Here are two action-packed novels from David Drake's "Hammer's Slammers" series, which set the standard for military science fiction.
In At Any Price, Col. Alois Hammer's indomitable Slammers are called in to support human colonists against a native uprising in this novel-length adventure. But even though the natives' off-world weapons are no match for the Slammers - their ability to teleport gives them a frightening advantage!
In Rolling Hot, the battle-crazed troop of recruits and vets, led by Captain Ranson, must cover 300 miles of hostile enemy territory.

Poor quality package detracts from great story
Audible charges 25 bucks for this poorly packaged download. The artwork is low res and nearly unreadable and it's impossible to add a sharper version since the file is locked. Also, the ID3 tagging is not there, so I have to add that by hand.
To charge as much as Audible does for such low quality shows that they're not interested in giving fair value to the consumer.
Both stories are well written and exciting. Drake's vivid writing makes you *smell* the burned iridium and plastic fumes after the weapons have fired their charges.
I've listened to Stefan's readings Ender's Game, the Empire of Man series, etc. and enjoy his deep voice and range of emotions.
Satisfaction with the story and reader. Disappointment with the poor quality files.
