If you're into stuff like this you can read the full reviewSubverted MilSF Lines of Departure by Marko KloosTruth to be told I was expecting the usual fodder when I started reading Kloos’ MilSF novel But I got something unexpected instead What made “Lines of Departure” interesting by the standards of most MilSF is its very systematic subversion of the tropes of military SF What starts out as a war story becomes political dissection of liberalism

I'd been meaning to read this one for a while ever since Marko Kloos withdrew it from the Hugo nominations in '15 because of the Sad Puppy controversy I respected his decision It also turned me on to two great authors I probably never would have read otherwiseI never really considered myself a fan of Mil SF Not really But then I keep reading great Mil SFMarko Kloos has a style that's extremely readable It's clear as hell with a charming and droll voice It certainly helps considering the topicAliens with overwhelming and irresistible force loss of almost every human planetary colony in fighting among the nations of earth slow starvation and rebellion on earth and mass rebellion within the military itself Kinda sounds impossible and hopeless doesn't itYeah And to make things worse his higher ranking woman just proposed to him and the military has thrown up a ton of red tape barring their union and is keeping them apart Lousy sons of bitchesThis series has got to be some of the most purely enjoyable popcorn fiction Mil SF's I've ever read and this one in particular was like a deluge of all the shit hitting the fan at once rather than the previous novel which was like one damn thing after another The novel is simple in concept and simple in ideas It's survival and endless war from all sides Humanity can't get its shit together and the gallows humor is in full swingNow is this a Hugo worthy novel I personally don't think so but my choice would not be strictly based on how much fun I had while reading it I'd also add the dimension of what it adds to the genre too It doesn't really add anything except as a fantastically good example of a very large sub genre I'm not saying it isn't great because it is great but its ideas have been done for decades and decadesI'm absolutely going to continue it because I am having a damn lot of fun with it though
