The Far Stars War


It’s 2237 . . . and the Far Stars War has begun.

Isolated by the light years that lie between them and Earth’s established colonies, the pioneers on the outskirts of the galaxy suddenly face a merciless enemy–the Guerin. An alien warrior race of unsurpassed cruelty, they are bent on the total destruction of every other space-faring race that might challenge them for dominance. Before human and allied alien authorities can react, the Gerin blast world after world into oblivion.

From the terror-stricken response to the first deadly assault through desperate battles to the terrible aftermath of total war, follow the League’s Space and Marine forces as they challenge the enemy with high-tech weapons and old-fashioned courage. The shared universe of The Far Stars War, created by Bill Fawcett and David Drake, showcases ten stories produced by top military SF authors performing at their writing best.

This is a work of fiction. All the characters and events portrayed in this book are fictional, and any resemblance to real people or incidents is purely coincidental.
