Welcome to the official site of best-selling author Homer Hickam.

We appreciate the millions of readers who enjoyed Homer's classic memoir Rocket Boys/October Sky and his three other Coalwood books and have now become fans of the page-turning Josh Thurlow World War II historical fiction novels. Among Homer's latest books is My Dream of Stars, the memoir of space-flyer Anousheh Ansari, Red Helmet, a story of romance and mystery in today's Appalachian coalfields, and The Dinosaur Hunter, a paleontological mystery set in the fossil grounds of Montana. Thank you for supporting Homer's work!

You'll find tools on this site for all Homer Hickam books, including lesson plans and other resources for teachers, reading group discussion guides and city reads, and information for students studying the books. Go here for some of Homer's editorials and other articles, and here for Homer's interviews.

Special Note to Parents, Grandparents, and Teachers! Crater, Crescent, and Lunar Rescue Company, Homer's newest releases, are exciting Young Adult novels set on the moon 120 years in the future. Many Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) teachers are having their classes read these delightful novels that tell stories of young men and women on the future moon. To help get young people 10-18 involved with stories of space, science, that also include such ideas as honor, duty, and responsibility, these novels are the perfect gift. We promise that the young people (and adults) in your family will love these tales of adventure into the depths of space. For more and how to order them, click on the covers of Lunar Rescue Company, Crater, and Crescent, the trilogy of novels in the Helium-3 series!

We're glad you've joined Homer's fans and hope you have fun and learn a few things while exploring our site. It changes often, so please bookmark it and come back to visit!
