    The Butcher’s Bill 
    I don’t think I needed to know more than that these stories are centered around a future mercenary hover-tank regiment to realize that I wanted to read them. The author is a veteran of the Vietnam War and brings to these stories his own particular brand of realism and grit. 
    Interspersed amongst the narratives are short chapters detailing specifics about the world, such as how Powerguns, Supertanks, or Hammer’s Regiment actually work. It’s this kind of detail that lends these stories authenticity and gives them more weight. I like this a lot, it brings this world to life.
    The Slammers are a mercenary unit that are contracted to help one side or the other (usually the richest) win a conflict. It’s an interesting choice for a protagonist, one which I haven’t seen before. This series is unique from other science fiction and deserves more attention, plus I’m always a sucker for a nice Omnibus edition.

    The Complete Hammer's Slammers a Good Read

    A collection of Hammer's Slammers stories, many of which I had read previously. All were worth rereading and contribute to an overall enjoyment of the experience. Readers unfamiliar with the series should be warned that it is about a unit of mercenaries and not a host of specific characters. There is no real central character in every story. The closest to this is Colonel Hammer himself. A few others make several appearances. A number of the stories only involve the unit in a peripheral fashion. Looking for military science fiction? This is worth a read, but do not expect the stories to be all about the fighting, they are not. While there is action, much of the tale is in the men and women who make up the unit and how they solve problems.
