Rip-roaring space opera with a side of magic mushrooms! Fans of Firefly will love Killing Gravity. --Will McIntosh, Hugo Award-winning author of Love Minus Eighty. You might think that giving us a protagonist who can crush spaceships with her mind would unbalance the story, but White does an excellent job of writing thrilling, kinetic action scenes with Mariam and her powers, while introducing real and sensible limits to those powers. --RT Book Reviews Solidly fun space opera from start to finish. --Locus Killing Gravity, by Corey J. White, is an intense combination of rip-roaring pulp space opera action and cyberpunk noir sensibility. --James L. Cambias, Nebula Award-nominated author of Corsair. This novella feels like a blockbuster, full of imaginative worldbuilding and fight sequences. --Publishers Weekly If you're hungering for a snark-soaked adventure with a side helping of fabulous space-craftery and densely packed adventure, Killing Gravity might be what you're after. --Jeremy Szal
