the event.

Astronomy Days is a celebration of all things space. I attended last year, and they did a very nice job.

I will absolutely, positively, without a doubt whatsoever be willing to sign anybody's book who cares to bring one Saturday! Believe me ... that's an honor.

A new review of the book by Jeff Foust:
The book is not a dry, mission-by-mission recounting of the more than 100 missions flown in the post-Challenger era, but a more narrative examination of shuttle history based heavily on interviews with astronauts, flight controllers, and others involved with the program.
