If you didn't like Out Of The Dark - please stop whining about it & move on. Don't ruin it for everyone else. I haven't read anything else by anyone his author - but this book is on my top 5 military sci-fi list. The story was great up till the end - then WOW !! I thought the surprise ending was cool & I really hope there will be sequel(s). I think there's a lot more material to be had from this universe

If Out Of The Dark is in your top five, you really need to read some better Military Science Fiction; especially anything by David Weber. Then you'll have some really good books for comparison.

OOTD isn't actually all that bad, it is just terrible in comparison to the rest of DW's work.
