Three by Laumer

Enter the worlds of Keith Laumer. From the adventures of self-aware superheavy battle tanks to the intricacies of galactic diplomacy via the clash of parallel worlds, Laumer’s imagination knew few bounds.

In Worlds of the Imperium, an American diplomat finds himself kidnapped by agents of the British Empire, which rules over a parallel world.

James Retief travels the stars, resolving conflicts and avoiding cultural clashes, while battling the endless bureaucracy of the Corps Diplomatique Terrestrienne in Retief: Envoy to New Worlds.

In Bolo, Laumer explores what happens when mankind’s most advanced weapons of war become self aware. 

These are the opening volumes to three classic series, collected in one exciting, thrill-a-minute omnibus.


“Laumer is an effective character writer and knows how to make you turn the page to see what happens next […] Keith Laumer (1925-1993) is an SF author that really should be read if you haven’t come across him before. If anything, I’m surprised he’s been outside of Science Fiction attention for so long but great to see some of his material back in print.”
