Rude Astronauts

Allen Steele

Publication date : 1992

Old Earth Books

This collection of stories includes Allen Steele's first published short story Live From The Mars Hotel. Given the references to the Grateful Dead in other books by Steele this must be a reference to the Grateful Dead album.

Live From The Mars Hotel was first published in Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction magazine in 1988.

In Rude Astronauts, Allen Steele presents some of his finest stories - including the Diamondback Jack Trilogy and his first published story, Live From The Mars Hotel - along with excerpts of the nonfiction science writing with which he made his name. In Steeleís universe, the stars are cold, space is big, and itís the normal people who make things interesting.
