ULLER UPRISING
FOUR-DAY PLANET
NAUDSONCE
SPACE VIKING

"Uller Uprising is the foundation of Piper's monumental
Terro-Human Future History; the first story where we encounter the
Terran Federation. In it we learn about Odin, the planet that will
one day be the capital of the First Galactic Empire; and humble
Niflheim, which in more decadent times will become a common
expletive, a word meaning hell. This is also where Piper introduced
and explained the Atomic Era dating system (A.E.). Uller
Uprising is set in the early years of the Terran Federation's
expansion and exploration, an epoch of great vitality.

Uller Uprising is the story of a confrontation between a
human overlord and alien servants, with an ironic twist at the end.
Like most of Piper's best work, Uller Uprising is modeled
after an actual event in human history; in this case the Sepoy
Mutiny (a Bengal uprising in British-held India brought about when
rumors were spread to native soldiers that cartridges being issued
by the British were coated with animal fat. The rebellion quickly
spread throughout India and led to the massacre of the British
Colony at Cawnpore.). Piper's novel is not a mere retelling of the
Indian Mutiny, but rather an analysis of an historical event
applied to a similar situation in the far future." -- John F. Carr
