    Summary ô We All Died at Breakaway Station We All Died at Breakaway Station “Prepare all weapons systems” We All Died At Breakaway Station was selected for the Venture Science Fiction series an imprint of Arrow Books not to be mistaken for the magazine of the same name that was published in the 1980s The series also featured books like Cross The Stars and Hammer's Slammers by David Drake who apparently was himself a fan of the novelDespite its actual first publication date the novel is from 1969 but it seems that portions of it were serialized even earlier I can’t really say that this reads like Vietnam allegory although some aspects were likely inevitably influenced by the then ongoing war It has actually aged uite well with one exception which I will get to a bit later The author manages to create a harrowing sense of inevitability This is frankly one of the tensest books I have read in a good while It is uite clear from the opening chapter and the title that we are dealing with a “last stand” scenario It’s the way the author sets it up th

    Summary ô We All Died at Breakaway Station We All Died at Breakaway StationIn many ways the title says it all I found this books recently for 50 cents and I remember wanting to check it out from the library decades ago but my older brother wouldn’t let me Digression my brother would tell our parents he was taking me to the library and to do his homework The reality of it was I his cover for seeing his girlfriend end of digressionI am not a huge fan of military science fiction and what makes this book work in so many ways is that it is not about endless battles in space or on the ground The story is about the toll a war that humanity did not want takes on people The crew of the three ships stopping at Breakaway Station are comprised of men and women who have died and been revived or died been revived and pieced together with various artificial organs Bracer the Iwo Jima’s captain is missing the lower half of his body his eyes and one arm Maxel the first officer has multipl

    Summary ô We All Died at Breakaway Station We All Died at Breakaway StationThis is my favorite of the Meredith books He wrote seven novels in is short career from 1969 to 1979 when he passed away When I first discovered Richard C Meredith I was only fifteen years old I was given a copy of the Timeliner Trilogy by my high school English teacher Little did I know that than twenty years later I would be so involved with Meredith’s work “We All Died At Breakaway Station” his second published book originally appeared in a much shorter form in AMAZING magazine in 1968 The published in 1969 in the form you are about to read Breakaway Station stands out among Meredith readers as his best Joy Meredith has called it his breakout book and after reading it I completely share that sentiment By todays SciFi savvy standards there are many e

    Summary ô We All Died at Breakaway Station We All Died at Breakaway StationThis is some bleak I refer you to the title no nonsense imaginative scifi with a strong undercurrent of body horrorThere are amazing images the appalling situation of the reanimated patched together crew is vivid and memorable The inevitable space battles are just sciencey enough and evoke the setting with admirable tensionThe writing can be tough going The sexual politics are a bit retro at times 'he wondered why she was crying but then women were like that' or words to that effect Compensating that the recognition of sexuality of all kinds is realised to good effect No nerdy sexless tech masturbation here; though cast into unimaginable scenarios humans have recognisably earthy drivesIt's no Forever War or Starship Troopers but I find it impossible to imagine Iain Banks or his peers writing any scifi without the influence of this book
