Old, but still very, very readable.
A good well written sci-fi adventure by one of the best in the field. Most people tend to think of the big technically awesome
stories when you think of Jerry Pournelle, especially those written with other authors such as Larry Nivem etc but I prefer his shorter more character driven books with almost traditional story lines & heroes. Janissaries has always been a favourite of mine, a great
pity they stopped after three books without any conclusion to the series.
