Sailing in Space

According to the entry in the Encyclopedia of Science Fiction – Hornblower in Space – both sea fiction and science fiction share an affinity for the thrill of discovery and wonder. This article contains many examples of science fiction written with a nautical theme. It is a fun and informative read. (Point of transparency – I read both genres with equal enjoyment. In fact, the first books I ever bought were the beginning volumes of the Hornblower series and some works by Robert Heinlein. The Heinleins are gone, but the Hornblower paperbacks still grace my bookshelves in a place of honor. They are now decaying , consumed by slow fire, but they still resonate with me over fifty years later.)
