    In this first collaboration by science fiction masters Larry Niven (Ringworld) and Gregory Benford (Timescape), the limits of wonder are redrawn once again as a human expedition to another star system is jeopardized by an encounter with an astonishingly immense artifact in interstellar space: a bowl-shaped structure half-englobing a star, with a habitable area equivalent to many millions of Earths…and it’s on a direct path heading for the same system as the human ship.

    Story

    Nice Idea! Hard science not 100%. But fair to good story. Ends in a CLIFF HANGER! There will be at least one more book maybe more..SPOILER..Earth ship lands on a bowl ship as large as the earth to the sun. What does the landing party do? Bring out cutting equipment,brake in and start killing animals and running arround! NO First Concact proatcals. Has some DUMB things happen, but if you hang in their it has some interesting moments.

    In the 20th century Earth sent probes, transmissions, and welcoming messages to the stars. Unfortunately, someone noticed. The Galactics arrived with their battle fleet in 2052. Rather than being exterminated under a barrage of hell-burners, Earth joined their vast Empire. Swearing allegiance to our distant alien overlords wasn't the only requirement for survival. We also had to have something of value to trade, something that neighboring planets would pay their hard-earned credits to buy. As most of the local worlds were too civilized to have a proper army, the only valuable service Earth could provide came in the form of soldiers....

    Story

    Well this book has lots of action and great narration. The story has Earth as peons in a Great Empire. The only thing Earthers can do is fight! So Earthers are hired out to fight wars for others. Nice twist to Sci-fi lovers. Hope book 2 comes soon!

    The Space Marines are in the Oort Cloud, racing in their insertion pods to the frozen planetoid of Tyche. Alone in the dark, outnumbered and outgunned by the cyborgs waiting for them on the methane-ice surface, the hour of desperation has arrived. This novella is set in the Doom Star series.

    What will it be next time? John Grimes has been every where, slept with every one that mattered, and done everything you can think of.! He done it with 22 books that could have been written on about 8 to 10 books. Lets end it now!!

    The Earth died when aliens rained thermonuclear warheads on her cities and sprayed the surface with a bio-terminator. A deadly poison drifted to every corner of the planet, threatening the last survivors with annihilation. For a soldier like Creed, there is only one way to keep breathing untainted air. He must bury his hatred of the extraterrestrials and join the Jelk Corporation as an assault trooper, leaving the planet for outer space. In return for his and other people's services, the corporation will house the last humans for as long as the assault troopers keep winning.
