Description

Original paperback anthology of science fiction action adventure featuring armored battle-suits and battle-mechs. Armor up for a metal-pounding feast of action, adventure and amazing speculation by topnotch writers (such as Nebula winner Jack McDevitt, Sean Williams, Dan Abnet, Simon Green, and Jack Campbell).

Armor up for a metal-pounding feast of action, adventure and amazing speculation by topnotch writers (including Nebula-award winner Jack McDevitt, Sean Williams, Dan Abnet, Simon Green, and Jack Campbell) on a future warrior that might very well be just around the corner. Science fiction readers and gamers have long been fascinated by the idea of going to battle in suits of powered combat armor or at the interior controls of giant mechs.

First, when the armor starts to take over, even the generals may be at its mercy-and under its control. Then solve the problem of armored rescue when irradiated vacuum stands between the frail flesh of the living and safety. And what happens when the marriage of soldier and armor becomes a bit too intimate--and that marriage goes sour

It's an armor-plated clip of hard-hitting tales featuring exoskeleton adventure with fascinating takes on possible future armors ranging from the style of personal power suits seen in Starship Troopers and Halo to the servo-controlled bipedal beast-mech style encountered in Mechwarrior and Battletech.
