Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Titan is practically a planet in its own right, with a diameter similar to that of Mercury, methane rainstorms, organic soot and ethane seas. All of the most detailed knowledge on the moon's geology, volcanology, meteorology, marine sciences and chemistry are gathered together here to paint a factually accurate hypothetical future of early human colonization on this strange world.
The views from Titan's Mayda Outpost are spectacular, but all is not well at the moon's remote science base. On the shore of a methane sea beneath glowering skies, atmospherics researcher Abigail Marco finds herself in the middle of murder, piracy and colleagues who seem to be seeing sea monsters and dead people from the past. On the Shores of Titan's Farthest Sea provides thrills, excitement and mystery - couched in the latest science - on one of the Solar System's most bizarre worlds, Saturn's huge moon Titan.
"Carroll's knowledge of planetary science combines with a great little adventure on Saturn's biggest moon. His descriptions of oily seas and methane monsoons put you in that alien world, front and center. The technology is convincing; I can imagine future astronauts doing exactly the kinds of things Mike describes. I wish I could be one of them." - Alan Bean, Apollo 12 astronaut
"This riveting story, set against a plausibly well integrated interplanetary space, carries us along with its bright and interesting characters. We feel absolutely transported to a hauntingly beautiful and alien Titan through Carroll's masterful weaving of art and science." - Jani Radebaugh, Professor of Planetary Sciences, Titan dune expert, BYU
"It's a fun read! Really makes Titan come alive, literally..." - Astrophysicist and author Ralph Lorenz
