Publisher's Summary

Ursis nodded soberly out the Hyperscreens toward the merchant ships, then turned to Brim. "Out there, Wilf Ansor," he brooded, "are real heroes of war. To fight from behind disruptors of warship is something anyone can do. One can always count on lucky shooting to save him from disaster, or heavy armor plate at least. But to face enemy with only black void and thin sheet of hullmetal separating you from disruptors, and then stay in formation, that is kind of bravery we Sodeskayans record in Great Books."

A Ripping Good Yarn

I have to say that after listening to "The Helmsman" every time I logged into my Audible account I looked to see if there were any other books published in the "Helmsman" series. After months of waiting, finally "Galactic Convoy" was posted.

I downloaded this book with great anticipation and set to for a marathon listening session, two days later and after some 13 hours of totally enthralled listening I was done. Bill Baldwin & Timberwolf Press have done it again, for sheer enjoyment probably the best Audible Science Fiction I have listened to date.

The main characters from the first book (The Helmsman) are all present and correct with a variety of the new that integrate seamlessly into the plot where the previous book left off. Bill Baldwin?s vivid imagination and descriptive ability, with the help of an excellent narrative cast put me right along side "Wilf".

As our hero "Wilf Ansor Brim" again forges his way through the galaxy in adventure after adventure, (which I found utterly addictive in every way) I was with "Friend Wilf" sharing his sadness and joy, visiting the worlds he went to and battled the leaguers right along side him. In a book I can ask no more than that.

This book is not a masterpiece of literature. However, if you like I enjoy a good ripping yarn that than entertained for a solid 13 hours then listen to this book. I have already checked to see if the next book is available, and unfortunately it?s not. (Take note Audible)

Excellent Read

Best if you had read "The Helmsman" by Bill Baldwin. Overall very fast moving book that captures your full attention. I listen daily on a 30 minutes ride to and from work. This book has been one that I have stayed in the car to listen to when returning home. If you enjoyed Baldwin's earlier book you should enjoy this one.

An Adventure

This a good story. It is a performance and the actors are very good. The story could be based anywhere, but in this case is based in space. It's about people embarking on a military mission which brings them together as a group, but inevitably, if it involves war, not all will make it through. Some good action events in the story and like any other story a big climax.
