Overview

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 -- though 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.

I bought this on a recommendation, and at only $1, it wasn't a hard decision. Overall, the story was amusing, but very shallow and short. Being mostly used to reading and writing fantasy, I found this a different sort of read. Written in an older style, the author used hyphenated compound words with irritating regularity, and broke the creative writing rule of "Show, don't tell" frequently. Conversations were often used to impart background info or other color, and very often just weren't how people would speak (especially in combat situations). All that being said, it was an amusing diversion to read.
