Jeffrey Carver's novel SUNBORN with NASA images

Jeffrey A Carver sez, "The prologue to my SF novel Sunborn (Tor Books), narrated to an animated video sequence drawn from a slew of NASA images from Hubble, Chandra, etc. In the case of this particular prologue, the astronomical images actually do reflect the story of one Deeaab, explorer from across the brane-boundary. I think it's pretty cool, which is not entirely bragging, as the real video wizardry was done by a fellow named Adam Guzewicz. Created for a local arts festival, I decided to see if it might be an interesting way to introduce a book to new readers."

Video Narration of Sunborn (Thanks, Jeffrey!)


  1. Thanks! And thanks to Cory for the post. Just to suggest to viewers that this is best watched on full-screen setting.

  2. I had a chance to talk to Jeffrey A. Carver about Sunborn, and the very cool reason he’s giving away free ebooks. He said that coming back after six or so years away was hard, and that he keeps trying to set new challenges with each new book. The chaos theme of the series, he told me (with his usual sense of humor), closely mirrors his state of mind. He also gave me a glimpse behind the scenes writing Battlestar Galactica, and admitted that his favorite character is Starbuck. (No big surprise there, I guess. If you’re interested, you can read the whole interview for free on )
