War and Space
by Steve Challis
An unarmed Earth Exploration Ship is attacked by unknown aliens with more advanced technology.
The other two novellas of the trilogy are 'The Local War' and 'Battle for Homeworld'.
This trilogy is an attempt to look at whether space war is possible, and like the previous 4 novels of the Bad Boy cycle makes fun of some accepted Sci-fi ideas. This is not a conventional space war book.
