FREE Today in Honor of Jerry Pournelle: There Will Be War Volume II

Free Today, Edited by Jerry Pournelle


In honor of Jerry Pournelle's memory, the publisher is giving away today FREE copies of this anthology edited by him: There Will Be War Volume II.

Here's the blurb for Volume II:
THERE WILL BE WAR is a landmark science fiction anthology series that combines top-notch military science fiction with factual essays by various generals and military experts on everything from High Frontier and the Strategic Defense Initiative to the aftermath of the Vietnam War. It featured some of the greatest military science fiction ever published, such Orson Scott Card’s “Ender’s Game” in Volume I and Joel Rosenberg’s “Cincinnatus” in Volume II. Many science fiction greats were featured in the original nine-volume series, which ran from 1982 to 1990, including Robert Heinlein, Arthur C. Clarke, Philip K. Dick, Gordon Dickson, Poul Anderson, John Brunner, Gregory Benford, Robert Silverberg, Harry Turtledove, and Ben Bova.

33 years later, Castalia House has teamed with Dr. Jerry Pournelle to make this classic science fiction series available to the public again. THERE WILL BE WAR is a treasure trove of science fiction and history that will educate and amaze new readers while reminding old ones how much the world has changed over the last three decades. Most of the stories, like war itself, remain entirely relevant today.

THERE WILL BE WAR Volume II is edited by Jerry Pournelle and features 19 stories, articles, and poems. Of particular note are “Superiority” by Arthur C. Clarke, “In the Name of the Father” by Edward P. Hughes, "'Caster" by Eric Vinicoff, “Cincinnatus” by Joel Rosenberg, "On the Shadow of a Phosphor Screen" by William Wu, and "Proud Legions", an essay on the Korean War by T.R. Fehrenbach.
