“Fine adventures, with superb characters and plenty of excitement.”

Locus

“Space adventure / opera with strong female characters and a roller coaster ride of space battles, evil pirates, empire saving, and devil may care, rules be damned attitude…if entertaining adventure is what you’re looking for I’d be hard put to recommend something better.”

Heliocentric Net

For SASSINAK

“Two great writers who go great together tell the story of a young woman sworn to destroy the pirates who orphaned her–even if it takes a lifetime.”Don’t miss Sassinak. Elizabeth Moon and Anne McCaffrey’s wonderful novel brings to mind early Heinlein. Sassinak, the female protagonist, is a powerful and lovable creation. I’m looking forward to more of her adventures.”

–Rocky Mountain News

“A well-written upbeat story with a strong, realistic and really likable heroine. Darn good reading, beginning to end.”

Tribune Review (Greensburg, PA)

“SASSINAK is a pleasure.”

–Washington Times

“A tautly written episodid novel that tells a classic story: the birth of a hero. This is the kind of book I really like to read, non-stop action with good, strongly written, believable characters. And brother, does this story move!”

–SF Review

Well-done…Moon’s nearly unsurpassed skill at realistic military sf raises the book to an even higher level. Highly recommended.

–Booklist

An exciting space romp complete with space pirates, mysterious alien races and a whole crop of nasty humans. SASSINAK should please Ms. McCaffrey’s old fans and, perhaps, win her some new ones.

–Daily News (Bowling Green, KY)

An exceedingly felicitous match, with the authors meshing their styles and areas of expertise.

–Chicago Sun-Times

Brings to mind early Heinlein. Sassinak, the female protagonist, is a powerfuly and lovable creation. I’m looking forward to more of her adventures.

–Rocky Mountain News

Fast paced with believable characters, and a fine start to what promises to be quite a series.

For PARTNERSHIP

“Excellent! McCaffrey and Ball at their best.”

–Tribune Review (Greensburg, PA)

“This adventure is splendidly paced and filled with lively characters. McCaffrey and Ball have created a worthy spinoff that combines the best of the original concept with its own unique voice to provide excellent entertainment.”

–Rave Reviews

“Quite entertaining and captures the spirit of THE SHIP WHO SANG to a surprising degree.”

–Locus

For THE SHIP WHO SEARCHED

“A perfect combination of SF, adventure and romance.”

–Kliatt

“The best McCaffrey collaboration I’ve read so far … interesting and recommended for both McCaffrey have created a marvelous love story in an exciting science fictional setting and then topped it all off with an ingeniously spiffy resolution.”

–Rave Reviews

For THE CITY WHO FOUGHT

“McCaffrey and Stirling create vivid heroes and villains in a complex and deadly game.”

–Publishers Weekly

“McCaffrey and Stirling have produced a book that expands the boundaries of the series to which it belongs, yet remains consistent with the cycle’s overall design. Fans of both writers should be more than pleased with the results.”

–Dragon

“A fun book … we are privileged to witness some of the nastiest villians I have seen in a while… They make this a great book to read.”

–Heliocentric Net

“The action is sustained enough to keep the reader turning pages eagerly.”

–Voya

“Characterization is strong and action swift.”

–Bookwatch

“Delightful.”

–Philadelphia Press

“A top-notch collaboration…More than just a riveting space opera, this vastly entertaining novel offers complex characterizations and the utterly fascinating Kolnari to make the pages of the book turn fast and furiously.”

–Romantic Times

“A great read.”

–ConNotations

“Blends the skill of two writers for grand entertainment…great fun and a credit to both its authors.”

–Starlog

“A thoroughly outstanding piece of work … McCaffrey and Stirling merge seamlessly, sporting wit, action galore, superior characterization, and plausible hardware. In short, it satisfies every requirement for good military sf.”

–Booklist

 

For THE SHIP AVENGED

“Quite enjoyable read. The Kolnari are as utterly vile as most Sterling villans. The climax is splendidly handled, and the final denoument is quite effective.”

–FosFax

For THE SHIP WHO WON

“Fast, furious and fun.”

–Chicago Sun Times

“Oodles of fun.”

–Locus

“Bright and bubbly entertainment.”

–Kirkus

“A light-hearted romp that is sure to be popular.”

–Voya

“Readers will find themselves riveted by the nonstop action adventure that constantl surpasses even the most jaded reader’s expectations, and by a relationship as beautiful as it is indestructible.”

–Affaire de Coeur

“Anyone who loves a ‘romance with a twist’ should definitely try this work since it incorporates a sense of romance into a relationship that is pure and more fulfilling than most lover in the corporeal sense can ever find. McCaffrey and Nye not only spin a rollocking good tale but they inject a ray of hope into even the most cynical of hearts. Sit back and enjoy the reading experience of a lifetime.”

–The Dragon

“The two blend their skills effectively to produce a brisk, well-told often amusing tale…fans of either author, or both, will have fun with this book.”

–Booklist

For THE SHIP ERRANT

“Nye carried on wonderfully, with an active, exciting plot, interesting aliens and other charcters… This is fun, light sf, recommended for all collections.”

–Kliatt

Booklist

“Great fun seeing how it all works out, capped by a charming conclusion.”

Locus

–Kliatt

“Nye’s Dreamland is an original and clever new setting for a fantasy adventure, and she makes good use of it in this complex and insightful novel.”

–Gahan Wilson in “Realms of Fantasy”

Asimov’s

Starlog

–David Drake

“An Unexpected Apprentice is a fast-paced fantasy adventure full of warm, engaging characters and gentle humor. I had a lot of fun with it, and you will, too.”

–Harry Turtledove

“I’ve always wondered what The Hobbit might have been like if Bilbo had been a girl…now I know.”

–Ed Greenwood

“Did you ever wonder how things might have been different if Frodo or Bilbo had been female?”

–Mel Odom

  • #6, Chinese rights to Yilin

For THE NAVY SEALS

“The prolific Dockery makes another valuable contribution to the literature on the navy’s special operations units, one that begins with the SEALs’ five different World War II ancestors, which survived misuse, kamikazes, and sharks to shrink practically to nonexistence after the armistice. The Underwater Demolition Teams survived to play a useful role in the Korean War, whose special operations history is still emerging from a fog bank of secrecy and apathy. Finally, President Kennedy took an interest in special warfare, the navy (under the aegis of Chief of Naval Operations Arleigh Burke) chose to be a player, and the Teams (or, at least, One and Two) emerged in the face of every difficulty military professionals can face from their own services, even before they went to Vietnam to shoot and be shot at. Dockery blends oral history and conventional narrative with consummate skill, making the cook exceptionally accessible to casual readers as well as serious students. Again Dockery’s efforts are likely only to enhance reader approval of the SEALs.”
