David Drake is an American author of science fiction and fantasy literature. A Vietnam War veteran who has worked as a lawyer, he is now one of the major authors of the military science fiction genre.Review:
"Updating dashing Horatio Hornblower tactics and vintage John Wayne heroics with . . . formidably battle-hardened female NCOs, Drake gives . . . a full measure of appealing derring-do." "Drake's [With the Lightnings] once again demonstrates the author's talent for arcane politics and vivid battle scenes . . . a pair of clever and resourceful protagonists . . . action-packed space opera. . . ." "Drake . . . creates two strong protagonists . . . [With the Lightnings] is an intelligent page-turner . . . the launching of a new futuristic space-navy saga." ." . . vintage Drake, fast paced, heroic, and ending in a rousing climax. Drake remains one of the best of the military SF writers." "[With the Lightnings is] his best and most fun novel . . . I'd love to see a sequel." "I'd certainly welcome more in the same vein." "[Drake] couldn't write a bad action scene at gunpoint, and his sense of humor infuses the characters here [in Lt. Leary, Commanding] with agreeable qualities. . . . Grand fun for lovers of action in high space." "Only a few of us have enough willpower, when a new Dick Francis or the latest volume of a David Drake series comes out in hardcover, to wait for the paperback." "Readers familiar with Drake's style will know what to expect . . . things start running and never stop . . . Drake makes excellent characters out of career soldiers." "He has developed a following . . . just short of cult proportions." "David Drake is now the king of military science fiction." "The keynote of Drake's fiction is realism--grim, gory, and historically accurate." "Drake is one of the most gifted users of historical and military raw materials at work today."
