Overview

Hostile space navies, revolt in the ranks, scheming robots are only the beginning of Rosinante's governor Charles Cantrell's problems. As Rosinante, former space colony, now an independent worldlet, orbits further from Earth Cantrell's problems aren't getting better, they're getting worse! Caught in the middle of an outer space conflict between the U. S. and Japan, the lives of everyone living in the fragile habitat of Rosinante is vulnerable to bombs, missiles and sabotage. Betrayed from within, schemed against from without, Cantrell would have to act fast and think faster if he was to save Rosinante and protect its inhabitants. The only thing the hapless governor had going for him was that the robots believed Cantrell had God on his side! "The story elements come early, fast, and furious," Dani Sweig writes of the Rosinante trilogy, "Gilliland's quirky mix of eccentric characters, cynical power politics, and old-style hard sf engineering-in-space is fun to read. Gilliland's novels are about people who, mostly through accident of circumstance, find themselves holding a tiger by the tail, with a choice of hanging on or being eaten."

THE PIRATES OF ROSINANTE... the rosinante trilogy is one of my favorite series. it has everything from sex... kinky sex... violence... political intrigue... the NORTH AMERICAN UNION... an ISLAM religious sort of point of view... immigration issues... monetary/economy issues... a reactionary religious American government... GENE splicing... perverted artificial intelligent computers... the new American, NAU capital is here in St Louis at EARTH CITY... how can a south county boy not love it so i say check REVOLUTION FROM ROSINANTE out. i guarantee it is a bent, funny and unique fast paced ride that is relevant with every new story from today's newspaper to tomorrows next headline let me know what you think.
