Top 5 All time Favorite Book ever - One of my all time favorite authors and one of my Top 5 Book Series!
pure space opera - nothing much philosophical going on, but there is enough detail to make it an interesting story. My only critique is that the action happens at very slow intervals and when it does it is about 1 page long. Meanwhile, it takes 50 pages to get to the next piece of action. But that buildup keeps you turning the page...

I love the bad scifi. This is an SF bildungsroman which seems to be part of Busby's larger space opera universe. It's one of the most brutal pilot academies I've ever seen written, very much on the Spartan model.

First in the Rissa and Tregare series, and eerily prescient about near history. Scary, and great action scenes.
Karen Dransfield
Another re-read. Continuing the story of Bran. Still enjoyed it. Like the setting.
First read these starting in early 80s, and still rereading..
