Default Neuffer Rings

I know this is a very old thread but wondering if any of you are still around. Bruce Neuffer was my father in law. I have the original paper that he wrote on the Single Stage to Orbit vehicle. I had never heard of it until after his death.

Approved for now, if you can help this person, please do. GdM

Hi! I'm the originator of this thread.

Wish I'd checked back regularly! Shortly after I posted this, another posted plea resulted in a colleague of your father-in-law sending me a copy of the original paper. But it would still be nice to talk to someone else who knew him.

Bruce H. Neuffer (1923-1982) developed the SSTO space station concept while
at General Electric. He is buried at Beulah Baptist Church Cemetery, Boaz,
Marshall County, Alabama https://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/f...gr&GRid(698852. I think that his concept will prove to be far more impo
rtant to the future of humanity than just about any other, and I was proud
to publicize his design in my novel.

The Pulpless.com edition of Kings of the High Frontier is long gone, but it
was the first electronic-format novel to win a major literary award (Prome
theus). A hardback, limited edition came out in 1998. Copies can occasional
ly be found on eBay.

The Neuffer Ring is prominently displayed on the cover of the forthcoming e
pub version of KOTHF. The illo is by renowned space researcher/historian/en
thusiast Tom Brosz (who first turned me on to Neuffer). The book is not bei
ng updated, but should now be considered a #rocketpunk #alternatehistory #s
pace #scifi thriller. :-)

Here is the cover for the new edition: https://twitter.com/KoPubCo_Info/sta

And yet there is still no Wikipedia article on the Neuffer Ring. Maybe I should start one.

The Pulpless.com edition is not too far gone, I still have mine (and a print version too!)

Great book! Thanks Victor!

Thank you! I've been working on the ePub version for months. Hope to get it
done soon. I had to change the X-15A2 upgrade scenes (Larry Poubelle's Dae
dalus Project) because now I could access a rocket-equation tool on the int
erwebs and realized it did not have enough oomph to go orbital, so... Eugen
Sänger skip-glide circumnavigation of Earth!

And, yes, I have all the old HTML Pulpless.com files of the book. But since
I tweaked even that for the Final Frontier edition, I had to take the Word
edition and convert it to XHTML. Luckily, I've worked with CSS and XHTML f
or years in my former Real Job. --Victor
