Jonesing for A:2089???

Postby lastbesthope » Sun Oct 21, 2012 7:58 pm

I came across this book in my local Forbidden Planet, much as I hate to spend money in there it was cheaper there than Amazon:

Amazon UK:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Armored-Dan-Abn ... =8-1-fkmr2

Amazon US:

http://www.amazon.com/Armored-John-Jose ... ds=Armored

Anothology of Short Stories about military combat, a lot of it armoured and mek stuff. I have skimmed it and read one or two of them and I like it.

Looks great. Thanks for sharing. I'm sure you're aware of John Steakley's Armor.It's an oldie but a goodie.

Of course, the other classic work about futuristic armor is Heinlein's Starship Troopers.

I know you know about that one! Everybody knows about that one.

Nope, never heard of it ;)
