Projekt Ufo: The Case For Man-Made Flying Saucers
Projekt Ufo: The Case For Man-Made Flying Saucers

4.0 out of 5 stars Case Proved, 23 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this book as part of the research I am doing for my own novels, The Reich of the Black Sun series and it has proved useful if not essential.

An interesting books which actually revealed a lot more than I expected. The first half, hence only four stars, is a potted history of pre-1900 sightings and then later reports up to the Second World War. I would imagine most readers would be like me and already be familiar with this material. Then it gets interesting and covers more recent sightings which are, in my view, obviously terrestrial but unusual craft.

I don't subscribe to the view of some less than discerning people, that all UFOs are alien craft. In fact I believe that most, if not all, of these craft were manufactured on Earth. Once they are identified as manufactured vehicles they are no long Unidentified Flying Objects, an intellectual leap a lot of Ufologists seem unable to manage. Some people, but not Harbinson, have the idea that UFO = flying saucer and that the two terms are interchangeable, they are not. It is either a flying saucer, disk or craft, or it is unidentified. It cannot be both at the same time.

A fairly good book which is probably worth reading but not essential although there were some things in the later chapters which were new and interesting to me personally. Recommended but with reservations.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Religon of Peace, 23 Jan. 2015

Again Nuttall has taken a side road in the story of the Space Marines as he follows the career of a girl escaping from a world which is controlled by extreme Islamic principles. She has very little choice of a future other than becoming a baby factory for a man old enough to be her father. Unfortunately for her family, her brother asks the wrong questions and is noticed by the local religious police. Her father helps her escape while the rest of her family face incarceration or death. A family friend, if he can really be called that, helps her to leave the planet where she faces certain death in the hold of a spaceship bound for another system. From here Sameena is determined to set up her own trading empire using the skills she learned from her father and eventually return home and free her people form the oppressive religion which controls them.

The main characters are interesting, the plot flows well and there is plenty of action. It is not about the Marines although set in their universe. The timeline is parallel to the earlier stories and before Book 4. There is an unexpected twist at the end of the book which I would not spoil for other readers. Suffice to say, if you enjoyed the first four books this is worth reading as well.

In reality this is the third book actually dealing with the Marines and, as such, is an excellent follow-on. The Commonwealth has a limited time frame to fend off a military dictatorship armed with a much larger fleet before they are invaded and subjugated. Using a mixture of imaginative tactics, and getting unexpected help from a character who had been abducted in the second novel, The Commonwealth achieves victory at a high cost.

Once again Nuttall delivers an excellent and fast-paced slab of space opera. Plenty of action, plenty of tense moments, and further development of some strong characters, all combine make this an enjoyable reading experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars All the King's Marines won't put this egg back together again., 16 Jan. 2015

An apt title for the end of the Galactic Empire. All around them planet Earth is descending into chaos but still the council of Grand Senators fiddle while the planet burns and plot only to promote their own interests. The marines are banished from the Solar System to prevent them helping or interfering and it is down to a lone pathfinder Marine, Specialist Belinda Lawson to protect the Child Rolande, future emperor of the Empire. To the chagrin of the main conspirators Belinda manages to spirit the future Emperor from under their noses. The third book in the series covers the downfall and destruction of the seat of the Empire from a personal viewpoint. It is an exciting and gripping read which kept me turning the pages until it finished, then I wanted more. Another excellent book from a modern great.

5.0 out of 5 stars No Better Sequel, 26 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Marines are cut off from Earth with no hope of support, resupply or replacements. Avalon is next in line for conquest by the mysterious Admiral, an augmented man who is attempting to vanquish a group of star systems and form his own empire. There is nothing to prevent him and his murderous pirate crews from invading Avalon except for the Marines and a couple of old and underpowered space ships.

"No Worse Enemy" follows two main strands. Molly has been captured by the pirates and finds herself forced to become a sex slave and engineer on the Admiral's own ship. How will she even survive when most of the sex slaves end up cowed into submission or dead? the Sword. The Marines manage to find one of the Admiral's support bases but are even their abilities up to taking it intact?

This is an excellent and highly recommended sequel, very gritty, at times violent, and a real page-turner. "The Empire's Corps" seems to be developing into a compelling series and is essential reading if you are into military sf.
