THE STEPS OF THE SUN
In a time when America's power has been eroded by energy depletion, and world control has been virtually given over to the Chinese, only one man has the courage to seek new mineral resources among the stars. He is Ben Belson, one of the richest men in the world, a man haunted by the memory of a loveless childhood and driven by needs and desires he can barely understand or control. His dream is to find the means to help America break the stranglehold of the corrupt interests who are keeping it a second class power.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Engaging and effortlessly readable - Publishers Weekly

Warmly involving . . .Tevis' delivery is agreeably fluid and deadpan; and narrator Ben Belson has enough craggy, amiably sardonic appeal to hold the reader's interest. - Kirkus Reviews

SF writing of a rare quality. - Time Out

The poetic imprints of a fine writer's trail. - The Times
