(The sixth book in the Bolos series)
An anthology of stories edited by Bill Fawcett and Keith Laumer
Bolos AI (Artificial Intelligence) are numerous, evolving over the course of decades, even centuries into different classes and types. Bolo are a self-guided tank, it would be more accurate to say that they are land-going battleships on treads. Bolos have no wish to be any more or less than what they are. However, they all demonstrated the best qualities of human nature: honor, loyalty, integrity, duty, even humor. Cold Steel, continues the story of portraying not only the destructive capabilities of these facinating machines, but providing us with their thoughts in delightfully rendered first person sequences. Cold Steel introduces the Melconians to the time-line, with whom Humanity is destined to have another Galaxy-wide conflict that will leave both races barely enough genetic material to survive.
