Two books in one, "Galactic Bounty" and "Imperial Bounty", depicting the adventures of a bounty hunter in space, Sam McCade. I liked the 2nd story better because there was more space exploration and the planets that Sam visited were truly intriguing.

But there was one thing that really bugged me: the abrupt changes of POV which became more and more frequent as the book neared its end. In my humble opinion, it's a bad story telling when you lose your readers and they suddenly have no idea who's "t

If you are a fan of swashbuckling adventure a la Hans Solo you will love this book. It was a fast read a semi-predictable. I did not have as much sympathy for McCade as I have for Hans Solo. McCade is a bit rougher and his past is a bit darker. Nevertheless, good locations, great imagery, fast action. An intersting take on where mankind will be in a thousand years of colonizing the galaxy.

The second half of the book is more engaging than the first. Some of the flight scenes were a little dated but for a story first published in '88 not terrible. I'd read more of his work if I can get it from the library. Not something I'd like to pay for

Shelves: sci-fi
I’m embarrassed to say this but I have a soft spot for bad Science Fiction and this linear narrative is as bad as it gets, in a good way.
