Re: Vanguard: Storming Heaven by David Mack Review Thread (Spoilers!)

Now I wish I had not pre ordered the book on my kindle. I could have gone to B&N and picked the paperback up early.

That's not intended as a slight against James's fine story; I just don't want readers to feel as if they've missed an integral part of the saga if they haven't read it.
Yeah its more integral to the Mirror Universe books. Especially the extended version of The Sorrows of Empire.

Seriously, what's the BB code for spoiler discussions?
Well hell, dude, it says "SPOILERS" in the title, so one should assume that one will have things spoiled coming in here. I think spoiler code, while nice, is overkill given the warning in the title.

Re: Vanguard: Storming Heaven by David Mack Review Thread (Spoilers!)

The story ends on p342, and then there are the usual 3-4 pages of back matter. So they're both wrong.

Kindled, currently drunk Quinn on cobblestones.

David, do you try to do specifically 60s decors, fashions and designs in your Vanguard-writing (like the beehives that lovely Italian lass had in the first book)? I am picturing some wonderfully brown, 60s brutalist pavements and prefabs in Star's Landing.

More off-white than brown, but as for style, that sounds about right.
