War World: Takeover

(2011)
(The second book in the War World Reissue series)
An anthology of stories edited by

 
 
WAR WORLD: TAKEOVER is the second volume in a grand reissue of War World that will present Haven's history in a chronological fashion for the very first time. Takeover is a trade hardcover volume and includes eight new stories as well as two previously published yarns. On Earth, overpopulation and rising nationalism require the resettlement of millions of troublesome minorities or the fragile peace between the USSR and the USA will go down in flames. It is up to the CoDominium to solve this problem and it just so happens the Bureau of ReLocation has discovered the perfect dumping ground for millions of unwanted minorities and religious fanatics while the mining companies exploiting Haven's considerable resources need a cheap and expendable labor pool. One hand washes the other, thus the CD Bureau of Intelligence gives orders to subvert Harmony rule and turn Haven into a CoDominium Protectorate. Meanwhile, the inhabitants of Haven are having their own problems due to too many transportees from Earth, too few resources, too few live births and the most inhospitable environment known to sustain life-just barely. If that's not enough, now they have to face a hostile takeover by the very people they left Earth to escape! For more info, visit the War World web site at: www.warworldcentral.com
