Customer Review

on 2 March 1998
Read this book for the first short story: Why commando raids to obtain small amounts of a plant? Treecats give new meanings to the words: telepath, spy, caution. This even explains why treecats can be sentient, but never bothered to come down from the 'trees.'
David Drake didn't bother to read any of the HH stories before mailing his garbage in. Read any WW1 'white man's burden' story instead, you'll feel better. (Drake's idea of making the Manties look good is to insult them less than his other characters.) He offers an excuse at the end: Parts of the story actually happened in Egypt long ago. I guess this makes it God's fault?
S.M. Stirling did read the books, an excellent emulation. He manages to make the PRH leadership into worthwhile people, with courage, strenght and problems.. After all, Honor needs 'great' enemies to overcome..
The last part is by Weber again, and is a condensed history. Some rehash of the HH appendixes, but much is new: How the Solarian league and Haven came to be.
