Cool space opera,

This review is from: Vitalis Omnibus (Kindle Edition)
"Vitalis Omnibus" is pretty long--because it contains *seven* entries from the Vitalis series--and it slays.
The plot of these short-ish stories fuses ideas from "A Fire Upon The Deep" by Vernor Vinge, and the Blakes 7 episode "Trial": high-tech humanoids resort to underworld survival techniques on the fringes of civilisation, and are menaced by a mysterious, global lifeform. I would not hesitate to place "Vitalis Omnibus" in this lofty company. Actually, Halstead's limitless imagination makes his book even more fun than those two--albeit I suppose the tyrannosaurs would have been difficult for B7's modelling department to bring to life.
On this evidence, Halstead is definitely an author to check out.
