Letters from Orion
by Kurt Lancaster
with contributions by
Earl Cookson and Kirk Sigurdson


“Dear Aunt Jessica: I jumped ship at Vega. I’m on my way out to the frontier, working as a deck-hand on the Antares.”   —17-year-old Katie


During a renaissance age of space exploration, diplomats, dancers, explorers, ship captains, and their families are populating a new frontier. 

   This audio book archives some of these messages, letters revealing the loneliness, revelations, dreams, and wonder of humans trying to cope with a new way of life on the galactic frontier.

    This is an audio-book that includes two CDs (1 hr 32 min).

  • “This is a very personalised, even emotionalised, future, its characters' soul-searchings and self-shaped quests dominant. ... Some of the poetic language is very beautiful; the transcendental vision is a wonderful set piece; and there are, almost in passing, ideas and concepts that provoke much thought.”  –Steve Sneyd, The Zone

  • “Powerful. Combines complex scripts and emotionally demanding performances.   –Henry Jenkins,  MIT

  • We really liked the writing style. ... a very interesting narrative.-DFILM.com

  • ... a character-based story, whose participants spend as much time talking about their own personal regrets as they do facing the challenges of their shared quest.Science Fiction Weekly
