    1. It has been a while since I read the first book in the Starfist series but from what I remember both of these novels are pretty consistent in what they do well and what they can t quite get right Military Sci Fi typically hangs around one of two places in the spectrum of genre, either the author was a veteran and is trying to write their experiences in a semi fictional way or it s a pulp fiction style paperback that was written for fun Starfist hangs somewhat in the middle of these two things be [...]

    2. I liked it Hence the 3 starsI just liked it a little bit less than the first one.I just wanted a bit characterisation this time A bit fleshing out of Bass, Dean and Claypoole, Sherman s protagonists till now.I love Charlie Bass s character and really wanted to read of him On the other hand i really appreciated thenew characters that Sherman introduced like Landser, Chief Long, Brigadier Sturgeon and the Ambassador and these where fleshed out than the mains Also, there was need for some editi [...]

    3. Wonderfully terrible sci fi In depth descriptions of impossible future warfare, unbearable machismo, all that good stuff A fun, crazy simple story to read on autopilot during a flight Which is how I read this, actually As far as what happens, this book sees series heroes Dean and Claypoole, PFC marines in the future space marines, called the FIST Their battalion, 34th FIST, is sent to a large, technologically backwards planet that grows, and legally sells, space marijuana to help the local gover [...]

    4. In my opinion this book is not really an all out space marine story but rather a cross between a space marine and a criminal investigation story with some planetary politics mixed into it It manages to balance the two quite well though and, as you see from my rating, I quite liked it.I never really found the book dull even though it alternates between training the rather useless excuse for planetary forces, detective work and some real marine action In general it s a well written book.Having sai [...]

    6. School of Fire StarFist Book II is Sherman and Cragg s second Military Science fiction outing into the StarFist Universe In this book, the best and bravest are sent on a Cadre mission to train the police force of a member world While it is an acceptable read for MilFic fans with some interesting world and character building, it suffers from a predictable ending and some slightly slow plotting at times For fans of MilFic it s perfectly fine mind candy, but for others it may not appeal You can fin [...]

    7. Sent to Wanderjahr on a peacekeeping mission, the Confederation Marines must deal with both the politicians in charge and a guerrrilla force bent on change and violence No one can be trusted so the Men of the 34th FIST do what they do best fight.

    8. Space marines helping space Germans versus space insurgents Meh Okay My father swears by this series but I just never got into it Might give it another go sometime.
