Now with new content by David Drake THE MOST COLORFUL MYTH FROM SCIENCE FICTION'S GOLDEN AGE IS REBORN IN SEAS OF VENUS Earth is a dead cinder beyond the dense clouds. On a terraformed Venus the land is ruled by savage plants and the even more savage beasts that prey on them, while monsters out of nightmare swim though the globe-girdling seas. Mankind huddles in domed underwater Keeps, living a purposeless static existence¾dedicated to pleasure but destined for oblivion later if not sooner. Only the Free Companions, the mercenaries who fight proxy wars for the Keeps, live on the surface of Venus. Their warships course the seas, battling one another in struggles to decide victory or defeat for one day, life or death for a few individuals. The Free companions live till they die with the searing thrill of danger, and their deeds bring excitement and color to the bored residents of the Keeps; but Mankind is doomed unless something changes. Few are willing to risk their lives for that change, battling both the terrifying environment and the ruthless oligarchs for whom the status quo means a lifetime of luxury. But there are a handful of courageous visionaries in the Keeps and in the Free Companies where death is a way of life! At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management). "Only a few of us have enough willpower, when a new Dick Francis or the latest volume of a David Drake series comes out in hardcover, to wait for the paperback." -David Friedman, Hidden Order: The Economics of Everyday Life "... the best in military science fiction. Recommended...." -Booklist "... the master of the mercenary science fiction novel. He has developed a following... just short of cult proportions." -Rave Reviews "Drake is one of the most gifted users of historical and military raw materials at work today." -Chicago Sun-Times
