Read full description of the books Phule's Company:WIllard Phule is the heir to a super-rich munitions company, and also an officer in the Legion. Unfortunately he gets a little too gung-ho during a peace treaty, and catches the ire of his higher-ups. They can't court-martial him, so instead they try to get him to quit by shipping him off to a remote swamp planet to command a company of losers. But Phule is far too entrepreneurial and positive-minded to let that get him down.
This is yard sale sci-fi. By that I mean you'd really never give this a look except for 50 cents at a yard sale. It's a slim book with a goofy cover. But it's good yard sale sci-fi: it's positive, well written, with good characters and a gentle spirit to it. It's not epic space opera, but it's great comfort reading. It's not going to win Hugo awards, but when you get tired of doom and gloom, hyper-violent and hyper-sexualized modern sci-fi, you could do a lot worse than this.
