Glen Cook Star Empires Bundle

A magnificent collection of masterful far-future space opera and a time travel tale of harrowing insight from the incomparable Glen Cook.

In Cook’s Starfishers trilogy, Dune meets David Weber in three action-filled, haunting novels of a future where a human Confederation clashes with a rapacious humanoid foe, while dragon-like fusion-beings ply the pathways on the edges of empire–and may hold the key to the galaxy’s future. Then an FTL ship crew undergoes a rigorous test of men and tactics as they attempt a stealth passage past an alien blockade in Passage at Arms.

In A Matter of Time, three twisted strands of time overlap in one man’s attempt to prevent a dark and future. And in space opera masterpiece The Dragon Never Sleeps, Cook spins a galaxy-spanning tale of two contending political Houses maneuvering for dominion of the stars.
