"Kick-butt military science fiction." Amazon reader review

Earth basked in the glow of a new interstellar age, saved from enslavement to the insectoid biofabs by the dramatic arrival of the Kronarin fleet. Laden with honors and riches, John Harrison, hero of the Biofab War, can finally live the good life—or can he?

Unknown to the Alliance, renegade biofabs escaped to an alternate universe where under their brilliant Tactics Master they're breeding back to strength, readying a counter-strike against the people of both universes.

Catapulted into a twisted image of his world, Harrison must find the biofabs’ nest and take it out before a new generation hatches. But it won’t be easy—the biofabs have found deadly allies. And in this version of Earth, Harrison’s a rebel on the run from World War Two's victors--the German-American allies. (First published by Tor Books, 1986. 56,000 words.)

    A fun read to lift the spirits and bear you far away

    It's a delight to see this in print again. Rousing militaristic science fiction at its best-the plot complex, the battles desperate and the stakes awesome. The Battle for Terra Two keeps well, too. I first read the Biofab War series in the 90's and still reread it on occasion, despite the sad condition of the original Ace and Tor paperbacks, long out of print. There's about a chapter's worth of characterization, more than compensated for by an intricate plot line, crisp writing and action cascading into ever greater challenges, intrigues and battles. (The mindslavers are especially dark.) A fun read to lift the spirits and bear you far away. Hopefully Berry will publish the other three books in the series-this is #2. They stand well on their own, but it would nice to have the complete set available again. His new novel, The Eldridge Roster, is out-a techno-thriller-scifi amalgam based on the Philadelphia Experiment and the fate of her crew's children. Significant character development in that one and evil that strikes far closer to home.
