Buy it NOW if you can, excellent series continues

I picked up the Fleet series as a lark, but now it has me hooked. Book 3 continues an excellent storyline that pits a fragile alliance of humans and aliens against the ravenous Khalia, who are threatening to enslave the entire human race (and have already enslaved quite a few other races). The book in simply a series of short mostly military sci-fi stories. At the end of each story, there is an interlude which kinda a larger more ongoing story in and of itself. While the interludes are a bit lacking in book 3 ( I found them quite amusing in the first 2) The level of writing in book 3 is second to none. Robert Scheckley, Janet Morris, Gary Gygax, heck, I didn't even know Janny Wurts wrote sci-fi(check out her Empire Series with Raymond Feist- AWESOME) And the way the stories intermingle, Mr Drake, you have outdone yourself. Book 1 was just a series of stories that kinda went together, and really needed the brief interludes to introduce you to a new subject.The new stories of book 3 blend together for an entertaining and engaging read. Not only that, many of the same authors have returned to the series and continue the storylines of a whole host of interesting, unique characters. There is a reason I am ordering these books used. They are in 2 words : That Good. I simply wish they were still in print. If you can find them BUY THEM
