ENTRY #2 IN CITIZEN SERIES, SEQUEL TO "INTO THE HINTERLANDS. "Science fiction adventure on the frontier realms of empire written by biological scientist Dr. John Lambshead and nationally best-selling David Drake. THE RIGHT MAN FOR A VERY BAD JOB The Cutter Stream colonies were at peace. If everybody behaved reasonably, that peace could last a thousand years. Allen Allenson had known war; it had made him peaceful and reasonable. He was far too experienced to believe the same was true of all his fellow colonists, however, let alone the government of the distant homeworld across the Bight. War was coming, a war that the colonies had to win if they were ever to be more than prison camps and a dumping ground for incompetent noblemen. The experience that had caused Allenson to hate war made him the only man who could lead the colonial army. Allenson knew that he wasn't really a general, but he understood his fellow colonists better than any homeworld general could. He would free the Cutter Stream, or he would die trying. What Allen Allenson would not do, what he would "never" do, was quit. About "Into the Maelstrom" "[The authors] neatly adapt real history to a science fiction framework in the second novel of the Citizen trilogy . . . Drake and Lambshead are telling the story of George Washington as a space opera. . . . [I]ngeniously structured retelling." "Publishers Weekly" About "Into the Hinterlands" Drake and Lambshead combine politics, military expeditions, and deep-space exploration into an intriguing tale Recommended for all SF collections. "Booklist" About David Drake s RCN series: [R]ousing old-fashioned space opera. "Publishers Weekly" on the RCN series. The fun is in the telling, and Mr. Drake has a strong voice. I want more! "Philadelphia Weekly Press" [S]pace opera is alive and well. This series is getting better as the author goes along character development combined with first-rate action and memorable world designs.
