Reviews and Reader Comments
"I was totally astonished when I read Outward Bound. There are no words -- well perhaps there are words, I just can't find them -- to tell you what a terrific story that was!"
- EDT, Georgia
"I Just finished reading Outward Bound. I picked it up about 30 hours ago at the public library . . . I read, and read, and read. Thanks for putting your web site on the fly cover. And thanks for writing this great book."

"Where else can one find a good hard-science juvenile these days? Do we really want to deliver our kids into the hands of all those New Age quacks, without even trying to resist?"

". . . depicts a young man's rite of passage as he makes his way from a troubled youth to a responsible citizen of the future. Reminiscent of the early works of Heinlein in its appeal to teenage readers."
- Library Journal
"The action never lags . . . Hogan does a fine job in making real, and even heroic, his young protagonist's struggle to redefine himself far away from anything he has ever known."
- Publishers Weekly
