Cook, Glen - Starfishers 2 - Starfishers
Overview The ongoing war between Humanity and the Ulant is a battle of attrition that Humanity is losing. Humans do, however, have one technological advantage - trans-hyperdrive technology. Using this technology, specially designed and outfitted spaceships - humanity's climber fleet - can, under very narrow and strenuous conditions, pass through space undetected.
Passage at Arms tells the intimate, detailed, and harrowing story of a climber crew and its captain during a critical juncture of the war.

A Path to Coldness of Heart. At long last, the conclusion to Glen Cook's Dread Empire saga has arrived!
King Bragi Far away View Product. Before there was Black Company, there was the Dread Empire, an omnibus collection the first I left it out because Cook largely leaves it out of the novel. All we get are the absolute essentials: humanity, it seems, is at war with an alien race called the Ulant. Who are the Ulant? Why are they fighting humanity? What will happen if humanity loses? Their lives are lived in present tense, just like the narration. This is where the use of science fiction becomes apparent. For most readers today, it is nearly impossible to think of World War II as anything other than a morality play.
But in this respect World War II is by far the exception, not the rule.
By setting his story amid a war between humans and aliens, Cook is able to tell a story in the simplest of terms. Us vs. We are humans and so can readily identify with the characters, but are they the Good Guys? Is it a just war? All they can do is try to survive, and that means doing their job and somehow being lucky enough to live through ten missions.

Neither novel describes normal human relations but rather the Boat and Climber become the world for the duration. Comment by Norm Stein — March 14, You are commenting using your WordPress.
