More Schlock

I've talked about Schlock Mercenary before. I've been reading the strips again, from the beginning, via an "app" for my Android Phone (the app has slowly improved with a couple of versions, and it is great to be able to read the strip whenever I have some spare time). Most recently I've read two of the storylines (books), Longshoreman of the Apocalypse and Massively Parallel.

Howard Tayler has always been a fun writer since the first strip and has improved the drama, story structure, characters, etc. strip by strip. These two are wonderful stories, as good as any SF novels that I've read. Highly recommended.

Addendum: Now completed Force Multiplication.
