"Fans of military science fiction are going to love Guarder Lore"
The U.E.N. (United Earthian Nations) was formed in 2045 to
defeat the United Soviet States which rose out of the ashes
of the Soviet Union. The USS was intent on global
domination and its failure to achieve its goal is due in
large part to the guardian squadron, a block pps unit of
soldiers trained to think and act outside the box. On any
planet, in any situation, when someone threatens the peace,
their word is law and they are the jury and judge and
exexutioner in the field. Local officials must obey them
Over time, they become legends. Most people don't believe
the Guarders ever existed, a situation that suits the
agents fine because it gives them more freedom to work
behind the scenes. Historian Joseph Mullins, after a
particularly nasty and public incident, is given permission
to write the official history of the squad. He travels to
the guardians' headquarters on the planet Aegis where he
interviews long time agent Mr. Frank Buzzer and learns of
his many exploits throughout the years.
Fans of military science fiction are going to love GUARDER
LORE, an action packed story line that starts out at warp
speed and accelerates from there. The protagonist, a
Schwartznegger type patriotic hero, is seen as a man who
will do whatever it takes to get the job done. Shawn P.
Madison has structured a series of vignettes, each one
capable of making into a full-length novel. This reviewer
hopes he does that because his work just whets the
appetites for more stories about the Guarders.
