Roaches In The Attic 0 - Non-Retrieval

Rated 4.75/5 based on 4 reviews
For rookie Spaceman Harold Douglas, the mission sounded simple enough. Take the squad of Space Marines out, discover why the outpost had gone offline, and bring them back home in one piece. That was before the transport suddenly vanished, stranding them all on an alien planet. Now, they are fighting for their lives against the greatest threat humanity has ever seen. Rating: MEDIUM controversy.

I enjoyed this story, enough that I wish the author had made it last a little longer. The pace is pretty fast, you will want to read it in one sitting. I will read this author again, and recommend others try him out. This was much better than average on the "free" list... much better.

Earth is at war with the disgusting “Roaches”, an outpost falls unexpectedly silent, a “crack” squad of Space Marines is sent to investigate with a “rookie” Second Officer as part of the Transport Crew. They get trapped on a strange planet and have to fight their way out of a hopeless “Non-Retrieval” situation. Sound familiar? It should! Openly borrowing from “Starship Troopers” (Robert Heinlein), “Aliens” (Ridley Scott) and “The Red Badge of Courage” (Stephen Crane) the story is a gung-ho shoot 'em up set on a distant planet in the not-so-distant future. Look out for the indigenous vegetation though. Enjoy as a short novella!

Aliens and alien planets at their best! I could not put this one it cover to cover in one sitting. Strong characters, vivid descriptions and tense action. Definitely put this one in your library, and I'm off to search for more by this author.
