War World: Falkenberg’s Regiment is a new War World novel, which continues the John Christian Falkenberg story, detailing his adventures and those of the 42nd CoDominium Marines on Haven (War World) and on Churchill, as Falkenberg and Admiral Lermontov struggle to keep the CoDominium from fracturing. On Haven the Colonel finds himself set between the Mahdi and his fanatical forces, on one hand, and Dover Minerals and the Bronson family, on the other hand. While on Churchill, Falkenberg is called upon to rectify the problems caused by the Bureau of Relocations wholesale dumping of antagonistic populations on the hardscrabble world. Nor, does it help when the Brotherhood, a conspiracy of colonial CD military officers, gets involved providing weapons and money to the rebels.
This new War World book is dedicated to my old friend and mentor, Jerry Pournelle, who died in his sleep on September 8, 2017. Jerry was one of the Grand Old Men of science fiction and will be missed. We worked together at Chaos Manor for over 20 years and put out over 30 anthologies and short story collections.
