The Cassandra Project

A novel by

2013 Sidewise Award for Best Long-Form Alternate History (nominee)

Two science fiction masters--Jack McDevitt and Mike Resnick--team up to deliver a classic thriller, in which one man uncovers the secret history of the U.S. space program...

Early in his career, Jerry Culpepper could never have been accused of being idealistic. Doing public relations--even for politicians--was strictly business. Until he was hired as NASA's public affairs director and discovered a client he could believe in. Proud of the agency's history and sure of its destiny, he was thrilled to be a part of its future--a bright era of far-reaching space exploration.

But public disinterest and budget cuts changed that future. Now, a half-century after the first moon landing, Jerry feels like the only one with stary--and unexplored planets and solar systems--in his eyes.

Still Jerry does his job, trying to drum up interest in the legacy of the agency. Then a fifty-year-old secret about the Apollo 11 mission is revealed, and he finds himself embroiled in the biggest controversy of the twenty-first century, one that will test his ability--and his willingness--to spin the truth about a conspiracy of reality-altering proportions...
