Overview

Voyage Across the Stars by David Drake

Two incandescent novels set in David Drake's best-selling Hammer's Slammers universe together in one volume for the first time. In Cross the Stars, Captain Don Slade has resigned from active duty with the Slammers and headed home for what he hopes will be peaceful retirement with his son and the woman he loves. And, even if he makes it through all dangers, he'll discover Tethys is not exactly ready to welcome him home with open arms. The journey home is an Odyssey of epic proportions and Don Slade is just the Ulysses to undertake it.

In Voyage, Ned Slade has a heck of a name to live up to: that of his uncle Captain Don ""Mad Dog"" Slade of the legendary mercenary brigade, Hammer's Slammers. But Ned's life takes a turn to adventure when he crews for Lissea Doorman, a trade-ship captain who is sent by her conniving guild masters on what is supposed to be a suicide run. The crew of the good ship Swift is after an ancient alien artifact that could revolutionize star travel and Ned must become the warrior and leader that is his inheritance. Jason and the Argonauts meets gritty science fiction adventure in one of best-seller David Drake's most compelling works.

He's been there. His characters breathe on the page. They're brave, flawed, doubting. ..above all real.
