5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Blue Tyson on September 6, 2007
Format: Paperback
An anthology of stories that appears to be designed to function as a background to the particular Buck Rogers setting that TSR etc. were using.

The only actual Buck Rogers appearance while mobile is at the beginning, in the past, whereas others are characters in the two factions in conflict in the future time.

A reasonable amount of the rest of the plots centre around the recovery of the newly discovered body of said Mr. Rogers.

Arrival : 1 Armageddon 1995 - Flint Dille
Arrival : 2 The Homecoming - Robert Sheckley
Arrival : 3 Triple Cross - Abigail Irvine
Arrival : 4 Tryst of Fate - M. S. Murdock
Arrival : 5 Two Barneys - Ulrike O'Reilly
Arrival : 6 The Relic - Flint Dille
Arrival : 7 Adversary - Jerry Oltion

Buck has to take a space adapted fighter on a suicide mission against a Russian madman, a supercomputer, enemy fighters and space weapons to stop WWII.

3 out of 5

A young man studying at John Carter military school is summoned back to Mercury because his cash is tied up in some plotting by the ruler, and they need his signature. Wilma Deering is in his future.

3.5 out of 5

Ardala Walmar has a brainwave, and after finding out that Buck Rogers' body has been discovered, she decides to send NEO colonel Wilma Deering to recover it, partly out of jealousy. Oops.

3.5 out of 5

Wilma Deering and Killer Kane had a thing, and the latter bailed for the other side, and Ardala is manipulating in the middle.

2.5 out of 5

A pig wrestling crim disposes of his opponent and gets on the trail of Rogers' body.

3.5 out of 5

A disgraced professor finds Buck's body and just barely manages to get him out of stasis before Deering, Kane and then Barney turn up.

3 out of 5

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Duke 1968 on May 22, 2012
Format: Paperback
Buck Rogers is only a participant in the first chapter, the rest of the overly long book being an economic/political conflict set in the future.
