The Precipice

A Novel

Asteroid Wars: Book #1
By Ben Bova
Narrated by Scott Brick & Amanda Karr / 12 hours 23 minutes

The first novel of the Asteroid Wars about earth’s near future from the “leading light of hard Science Fiction and space advocacy”*

Once, Dan Randolph was one of the richest men on Earth. Now the planet is spiralling into environmental disaster, with floods and earthquakes destroying the lives of millions. Martin Humphries, fabulously wealthy heir of the Humphries Trust, also knows that space-based industry is the way of the future. But unlike Randolph he does not care if Earth perishes in the process. As Randolph—accompanied by two brilliant women astronauts—flies out to the Asteroid Belt aboard a fusion-propelled spacecraft, Humphries makes his move. The future of mankind lies in Randolph’s hands.
