How to Move Spheres and Influence People by Marko Kloos
"Great change of pace for Koloa

Mr Kloos shows in the short story that he can do superhero fiction just as well as he can do his science fiction novels. Great character development, as well as a very entertaining short story, makes me wish he was able " Read more of this review »

“Keep in mind that without the law, we’re not a military, just an armed gang that dresses alike.”
Marko Kloos, Lines of Departure

“In truth, warfare has changed very little since our great-great-grandfathers killed each other at places like Gettysburg, the Somme, Normandy, or Baghdad. It’s still mostly about scared men with rifles charging into places defended by other scared men with rifles.”
Marko Kloos, Lines of Departure

“There’s no perfect place, you know. You always end up trading one kind of shit for another. Me, I’ll stick with the shit I know.”
Marko Kloos, Terms of Enlistment

“Though much is taken, much abides; and though
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.”
Alfred Lord Tennyson, Idylls of the King and a Selection of Poems

“People everywhere were being told that this war was no continuation of politics by other means, no traditional struggle for limited objectives. It was a fight to the death with the forces of evil, and the stakes were survival and civilization itself. It is no simple thing to make people believe such things and later persuade them to accept a settlement based on compromise.”
G.J. Meyer, A World Undone: The Story of the Great War, 1914 to 1918
