Publication history:


Part five, the climax of To Open the Sky.

The year is 2164, about a hundred years after the founding of the Vorster church. The plans of Noel Vorst are nearing fruition, but it won't be easy to get his devoted followers to agree to the final step--reunion with the heretic Harmonist sect. By the way, the title refers to opening the sky to space travel, here accomplished by having a group of telekinetics repeatedly teleporting the ship in stages to its destination. For some reason not explained, more conventional methods of space travel outside the Solar System have proven unworkable.
