Présentation de l'éditeur

In the New York Times bestselling Lost Fleet series, author Jack Campbell has taken readers and Captain Black Jack Geary on a fast-paced journey of conquest across vast reaches of space. Now, in the three novellas contained in SWORDS AND SADDLES, first in a series of short fiction collections from Jack Campbell, readers can explore the entire universe of Campbell’s fiction. A new author’s note accompanies each story.

Begin by entering “The Rift.” Answering a distress call from a colonized planet, a combat team finds themselves ambushed. They manage to scrabble their way to a remote research facility in the countryside, joining a group of schoolchildren that have holed up with the researchers -- three groups united in fear that their lives will last only as long as they can avoid discovery by the aliens that have come to their planet. When the aliens do come, it becomes clear that despite all the years of research, the humans’ understanding of the aliens is woefully incomplete.

“Swords and Saddles” is one of several alternate history stories that Jack Campbell has written. When lightning strikes Captain Ulysses Benton and his US Cavalry Fifth Regiment, they recover to find an ancient structure in the desert that they’ve never seen before -- and writing in a language none of them recognize. When the next find themselves skirmishing with soldiers wearing armor more appropriate to Roman centurions than 1870s Kansas, it becomes clear that wherever it is they are, it isn’t Kansas. But where are they, then? And how do they make their way home?

The Lost Fleet isn’t the only Jack Campbell series full of outer space intrigue. “Failure to Obey”is a novella in his Paul Sinclair series. When Lieutenant Jen Shen saves the day after a terrorist attack on a space station, she gets a medal, but Ivan Sharpe, a fellow officer and Paul’s former master-at-arms, gets a court martial. In a classic court martial scene that rivals the best in American literature, Paul has to work behind the scenes to save Ivan’s military career.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Nice Sci Fi Collection 14 mai 2013
Par Michael Gallagher - Publié sur Amazon.com

This is a collection of three longer-than-short science fiction stories (does that make sense?), and these are pretty good. I usually don't read that many short stories, but Campbell is a science fiction writer I like, and I've read his space opera series called The Lost Fleet and decided to pick this compilation up based on how much I liked the Lost Fleet series: I wasn't disappointed as these are perfect for reading, for example, after work when you are wanting to relax and finish something vs. waiting for the next day (usually in suspense) to pick the book up and read.

If you enjoy a good science fiction tale without all of the goofy and strange aliens, and are looking for a collection of shorter reads for your commute or after work vs. investing hours in a novel, I'd recommend this one. At $4.99, science fiction lovers (and Jack Campbell fans) should receive more than $4.99 of value.

Although I'm not a huge fan of short stories I am a fan of Jack Campbell. His Lost Fleet series is one of the best works of military Science Fiction I follow. All the stories were great but I truly enjoyed Swords & Saddles. Talk about a twist on the Old West. I would love to follow their adventures a bit farther, the story ended way too soon. But, that's why they call them short stories. A very entertaining read.

...documenting John's/Jack's early science fiction forays and ending with a continuation of the Sinclair saga, and a maddening teaser for more. Especially maddening now that many years have passed, and the elucidation of that teaser in the form of a book has not appeared! John's (Jack's) early writing was every bit as good as his later, as well. Bravo!

All were very enjoyable.

Thanks! Looking forward to your next books!
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Campbell Nails the Military Science Fiction Genre 29 mai 2014
Par Ron Rives - Publié sur Amazon.com

I enjoy Jack Campbell. I have read all of the Lost Fleet series. Campbell understands that science fiction is at its best when the main characters are fleshed out as real people placed under circumstances that only science fiction permits. I am always fascinated by stories involving military units of a certain era placed into different and interesting worlds. Campbell's story about a Kansas cavalry unit finding itself in a different world was worth a reread. The real story-the interesting story-is about characters that seem real, characters that the reader can relate to, and how they react when dropped into a different and incomprehensible world.
