Nell'anno 1968 dell'Era Galattica il governo della Repubblica, in guerra con la Federazione Teroni, vuole riappropriarsi a tutti i costi della Theodore Roosevelt, la nave comandata da Wilson Cole. Già ricercato per ammutinamento e pirateria, Cole ha tentato di dimostrare più volte che si tratta di false accuse: tutto inutile. Ora, a capo di cinquanta unità, è considerato un pericolo autentico, ma fosse per lui non combatterebbe ancora. In fondo, contro le sue cinquanta astronavi la Repubblica può schierarne milioni... Quando scoppiano le ostilità, tuttavia, Cole è costretto ad accettare la sfida, anche a costo di allearsi con antichi rivali. E l'ultima parola spetterà alla Teddy R., l'astronave che ha già combattuto nei cieli più infuocati.

The date is 1968 of the Galactic Era, almost three thousand years from now. The Republic, dominated by the human race, is in the midst of an all-out war with the Teroni Federation. Almost a year has passed since the events of Starship: Mercenary. Captain Wilson Cole now commands a fleet of almost fifty ships, and he has become the single greatest military force on the Inner Frontier. With one exception. The Republic still comes and goes as it pleases, taking what it wants, conscripting men, and extorting taxes, even though the Frontier worlds receive nothing in exchange. And, of course, the government still wants Wilson Cole and the starship Theodore Roosevelt. He has no interest in confronting such an overwhelming force, and constantly steers clear of them. Then an incident occurs that changes everything, and Cole declares war on the Republic. Outnumbered and always outgunned, his fleet is no match for the Republic's millions of military vessels, even after he forges alliances with the warlords he previously hunted down. It's a hopeless cause...but that's just what Wilson Cole and the Teddy R. are best at.

The next four will be, in order, Pirate, Mercenary, Rebel, and Flagship.

The date is 1970 of the Galactic Era, almost three thousand years from now, and the Republic, created by the human race but not yet dominated by it, finds itself in an all-out war against the Teroni Federation, an alliance of races that resent Man’s growing military and economic power. The rebel starship, the Theodore Roosevelt, under the command of Wilson Cole, is preparing to lead Cole’s ragtag armada into the Republic, even though he is outnumbered thousands to one. Cole is convinced that the government has become an arrogant and unfeeling political entity and must be overthrown. The trick is to avoid armed conflict with the vast array of ships, numbering in the millions, in the Republic’s Navy. For a time Cole’s forces strike from cover and race off to safety, but he soon sees that is no way to conquer the mightiest political and military machine in the history of the galaxy. He realizes that he must reach Deluros VIII, the headquarters world of the Republic (and of the race of Man), in order to have any effect on the government at all – but Deluros VIII is the best-protected world in the Republic. But a new threat looms on the horizon. Cole, the Valkyrie, David Copperfield, Sharon Blacksmith, Jacovic, and the rest of the crew of the Teddy R face their greatest challenge yet, and the outcome will determine the fate of the entire galaxy.

La luna maggiore del pianeta Orso, nel sistema 47 Ursae Majoris, ha il poco simpatico nome di Coyote, un animale decisamente infido. Eppure si presenta come un mondo ideale, ricco di una flora e una fauna interessantissime, tanto che l'autore, l'americano Allen Steele, ha potuto ambientarvi una lunga e popolare serie di romanzi. Questo è il primo e ci riporta alle origini della serie, quando l'astronave Alabama, rubata a un'odiosa dittatura terrestre e governata dai ribelli, comincia il suo viaggio a due decimi della velocità della luce, impiegando ben duecentotrent'anni per raggiungere la sua meta. Le sorprese cominciano al risveglio dalla biostasi, quando i membri dell'equipaggio si imbattono nel primo indovinello: il romanzo epico, i "murales" e il misterioso messaggio che Leslie Gillis – un compagno di viaggio risvegliatosi prima del tempo – ha disseminato nella nave come una folle traccia.

Hailed for his grandeur of imagination and superb worldbuilding, winner of and nominee for more than fifty awards for his outstanding work, Mike Resnick has rightfully won a place as one of science fiction's master storytellers. Now, in Kirinyaga, Resnick presents the haunting and utterly compelling tale of one man's utopia. By the twentieth second century in the African nation of Kenya, polluted cities sprawl up the flanks of sacred Mount Kirinyaga. Great animal herds are but distant memories. European crops now grow on the sweeping savannas. But Koriba, a distinguished, educated man of Kikuyu ancestry, knows that life was different for his people centuries ago--and he is determined to build a utopian colony, not on earth, but on the terraformed planetoid he proudly names Kirinyaga. As the mundumugu--witch doctor--Koriba leads the colonists. Reinstating the ancient customs and stringent laws of the Kikuyu people, he alone decides their fate. He must face many challenges to the struggling colony's survival: from a brilliant young girl whose radiant intellect could threaten their traditional ways to the interference of "Maintenance" which holds the power to revoke the colony's charter. All the while, only Koriba--unbeknownst to his people--maintains the computer link to the rest of humanity. Ironically, the Kirinyaga experiment threatens to collapse--not from violence or greed--but from humankind's insatiable desire for knowledge. The Kikuyu people can no more stand still in time than their planet can stop revolving around its sun. Deeply moving, swiftly paced, and profound in its implications, Kirinyaga is Mike Resnick's most triumphant work to date. His Fable of Utopia is the book every science fiction reader will want to own and savor for years to come. From the Hardcover edition.
