The Pirate in PW

Just got back from the World Fantasy Convention in Austin, Texas - about which more soon on my personal blog - to find this wonderful bit of news in my in-box. Publishers Weekly has just given Mike Resnick's upcoming Starship: Pirate (out in time for Christmas) this glowing review in their November 6th issue:

"One of the characters in this sequel to Starship: Mutiny (2005) asks, 'Whatever happened to heroes who didn't think everything through, but just walked in with weapons blazing?' The answer is 'They're buried in graveyards all across the galaxy.' This sums up nicely Hugo-winner Resnick's approach to military SF, which isn't so much about fighting and hardware as it is about strategy and leadership.... Readers craving intelligent, character-driven SF need look no further."
