Jerry Pournelle's 1976 military SF novel Birth of Fire available for Kindle e-reader
The good news: Birth of Fire (1976), a military science fiction novel written by award-winning SF author Jerry Pournelle, is now available for the Kindle e-reader! Here’s the promotional piece from Amazon:
A science fiction adventure novel about the Martian War of Independence as the Mars Colonies attempt to break away from the Earth Federation Government. Garrett Pittston is a member of a Baltimore street gang when he is arrested and sentenced as an involuntary colonist. He must learn to live in the harsh conditions of Mars, and learn the customs of the Mars RimRat culture. He finds himself at the center of the Independence movement although he had never intended to join. Now he must prove himself to be a Marsman.
The bad news: Pournelle needs to invest in some new digital cover art.
