Review: While I do enjoy science fiction, I am not a big fan of military science fiction. I tried to get into the stories in ‘By Other Means’, but they didn’t strike a chord in me. Don’t pass this book up just because I wasn’t able to get into it, give it a try for yourself if military science fiction is your cup of tea.
Defending the Future series: Breach the Hull (1), So It Begins (2), By Other Means (3), No Man’s Land (4)
