Premise: Anthology series in which authors (many well-known) write stories in a shared universe. The human-allied worlds are at war with the Khalia. We can’t understand each other, we don’t know for sure how it started, but The Fleet is the last line of defense against invasion and subjugation.Ever since I randomly read the second one in this series in 2007, I’ve kept an eye out for the rest of the series. They’re anthologies, the quality is mixed, but there’s enough little gems here t [...]

Back when I first read the series, The Fleet books were introductions for me to many authors that I'd never read before. For that reason alone it's still a great introduction to SciFi, especially, but not exclusively, military SciFi. There's a lot more to it than Mil SciFi alone. Read it in conjunction with the Man/Kzin war series for a double dose of late 80's and early 90's fun from some of the best authors of the time.

I gave up on this one for now. The story is just not engaging me the way I had hoped. I'll let it sit on the shelf and try again in a few months.

Interesting shared world storyline. Nice SiFi background universe. Good selection of stories and writers. Recommended
