Foreigner


Dedication

For Quentin and Gin Peterson,
with love and thanks

[Quentin K. Peterson is my only uncle — my mother's sole sibling (my father is an only child). He worked for Lockheed, and took me to a nighttime rocket launch in California in 1968. His wife, my only aunt, is Virginia "Gin" Peterson.]

  • physicist Dr. Ariel Reich [who was a great help in working out the mechanics of the Jijaki space elevator]
  • programmer Ted Bleaney
  • my agent, Richard Curtis
  • my editor, Susan Allison (and my former editor, Peter Heck, who commissioned this novel before he left Ace)

and fellow SF writers:

  • Cory Doctorow [Toronto short-story writer who continued his work on highlighting terms in the manuscript for inclusion in the Quintaglio concordance]
  • Gregory Feeley [Connecticut writer who provided background information on space elevators]
