Here's what I've been reading recently:
1) Tour of the Merrimack: Wolf Star by R.M. Meluch. I left the Merrimack being boarded by Roman boarding parties and the defenders repulsing them.
2) This Gulf of Time and Stars by Julie E. Czerneda. See blog posting. Finished this weekend.
3) The Lost Stars: Imperfect Sword by Jack Campbell. General Drakon and his division of power troops attacked an internal security fortress manned by Syndicate World "snakes." The invasion and liberation of Ulundi was a trap for the Midway forces.
4) Sedan, 1870 by Douglas Fermer. Started a study of the famous French disaster that ended the Second French Empire in September 1870.
