Books by Michael Cassutt

Released: Aug. 15, 2018

"Space-program aficionados will gobble the details like snack chips, and all should be grateful to see Abbey, a deserving man, step out from the shadows."

HEAVEN'S FALL by David S. Goyer
Released: Aug. 6, 2013

"Readers will, eventually, figure out what's going on. But will they care? Some. Maybe. What's really surprising is that authors with such impressive screen/scriptwriting credentials (The Dark Knight, The Twilight Zone) could labor so mightily to achieve mere mediocrity."
Final part of the alien-contact trilogy (Heaven's War, 2012, etc.). Read full book review >
HEAVEN'S WAR by David S. Goyer
Released: July 3, 2012

"Brisk and efficiently engrossing, and as substantial as bubbles."
Second part of an alien-contact trilogy, following Heaven's Shadow (2011), the brainchild of Hollywood A-listers Goyer (Batman Begins, Dark City, etc.) and Cassutt (Stargate SG-1, Max Headroom, etc.). Read full book review >
TANGO MIDNIGHT by Michael Cassutt
Released: Nov. 1, 2003

"A struggle, but rewarding."
Space historian Cassutt's third procedural (Missing Man, 1998, etc.) turns on a deadly microorganism getting loose in a space module. (It should remind Tess Gerritsen fans of the organism called Chimera floating about her space station in Gravity.) Read full book review >
MISSING MAN by Michael Cassutt
Released: Sept. 28, 1998

"Even so, it's not what we might hope for from a writer for TV's The Outer Limits, The Twilight Zone revival, and the brainspinningly experimental Max Headroom."
Absorbing, rather bitter debut thriller about NASA and a team of US astronauts going up in 1999 to join Russia's Mir space station team. Read full book review >
