Shara Drummond was a gifted dancer and a brilliant choreographer, but she could not pursue her dream of dancing on Earth. So she went to space, creating a new art form in three dimensions. And when the aliens arrived, there was only one way to prove that the human race deserved not just to survive, but to reach the stars. The only hope was Shara, with her stardance.

The Hugo and Nebula Award–winning Stardance series pioneered the concept of zero gravity dance, which even sparked the interest of NASA and shortlisted co-author Jeanne Robinson for a seat on a space shuttle to become the first actual freefall dancer in space. Though the Challenger explosion cancelled that dream, now Jeanne is being given a second chance to choreograph dance in space … on film.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Travis | 10/24/2009

    " decent book from Spider Robinson with more of a focus on 'hard science' Though there are still some nice bits of humor and creativity.
    His best work after the Callahan books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leon | 9/13/2009

    " Entertaining, but overreaching in philosophy. Robinson lards on the sex (and sexy women), as usual, though I admit I don't entirely mind. Also, Spider Robinson has only a half grip on what life would be like in zero-G, and his mistakes distract me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chanpheng | 7/7/2009

    " The writing is a bit rough but it's a interesting idea book. The sections describing dance and perception are interesting. "

    " I really enjoyed this book, but I have a near-total ignorance on the subject of dance. I would like to know what a dancer thinks of it. "

    " I want to live in this world. "
