There are many science fiction novels out there. There are far fewer novels based on actual science. Trying to write one presents some challenges: Commercial fiction is meant to be fast, science is slow. Also, in writing from the point of view of the scientists themselves, one has to confront the fact that scientists aren’t the most popular people in the world.
Nevertheless, with my tenth book, Firebird, I have attempted to write a scientifically accurate novel about nuclear fusion. The story takes place against a race between a fictional laboratory I’ve created in Texas and the real ITER project in southern France. If you think it might interest you, check it out. Firebird is available at Amazon and AuthorHouse. Let me know whether I succeeded in what I attempted.
