THE DARK WING. New York: Tor, . Octavo, boards. First edition. First book of the "Dark Wing sequence of Military SF adventures –- comprising THE DARK WING (2001), THE DARK PATH (2003), THE DARK ASCENT (2004) and THE DARK CRUSADE (2005) -– traverses an unusually long time-span from the first volume, featuring the dominating human admiral nicknamed the Black Wing who sacrifices himself to resolve the war between humanity and the alien zor; later volumes carry the epic, with some attendant richness and confusions, onwards through the centuries. A central later protagonist, as wars and dilemmas proliferate, Admiral Barbara MacEwan, shows some welcome Hornblower in Space characteristics." - John Clute, SFE (online). The author's first SF novel. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#145144).
