"This is the story of the last day of my life, and everything that happened after that."
Back in print after a decade, A King of Infinite Space is the final volume of Allen Steele's award-winning Near-Space series, and a cult-favorite among readers. Ranging from a Lollapalooza concert of 1995 to the asteroid belt of 2099, it's the tale of a young man who dies, becomes reborn, and crosses the solar system in search of his lost love and grows to be a better man, despite himself.
"Steele's hero tells his story in such a way that the reader learns a lot more about him than he is aware of himself. Surprisingly, his bodacious adventures provide good wheels for a rather thoughtful book." Absolute Magnitude
"Alec's story is fast, breezy, funny, and compelling as we follow his journey from spoiled brat to downtrodden slave to hero." Denver Post
