Author: Ben Bova; Read by Christian Noble and David Warner, Introduction by Harlan Ellison
A "leading light of hard SF and space advocacy" (Booklist) turns his sights to the largest planet in our solar system
Grant Archer merely wanted to study astrophysics, to work quietly as an astronomer on the far side of the Moon. But the forces of the "New Morality," the coalition of censoriuous do-gooders who run 21st century America, have other plans for him. To his distress, Grant is torn from his young bride and sent to a research station in orbit around Jupiter, charged with the task of spying on the scientists who work there. What they don't know is that his loyalty to science may be greater than his loyalty to "The New Morality." But that loyalty will be tested in a mission as dangerous as any ever undertaken . . .

“[David Warner] turns it into a work of art which is worth listening to for this reason alone...David Warner gives 'Jupiter' an extra dimension.” —SFCrowsnest.com
“With Isaac Asimov and Robert Heinlein gone, Bova, author of more than 70 books, is one of the last deans of traditional science fiction. And he hasn't lost his touch.” —Kansas City Star on Venus
“Recalls the work of Heinlein in his Destination Moon mode, or Hal Clement in any number of stories: a day-after-tomorrow tale crafted with near-journalistic purity...It's a difficult, demanding mode to pursue, and not many choose to nowadays. But Bova does it magnificently.” —Paul Di Filippo, Scifi.com
