Whether its the soldiers on the front line or the bartenders who serve them, war leaves no one unscathed. These four tales set in Carters war-ravaged Unity Worlds universe -- three originally published in the leading science fiction magazines of the day, plus one story original to this collection -- will leave you thinking about wars effects long after you finish the final words.THE LIBERATORSTheres one rule in the interstellar liberation force: you never take off your helmet.

Even if the atmosphere of whatever planet you are liberating from the vicious aliens does happen to breathable, there could be any number of lethal viruses or microbes. The body armor and comm equipment is first rate, and the aliens seem to be on the run. Then, one day, a soldier is forced to take off his helmet to survive. The consequences are disastrous for the liberation force, but it is no toxin, virus, or microbe that infects the military: its the truth .

He is there to apprehend a terrorist—someone Jose knows well. The situation is complicated by the fact that the alleged terrorist is not the man he used to be, and his past crimes are irrelevant for anyone but the Agent, relentless in hunting down the members of the Resistance. Jose can either help the Agent and betray his friend, or help his friend and kiss his career good-bye.
