An Outstanding Review for My New Military SciFi novel GLORY MAIN

I recently released a novel entitled GLORY MAIN: A Story of the Sim War, which is the first in a new military science fiction series written under the name Henry V. O'Neil. It's available in ebook or paperback from Amazon, but here's an excellent review from a Desmond Hassing. I'm thrilled to be compared to such great scifi authors and hope other people find the book as enjoyable as did Mr. Hassing.

Here's his review:

"Glory Main" is an enjoyable and well crafted Military SciFi novel which does an excellent job of mixing elements of classical Military Scifi like Robert Heinlein's "Starship Troopers" and "The Moon is a Harsh Mistress" and Joe Haldeman's "The Forever War" (In which Governments and Political Movements are rarely a Grunts best friend) with the more modern approach to Military SciFi embraced by author's like Rick Shelley - "The Fires of Coventry", "The Dirigent Mercenary Corps" (That focus on the role of regular infantrymen in the future world without suits of armor and giant lasers like in "Starship Troopers").

On top of all this Mr. O'Neil gives us a moving story of a young and idealistic Lt. trapped behind enemy lines with a ragtag group of support personnel, under armed and without food and water, who must find a way to survive, avoid the enemy and find a way to escape an enemy held planet which reminded me of many 60's movies about world war two starring the likes of Alec Guinness and Frank Sinatra.

I truly enjoyed reading this book and I hope Mr. O'Neil returns to this story soon, I for one will be buying any sequel he writes. I'm giving this book 5 stars and if you want to check out my other reviews you'll see that I really have to like something to give it a 5 star rating. If you like authors like Robert Heinlein, Joe Haldeman, John Ringo, David Weber, and Eric Flint I believe you will like this book.

The book is available in ebook or paperback formats here:
