"People who think it's dangerous to encounter a new idea, or an honest, open, strongly put exploration of an uncommon viewpoint, are going to be scared out of their fluffy-bunny minds by William Barton." --John Barnes, author of Mother of Storms
SUBJECTS OF THE MASTER RACE
The cybernetic Master Race slaughtered 8 billion humans. The survivors and their descendants are slaves, collaborators -- or mercenaries like Athol Morrison. Now Morrison is coming home to a ravaged America occupied by hundreds of alien species. Here a few desperate resisters hope to overthrow the rulers of the universe. And here, a soldier must decide between betrayal and life -- and death and dreams.
"A powerful novel of Earth's dark future. Erotic and violent by turns, I found it a compelling read." A.C. Crispin, author of the Starbridge series
"Barton has modernized the grand tradition of galactic empire and infused it with philosophical depth and resonance, as well as with a sophisticated grasp of character and motivation." -- S.M. Stirling, author of Marching Through Georgia
