The global war on terror has a new front—the very edge of outer space.

In the year 2020, Kazumi Kimura, proprietor of shooting star forecast website Meteor News, notices some orbiting space debris moving suspiciously. Rumors spread online that the debris is actually an orbital weapon targeting the International Space Station. Halfway across the world, at NORAD, Staff Sergeant Darryl Freeman begins his investigation of the debris.

Editorial Reviews

"Fujii challenges us to look into the future and consider how the Earth as a whole will confront space exploration and the possibilities of colonization and resource extraction on other planets. Orbital Cloud is the speculative fiction for the twenty-first-century that I look forward to reading."
