Friar, Richard:  The Keepers WWIII Part 1.
Book Number: 49600
Infinite Conception Phaze LLC May 2007 8vo softcover. 643pp very good. The Keepers: Part One: WWIII is the first installment of this new and exciting science fiction trilogy by Richard Friar. WWIII is speculative futurism at it's best; relevant, all encompassing and clairvoyant. Friar details the political and historical precedent and the fantastic technological evolution (of the Animalian Project battlemachines) that defines the third world war in 2039. The story begins on an island in the South Pacific where a small population of Allied civilians take refuge to protect their children from the war. Among the island kids is Logan; seventeen and anxious to find out more about the dreaded Apex empire, led by tyrannical yet, persuasive Geiseric. When the Apex captures the inhabitants of the island, Logan confronts the reality that his parents tried to protect him from. As Logan meets fellow POW's, he discovers the bizarre, idealist nature of the third war and learns the story of Geiseric's rise to power. Logan also discovers that he possesses certain traits that may prove valuable in the event of an Allied uprising against the Apex.

Marshall, S. Thomas:  Soldier of the Legion - Book 1
Book Number: 51706
Booklocker.com, Inc. October 24, 2007 8vo softcover 308pp very good. A rough truce divides the known galaxy between the System, the despotic slave empire that rules the inner systems, and the Confederation of Free Worlds, claiming the awesome infinity of the Outvac frontier. When Squad Beta of the ConFree Legion drops onto the primitive world of Andrion 2 to counter a mysterious System incursion they know the Systies are out there somewhere, armored DefCorps soldiers waiting to slice them to bloody bits in a microfrac. The young immortal trooper Thinker vows that this will never happen on his watch. It soon becomes chillingly clear that Beta is facing more than Systies. The ultimate Evil is awaiting them all, writhing in the shadows, merciless and all-powerful, and humanity itself is poised on the brink of extinction. As he travels further into the dark Thinker finds both love and death, and realizes that the Legion has always been his destiny. He is torn between his desire for the violently possessive Valkyrie and the sweet innocent Priestess. The squad is soon seeking its fate in a series of suicidal attacks on hostile planets against an enemy that has never known defeat. Beta One says they are going to change history, but Thinker doesn't care about history. He cares only about Beta and his closest comrades - and he knows that immortality will not ward off bullets.

Marshall, S. Thomas:  The Black March - Soldier of the Legion Book 2
Book Number: 51707
Booklocker.com, Inc. December 8, 2006 8vo softcover 250pp very good. Welcome to the Kitchen of the Gods, a forbidding volcanic cauldron guarded by merciless, invulnerable Omni aliens and giant, primitive exosegs. As the young Legion trooper Thinker and his comrades of Squad Beta fight their way into the Camp of the O's on Andrion 3, they fear their only mission is to die for the Legion. Their enemy has never known defeat, and the squad is helpless and terrified in the grip of the alien's awesome psypower. The battlefield is soon littered with the pitted, smoking A-suits of Thinker's closest comrades.nnThe secrets that the squad uncovers on Andrion 3 will transform galactic politics and launch Beta into a seemingly suicidal attack against Omni targets on a hostile System world in a last ditch effort to exploit newly perceived enemy vulnerabilities. As they drop onto Mongera like microbes, they know it must be victory or death. Failure could mean extinction for their species. Forced to cooperate with their sworn Systie enemies, they meet the O in a burning city and duel with it under nuclear skies. Thinker's Legion lover Priestess is right by his side, and they pledge they will live or die together. They both know that immortality is a cruel joke for a Legion trooper, and the angel of death is with them every instant. As he advances on the O, Thinker is filled with a burning resolve and vows that if he goes out it will be with a record body count.nnIn the era of total galactic warfare, can one squad really make a difference?

Thomas, Marshall S.:  Slave of the Legion - Book 3 of the Soldier of the Legion Series
Book Number: 51710
Booklocker.com, Inc. January 24, 2008 8vo softcover 264pp very good. THE MISSION The Mound rises up against the skyline, an imposing, brooding presence, dark and silent. It appears to be completely deserted. A layer of brilliant white snow dusts the top of the massive circular structure, glittering in the sunlight. Vents on the roof spew faint plumes of smoke that drift off slowly in a light breeze. It was supposed to be a simple recon. Find out what it was, and report back. All Squad Beta knew was that the O's had built it - and it was where they sent their human captives. It wasn't until we fought our way there, with the Mound right on the horizon, that Beta One told us the real mission. I know we're going to die - all of us. But it's all right. We had seen the O's crucified victims, up on metal stakes, on our way to the Mound, and it was as if those poor dead people were pointing the way, raising their wasted arms, opening their filmy eyes, shrieking silent screams. My brothers and sisters, silently urging us on - to the Mound. I'm not afraid of death any more. All I want is revenge. Slave of the Legion is the third book of a six part series that follows Legion trooper Thinker's adventures in the service of the people of ConFree.

Bauchau, Henry:  Oedipus On the Road
Book Number: 55514
United States, Arcade Publishing, 1997 8vo hardcover 240pp. very good+ / very good+ d/w. Okay, you know the drill: In Sophocles's Oedipus the King, Oedipus unwittingly kills his father, marries his mother, then stabs his eyes out years later when the truth of his actions is revealed. Years later, the blind and beggared king washes up on the outskirts of Athens, where Sophocles resumes the tale in Oedipus at Colonus. But what happened in between? Although the early Greeks never satisfactorily answered that question, Belgian writer Henry Bauchau does in his daring novel Oedipus on the Road. In Bauchau's version, Oedipus's life on the road teaches him a new humility and appreciation for the kindness of strangers. Through the love of his daughter, Antigone, and the people he meets along the road, he learns to forgive himself. By turning his back on the power he once had as king of Thebes and instead embracing the compassion he learns along his journey, Oedipus becomes noble indeed.nnOedipus on the Road is a wise and ambitious novel--not surprising, considering its author is an 84-year-old psychoanalyst. Bauchau brings many years of experience to this story of disgrace and redemption, making this latest installment in the Oedipus legend both relevant to modern times and universal to all times and places--just as his predecessor, Sophocles, did more than 2,000 years ago.nnReviewnWell knock my eyes out. Here's a novel that skillfully reworks the Greek myth of Oedipus, taking an obscure part of the tale - the hero's wandering as a blind, homeless beggar after his downfall from kingship - and giving it a new significance. Through characters and events belonging ostensibly to ancient Greece, "Oedipus on the Road" touches on up-to-date themes like multiculturalism, feminism, and psychotherapy. It is a memorable book: ambitious, highly original, often moving, and sometimes willfully irksome . . . . The story satisfies one by its daring, confident use of myth and its vision of healing. -- New York Times Book Review, Sept. 21, 1997nnWell, knock my eyes out. Here's a novel that skillfully reworks the Greek myth of Oedipus, taking an obscure part of the tale ... and giving it new significance. Through characters and events belonging ostensibly to ancient Greece, Oedipus on the Road touches on up-to-date themes like multiculturalism, feminism and psychotherapy.
