It has to be said that the title of Jack Campbell’s new book is a bit of a mouthful. Dreadnaught is the opening novel in a series called Beyond the Frontier which is itself a spinoff from the bestselling The Lost Fleet saga. Fans of The Lost Fleet will feel right at home but newcomers shouldn’t be put off as Dreadnaught turns out to be a great place for new readers to start exploring Campbell’s universe.The adventure begins in the aftermath of the interstellar war between two human races, the democratic Alliance and the totalitarian Syndic. The Alliance have won and an uneasy peace exists between the two but in the background there is also the shadowy menace of a mysterious alien race known only as the Enigma.

On receiving Stark`s War, written by John G.

On receiving Stark`s War, written by John G. Hemry, I was greeted to a nice looking book the cover depicting a soldier, which I presume to be Stark in his battle armour, looking into the distance as if surveying the battle field. The Moon is behind him. Just holding the book in my hands and seeing the cover gave me pause to think what battles I would be reading about once I opened the book. On turning the book around I gave myself time to look at the back cover to see what the synopsis would tell me, I was excited by it and thought ‘Yes, I am in for a great read’.

There’s even a whole section of blanked out text, allegedly covered over by Darth Sidious himself!
