Tales from the Kodiak Starport

Justin Oldham’s anthology, Tales from the Kodiak Starport, features half a dozen short stories about space flight and corporate intrigues relates to aerospace politics in a fast-paced future.  It’s worth noting that the fictional Kodiak Starport is based on a real-world location, that may become what the author envisions.

“Look at what’s happening now,” Justin observes, “Companies like Space X and Blue Origin are pushing far beyond what NASA did with the Space Shuttle.  Space launch complexes are being called ‘space ports,’ with the idea in mind that they will be much more in decades to come.  That’s quite inspiring.”
