This is a anthology of Bolo stories, but a good sample of Laumer's work. Laumer was a master, though I'm not sure how many people recall everything he did. He was also a great lover of short stories, and why so much of his work has been reprinted in various anthologies over the decades. I suppose his time is past, but as a writer one would be well served to read Laumer. His ability to lead the reader with action packed dialog is superb.

As a book, I suppose I will give this 3.5 stars but if you want to learn something about writing good SF, round that up to 4 and read each line carefully. You're sure to gain much from the experience.
