MILITARY SCIENCE FICTION AT ITS BEST.
'High octane SF adventure with Smith's trademark twist' Jamie Sawyer, author of The Lazarus War
It was the kind of dirty, violent work the Bastards were made for. Protect a bunch of colonists in the Epsilon Eridani system, whose moon had become a war zone as megacorp-backed mercenaries fought a brutal proxy war. Just the kind of fight the penal mercenary legion liked.
But a hundred headless corpses are hard to explain, even for the Bastard Legion, and soon they are on the run, abandoned by their allies, and hunted by their most dangerous foe yet . . . but Miska's going to play them at her own game.
The Bastard Legion: the galaxy's most dangerous criminals controlled by implanted explosives and trained by the electronic ghost of a dead marine.
'Gloriously action-packed and often brutal military SF adventure . . .' Publishers Weekly
'An exceptional talent' Peter F Hamilton
A 'Dirty Dozen' or 'Suicide Squad' for lovers of 'Aliens', THE BASTARD LEGION series is a down and dirty military SF set in a world of mercenary actions and covert operations.
“Of Rats and Men is a really creepy book, right from the first page. I mean that as a compliment. Author Todor Bombov taps right into our deepest primal fears and then multiplies them by hundreds, thousands, millions. Rats the size of sheep?! One shudders at the thought, again and again.
Bombov predicts an evolution of rats into a human-rat prototype and vividly describes the dark underground labyrinths of sewers where the rats evolve and reign. What can possibly stop them? Perhaps the ultra-intelligent Diogenes? The author imagines a really scary version of that millennia-old battle between civilization and the dark side when ‘men had become captives of their own recklessness.’ It doesn’t look like civilization is going to win this one.”

In order to develop a secure defense against a hostile alien race's next attack, government agencies breed child geniuses and train them as soldiers. A brilliant young boy, Andrew "Ender" Wiggin lives with his kind but distant parents, his sadistic brother Peter, and the person he loves more than anyone else, his sister Valentine. Peter and Valentine were candidates for the soldier-training program but didn't make the cut—young Ender is the Wiggin drafted to the orbiting Battle School for rigorous military training.
Ender's skills make him a leader in school and respected in the Battle Room, where children play at mock battles in zero gravity. Yet growing up in an artificial community of young soldiers Ender suffers greatly from isolation, rivalry from his peers, pressure from the adult teachers, and an unsettling fear of the alien invaders. His psychological battles include loneliness, fear that he is becoming like the cruel brother he remembers, and fanning the flames of devotion to his beloved sister.
Is Ender the general Earth needs? But Ender is not the only result of the genetic experiments. The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Ender's two older siblings are every bit as unusual as he is, but in very different ways. Between the three of them lie the abilities to remake a world. If, that is, the world survives.
Ender's Game is the winner of the 1985 Nebula Award for Best Novel and the 1986 Hugo Award for Best Novel.
