Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for Armor:

Armor is a fascinating war-story, a unique take on the military SF genre.... Well worth a read.”—Jamie Sawyer, author of The Lazarus War series

“This is a serious book which shows the violence and brutality of war, the cynicism and hypocrisy with which it is waged, and the real and terrible fears of the combatants.” —VOYA

“The book is gripping, forceful, and compelling. The evolution of the characters is a tour-de-force.” —Kliatt

“Well-worth reading.” —Analog

“Steakley’s writing is quite good. He has smoothness and polish that are rare in first novels.... the action is so well-paced that the reader’s interest is continually held.” —Other Realms

 “This book is a must read…. It’s one of those stories where the author understood the human heart and soul so much that there could never be a complete adaptation in any other medium.” —Bleeding Edge Gaming

About the Author

John Steakley was best known for his science fiction writing. He published two novels, including his acclaimed military science fiction novel Armor, as well as four short science fiction and fantasy stories. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
