Keith Laumer's Celebrated Saga of the Bolos
Continues in this New Novel by The New York Times
Best-Selling Author of the Honor Harrington Series.
Captain Maneka Trevor was the sole human survivor of the Dinochrome Brigade's 39th Battalion . . . but she hadn't wanted to be one.
The Bolo known as "Lazarus" — Unit 28/G-179-LAZ — was the 39th's sole surviving Bolo . . . but he hadn't been hers.
The doctors and the Bolo techs have put them both back together again, yet there are wounds no doctor or technician can heal.
And now Maneka and Lazarus must serve together once again, in a war whose stakes are literally the survival or extermination of the human race. They are all that stand between a desperate, secret colony of humanity and destruction: a Bolo commander torn by survivor's guilt and a Bolo whose very existence reminds her of all she has lost.
The odds against them are heavy, the stakes are huge, and surrender is not an option. The Dinochrome Brigade is used to that, but can Maneka and Lazarus survive their own shared past to defend the present
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Author of nine New York Times best sellers, with over five million books in print, David Weber is the science fiction phenomenon of the decade. He is often compared to C.S. Forester (the celebrated creator of Captain Horatio Hornblower) and is the recipient of critical praise worthy of Heinlein or Asimov. His novels range from epic fantasy (Oath of Swords, The War God's Own, Wind Rider's Oath) to breathtaking space opera (Path of the Fury, Empire from the Ashes) to military science fiction with in-depth characterization (the celebrated and nationally best-selling Honor Harrington series, the upcoming At All Costs being the latest installment). Reviewers call Weber "highly entertaining," (Booklist), "outstanding . . . superb . . . excellent" (Wilson Library Bulletin), "remarkable" (Kliatt), "the best" (Dragon), "worth shouting about" (Philadelphia Weekly Press), "great" (Locus), and "the best writer around today" (FosFax). Readers call Weber similar things, but mostly they call the Baen offices several times a week demanding more from their main man. Weber, his wife Sharon, and their three children live in South Carolina.
ABOUT THE CREATOR
Keith Laumer, creator of the Bolo, was renowned both for his fast-paced adventure stories, and for his comical stories of Retief, the galaxy's only two-fisted diplomat. One of science fiction's most popular authors, his novels and story collections have been constantly in print for nearly four decades. A Captain in the US Air Force and later an officer in the Diplomatic Corps, Laumer served all over the world, giving him a solid background both for his fast-moving action stories, including his Bolo series, and his satirical Retief adventures. He died in 1993.
