Overview

The first work in David Gerrold's Star Wolf trilogy, this tale pits the human members of the Star Wolf space vessel against the superhuman Morthan crew. Captain Jonathan Korie, hampered by the loss of most of the human fleet to the Morthans and a nearly disabled ship of his own, faces the Morthan threat driven by the need for survival and the desire for revenge. A classic of military science fiction, the Star Wolf trilogy combines rapid action with powerful studies of military character.

I have bought and read a lot of books over the years 200+ books and this is the one that i keep going back to over and over again.

The book starts off slow with a lot of technical information about the star drive and the ship. Keep reading. It is a good story with a very good character and universe development. Looking forward to the next two books in the series.

This story had plenty of action and all of the elements necessary for any true science-fiction novel. The Voyage of the Star Wolf keeps you on the edge of your seat, suspended much like the characters in free fall as you wonder how they will make it out from the terror of the Dragon Lord. It is also filled with humor and kept me laughing constantly. Although a great read, the story had lack of background information leaving me wondering about much of the plot line.

Fast pace and holds your attention. I’m going to read the rest of the trilogy. I recommend it.

Can't say I remember this one well at all, so it must not have made much of an impression. I'll post a better review when I've re-read it.

This is solid military sf with the emphasis more on characters than on whiz-bang space battles. In fact there is only one space battle, that too right at the beginning of the book, and that definitely lacks the whiz-bang element because the starship on which our protagonists are based is hit and crippled right at the beginning of the battle and spend the rest of it trying to limp away with their lives. In its own way their desperate struggle to survive is as engaging as any action-packed battle scene.The story follows a small ship on its maiden voyage - the LS-1187. Her mission is to join up with a massive convoy on escort duty. However the convoy is attacked and wiped out. The LS-1187 barely managed to survive and limp home thanks to the superhuman efforts of its surviving crew. But they return home only to be branded cowards, deserters and a jinx, bringing back luck on the rest of the fleet. The rest of the story is about how the crew struggles with this label and eventually how the redeem their honour and that of their ship.Overall its above standard fare for military sf. The main character is well drawn, though I do feel the secondary characters rang a little hollow (particularly the women), but all in all they're fair enough for a light read like this. The book is the first in a 3 part series, but seems to have been originally written as a stand-alone, with sequels added later. Certainly the ending is satisfying enough and it can be read on its own. This is the first book I've read by David Gerrold, a veteran SF writer and screenwriter, and it was engaging enough to make me want to read more by him.

A black shecat and a light gray tom padded through the growth. It was foggy and their pelts were slicked back. The tom was cairing a small dark gray shekit. There was a larger black tom kit walking slowly behind. "Raven! Keep up!" The shecat called back. "But Cole im tired and hungry..." Raven complained. The gray tom looked at Cole. She nodded and he found a little hollow at the base of the tree. He slipped in and put the small kit down. "Cole, You feed the kits and ill go hunt...." Cole slipped in and layed on the ground by the small kit. "Thank you Ash," Raven layed by the small kit and began to eat. "Eat well young Wolf." Ash whispered...
