OUT NOW–Culture Shock (The Empire’s Corps 13)

25 Oct

A new novel of The Empire’s Corps!

Arthur’s Seat had never sought a galactic role. A relatively new colony world, a mere three hundred years old, the planet was always isolated from the galactic mainstream. But with the Empire crumbling after the fall of Earth, and other planets taking advantage of the chaos to make their own bids for power, Arthur’s Seat suddenly finds itself playing host to tens of thousands of unwanted immigrants, refugees who have been kicked off countless other worlds.

But as the planetary government struggles to integrate the newcomers, powerful factions plot to take advantage of the situation and the refugees struggle to carve out a place for themselves, it becomes clear that the entire planet is on the verge of anarchy …

… And outright civil war may not be far away.

    Excellent book, Since starting The Empire’s Corps, I have looked forward to each new book in the series. But this book hit home with the issues it covered. As an American, I see the same thing happening here that you discussed in the Afterword. As an American, I am supportive of those immigrating to the U.S. when it is done legally and the process is followed, and the immigrants intentions are to become an American. But if you do not intend to integrate and become an American, why did you come here? Sigh, it is a very touch subject to discuss as you have said. And our liberal politicians and their supports absolutely love throwing around the word racist. I also agree with your feelings that things are going over the cliff. We have terrorist organization in the U.S., but our government not only refuses to do anything about it but threatens to create laws that will make saying anything bad about one group of people illegal. I see no easy solution at this point. The U.S. government has allowed things to go too far and regardless of who wins our presidential election on Nov. 8th, there will be major issues. We already have anti-Trump people treating his supporters violently and if he wins, the night of the election I can see the fecal matter hitting the rotating device and it is going to be bad. However, if hillary wins, well, her criminal behavior will spiral out of control and I expect us to be in a civil war within 6 months. Like you, I hope these things do not happen, but I am not deluded enough to allow myself think the chances of it not happening are very good. I wish Britain well in what is to come, our governments have certainly let us down with the corrupt and criminal behavior.

      Maybe when it gets too bad the only solution is to let it burn and rebuild afterwards. Not good, but when all other choices are bad what is left?

    I was a bit disappointed. There was really nothing in this book that was tied directly to other storylines in this series. It also came off more as a didactive tool to push Nuttall’s positions. It was not entertaining.

      Chris does one on one off in this series and has done for the whole series.
      And yes he has a less than optimistic view on the human condition, and it comes through in his books.
      Some of the solar news networks bulletins in the 3rd learning experience were in tinfiol hat territory. That said he is the writer and can add what he wants, I personally just ignore all that and enjoy the meat of the story.
