Hell's Faire

    ISBN: 0743488423
    Baen (2004), Mass Market Paperback, 416 pages
    The final book in the Earth based Posleen war series. This should really have been part of the previous book (When the Devil Dances), but that would have made it a 1,100 page book. I've seen some complaints that these two books needed editing, but I feel that's not totally fair. They didn't feel padded, and I'm not sure what' you'd leave out of them. Sure, there are characters who are introduced in reasonable detail in order to then die, but isn't war like that? I like that you couldn't really guarantee that all the good guys would survive for once.

    The remainder of the books in this universe are share cropped. I'm not sure how I feel about that. I guess we'll have to wait and see.
