"Starfire" by Paul Preuss.

Originally published 1988. Hardcover book, 310 pages. Includes dust jacket, and in very good condition.


When Travis Hill, a Texas cowboy turned astronaut, made a spectacular escape from a crippled space orbitor he became a hero overnight - to the public at least. NASA grounded him for disobedience and tried to ease him into a desk job.

before long, Travis was drinking too much and slipping into the role of "media scientist", trading on his heroic reputation for money and fleeting stardom. Then, defying the NASDA bureaucracy, he managed to wrangle himself onto the perilous Starfire mission and had one last chance to redeem himself.
