An adventure three billion miles from Earth.
On August 25, 2012, the Voyager 1 probe crossed into interstellar space. It contained a "golden record" with sounds, pictures, and greetings from Earth.
On March 15, 2013, NASA received a transmission from the spacecraft that said: "Hello. We received your golden record. Let's meet."
Now, internationally best-selling author B.C. Chase invites you on a daring first contact mission into deep space with five intrepid astronauts, one spunky cosmonaut, and a 75-year-old truck driver.
"Compulsively readable... Packed with mysteries and surprises... Enough detail to thrill fans of The Martian." (Hugo award-winning author Tim Pratt)
Previously published as Pluto's Ghost. This edition, dedicated to the team that launched the New Horizons probe, contains an interview with the author from Publishers Weekly Booklife.
"Irreverent humor...Vivid...Memorable...As original as it can get." (Publishers Weekly critic)
"Planet Pluto is a compulsively readable, twisty first-contact tale about a voyage from Earth to the edge of the solar system to meet mysterious aliens. The protagonist is an engagingly irascible elderly truck driver the aliens wanted along for reasons of their own, and his cranky-but-charming voice provides an excellent grounding for a tale full of physical, mechanical, and moral disasters. Planet Pluto is packed with mysteries and surprises, and filled with enough interesting engineering detail to thrill fans of The Martian." (Tim Pratt, best-selling author)
"A fast-paced, exciting, and suspenseful thriller that will keep readers on the edge of their seats. Four of four stars." (Onlinebookclub.org)
"Sometimes different is better. That's the case here.... Fast and fun." (The Oklahoman)
"Chase has the raw talent for writing, and the way he's able to put you right inside the main character's head is fantastic." (Scifiandscary.com)

It is definitely a retelling of Arthur C. Clarke's "2001," whether or not the author did it consciously. But you won't know it until you've completed the book and started thinking about it. I say this with admiration, not as criticism. Nothing is stolen from Clarke, but both stories share the same soul. To say more would involve spoilers.
