The names of the seven Mercury astronauts were announced in April 1959 amid a flurry of publicity and patriotism. This work provides authorized biographical details of all 32 finalists for the seven coveted places as America's pioneering astronauts. Since 2003 Colin has been the series editor and sometimes author for the Outward Odyssey series of twelve books for the University of Nebraska Press (UNP). Two of his co-authored spaceflight books for this publisher, Into That Silent Sea and In the Shadow of the Moon, were finalists for the 2007 Eugene M. Emme Award for Astronautical Literature, given by the American Astronomical Society. In the Shadow of the Moon was also named as 2009 Outstanding Academic Title by Choice Magazine.
