Chief Terry Myell died and became a god. Now he's back to life, careening around space and time at the behest of a voice that told him to save all of mankind. Helping and hindering this quest are his elderly wife, his young wife, grandchildren who haven't been born yet, romantic rivals he hasn't even met, a descendant from two thousand years in the future, and an alien nemesis who calls itself the Flying Doctor. Life in the military has never been so complicated.

Commander Jodenny Scott would agree. She's seven months pregnant and trying to come to peace with her husband's death. When Myell reappears with tales of time travel, she's not sure what to believe.

But with an invading army bearing down on Earth's last fleet of spaceships, there's not much time for debate. When the dust clears Jodenny is stranded in an Australia she never imagined, and Myell's more desperate than ever to rescue her—from aliens, from treachery, and from history itself.

Reviews

Praise for The Stars Blue Yonder

“Likeable characters, excellent development, and a series of interlocking puzzles worked out against Australian culture that most Americans will find exotic. A smart, fun, read.” —DAVID DRAKE on The Outback Stars

“The author shows intimate knowledge of the nuts and bolts of what really makes big ships tick...and the careful attention to the elements of Aboriginal culture makes this even more worthy of a reader's time.” —WALTER HUNT on The Outback Stars

“Strikingly realistic...The Outback Stars gives the genre of military SF a very hard shake indeed. Buy this book; I guarantee your sense of wonder will get a workout.” —JAMES PATRICK KELLY on The Outback Stars

“Sandra McDonald knows the Navy,what makes a ship run well and what can make it run badly. Lieutenant Jodenny Scott is the sort of tough, smart but thoroughly human officer we'd all like alongside us in an emergency.” —JOHN G. HEMRY, AUTHOR OF AGAINST ALL ENEMIES AND (AS JACK CAMPBELL) THE LOST FLEET: DAUNTLESS on The Outback Stars
