Outward Bound & "Jupiter" Series
A lot of people seem to have liked Outward Bound, which is nice. However, I've
received a number of queries asking what the other titles are from people who apparently
think the entire series is something by me.
Just to clear this one up, the Jupiter series, published by Tor Books, was conceived by
Jerry Pournelle and Charles Sheffield as a line of upbeat, hard-science, space adventure
intended for young-adult readers, in the style that Robert Heinlein and others made
popular in the fifties and sixties. It's not a series by me specifically, nor a
"shared world", where different writers contribute stories set against a common
background. Outward Bound is the only title of mine in the series at present.
I have suggested to Tor that this be made clearer in future releases, and that a list
of previous titles should be included.
