Review

400 recipes that illustrate the versatility of the blender. One whole chapter is devoted just to baby food.

The recipes are simple to follow, cover a lot of ethnic territory and follow the blender's basic appeal: Throw stuff in, whirr and pour it out. Someone who's not so comfortable in the kitchen would find these recipes doable. (Bonnie S. Benwick Washington Post 2005)

The book is creative... A nice addition to anyone's cookbook collection and would assist blender owners everywhere. [A book] from Robert Rose that can help you entertain weekend guests, and add some fun into your everyday menus. This book isn't just a bible of drink recipes, it contains recipes for 100 soups sauces and marinades, 100 baby foods, 100 miscellaneous recipes, and 100 of the blender drink recipes contained in 400 Blender Cocktails. While most of the recipes are easy to make, the book tries too hard to cover too much ground (e.g. if you want a book of baby food recipes, mixing them into a book with drink recipes, seems a bit weird). And, some of the recipes, most notably for salad dressings, can mostly be mixed by hand, thereby avoiding the need to lug out a heavy blender, and then do the clean-up. But for a newlywed couple who has just received probably more than one blender, it does offer lots of creative ways to use this must-have household appliance. Tofu Eggnog or Cream of Kohlrabi soup, anyone? --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

David Weber plays (writes) well with others. This combo (and the follow-up with two more novels in the series) provide a disturbing picture of the horrors of warfare, and the emotional penalty paid by those who lead. The main characters are truly leaders, and not managers. The warriors under their command are a metaphor that also applies to the police, firefighters, paramedics... who sacrifice so much in defence of our civilian way of life.

HASH(0x9ef6e840) out of 5 stars disappointed Aug. 19 2004
By RJP. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I pre-ordered this book thinking it was a continuation of the series; it's not! this is the novels 'Crusade' and 'In Death Ground' combined into one hardback book. Now it's nice to have these novels in hardback form and I probably would have bought it just to replace the old paperback copies, but there's no reason for this book not to be listed for what it is.

HASH(0x9f7a5ee8) out of 5 stars Information for Stars at War II May 6 2005
By N. Hanks - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Be aware that Stars at War II is also a republication containing Insurrection and The Shiva Option according to the Baen website. I believe that Insurrection was the first book written in the series but takes place after the events in The Shiva Option. (Reviews option not available yet on Stars on War II record.)

HASH(0x9f3c8ae0) out of 5 stars Worthless - a waste of time and money Aug. 31 2004
By Walter Creighton Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Like the first reviewer, I pre-ordered this book thinking it was a NEW work by the authors. I am a fan of both, but I already have both Crusade and In Death Ground. If you haven't read the two books included therein, this would be a good purchase. Otherwise, save your money. Baen books and Amazon should have disclosed that the book is a reprint, but I guess to do so would hurt their sales.

HASH(0x9efa5c0c) out of 5 stars Not at this price Sept. 24 2004
By David Spiller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I am usually a big fan of omnibus editions in general and of Baen's omnibuses in particular. But in this case, I just don't understand the pricing ($25.00). Crusade and In Death Ground are both readily available as paperbacks. You could pick up the two paperbacks for $15.98. Hopefully Baen will put The Stars at War out as a paperback in the near future. If so I will pick one up for sure.

HASH(0x9eac26f0) out of 5 stars Two Separate Books Oct. 8 2005
By John A Lee III - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The Stars at War is actually two separate but related books under one cover. Both have been previously published. This has caused some consternation from some people who believed they were getting something new and instead got something they already had. If you have not read either of them, however, it's a great deal.

They two included books are CRUSADE and IN DEATH GROUND. Individual reviews appear below:

CRUSADE

I am hooked on the Honor Harrington series. I have spent so much time reading them that, when I was done, I was disappointed because I had nothing else from Weber to read until the next one comes out. I forgot to check for some of his other works. I wouldn't have thought he would have time to write anything else. WRONG!

CRUSADE pits the human federation against a new alien species which considers itself saviors dedicated to saving Terra and humanity for the evil Orions who just happen to be uneasy allies of humanity. It takes a while to figure out how this strange turn of events came to be but, when it finally comes out, it makes sense. Religious zealots are at work promoting a jihad for personal advantage. Their only contact with humanity came at a time when it was at war against the Orions.

A major problem is that the Orions are a warrior culture and their alliance with humanity is an uneasy one. When the new aliens, the Thebans, are first encountered, it is the Orions they attack and they do so in the name of humanity. Resolving this is left up to humanity but the Orions are keeping a suspicious eye on the situation.

The battles are well thought out and fans of space battles will appreciate the book. Just as interesting are the political battles. For me, they are even more interesting to read. It's a good book worth the time.

IN DEATH GROUND

Humanity and its allies face a deadly enemy. That enemy is one so different that even communication is impossible with them. Only a few things are really known. They look like giant spiders. They attack without warning. They are very powerful. They eat most of their victims. The rest they raise as livestock for future consumption.

The naval commanders charged with protecting humanity, and later the rest of the alliance, face terrible choices with frightening consequences. They can't save everybody. That means that the ones who are not saved are going to be eaten. They realize that throwing themselves into battle anyway just increases the odds that all of the allies will lose. Before they can fight the big battle, they must fight rearguard actions and marshal their forces. Whatever they do, people are going to die, people are going to be eaten and the nightmares will come. This book and its sequel do the best job I have ever encountered of pointing out the pain that can come with major commands.

Its not a fun read but it is a good one. Its also a cliffhanger.
