Originally published at Reading RealityOld soldiers never die they just fade away Unless they ve become well known but officially exonerated mass murderers Then they become pointed at pariahsSpaceside is set two years after the events in the totally awesome Planetside Events that left Colonel Carl Butler forcibly retired reluctantly divorced and completely alone on Talca 4 with a cushy job at a mega corporation that conducts corporate bonding retreats using one of their maruee products BattlesimAlso utterly bored majorly depressed and drinking way way too much He searching for oblivion but after everything he s done it s not merely elusive it s downright non existentThen his boss gives him a mission He s supposed to investigate a security breach Someone hacked their biggest rival and stole data about a project so secret that no one is willing to admit the hack even happened let alone what got hackedButler s no computer whiz but one of his former soldiers certainly is And she s working in the bowels of the same place that he is Calling in some favors from a former subordinate is easy Finding a friend of a friend working at that rival company isn t even that difficultUntil his source ends up dead The cops want to pin it on Butler not because he did it but because they know he s hiding something and they want to know what that something isButler s hiding a lot including the fact that he s started seeing ghosts of the people he killed on Cappa following him around Talca Where there aren t supposed to be any Cappans There aren t supposed to be any Cappans anywhere off Cappa After all his mission in Planetside ended with him bombing Cappa back to the stone age or so he thought The events that resulted in his current status as retired mass murdering pariahIt turns out that nothing is as he thought Not that the old soldier expected anything different Or betterAfter all he s gone into every mission he s ever done knowing that it might be his last And than a few where he thought he might get stabbed in the backHe just never figured on a shot at redemption before the end Maybe even his endEscape Rating A The dry wry universe weary voice of Carl Butler carries this story from its mundane beginning to its mic drop end Told from Butler s first person perspective we are inside his head every step of the way His internal dialog around and about just how he ended up in this mess his doubts and fears makes the reader feel for him as well as with himWhich makes it easy to get wrapped up in his stubborn refusal to drop an investigation that takes him into dark and deep places and circles back around to everything that went wrong on Cappa His ghosts come back to life but this time they want his help rather than his death At least some of them doIt s his corporate bosses who are in up to their greedy necks in shenanigans that they are willing to kill to keep from seeing the light of day And they have no problems setting Butler up for the fall after all he s done it beforeIt s Butler s dogged perseverance that keeps the investigation and the story rattling along Saber rattling that is both figurative and literalWhat makes Butler such a marvelous protagonist is that the old soldier has no intention of being a hero because he knows that s mostly bunk even though it s what people want to believe What he s doing is what he did on Cappa trying to make the best of a terrible job and limit the collateral damage If he can Whether he becomes part of it or notSpaceside is a book that I ve been looking forward to for a year I was over the moon for Planetside last year It was the right book at the right time and resonated with one of my all time favorites Old Man s War I d still like to be a fly on the wall if Carl Butler and John Perry ever get together for drinksI enjoyed Spaceside a lot but it took a bit longer to get into gear or perhaps into the proper military cadence than Planetside We don t get into the thick of things nearly as fast but once we do the race is certainly onThis could be the end of Carl Butler s story Or it might not be Even if I don t get to take another trip into Butler s head I hope to see much from the mind of his author

Michael Mammay has delivered yet another fantastic sci fi adventure with SPACESIDE Carl Butler is back from Cappa and his life has changed significantly since the fateful decision for which he was set up to take the fall Now retired Carl is divorced drinking heavily and running as a security advisor in a corporate rat race An encounter on the mass transit has Butler wondering if his PTSD symptoms are getting worse or if he really is seeing human Cappan hybrids on the bus when his boss calls him in for a top secret assignment to find out how a competitor was hacked Butler is following a trail when his only lead ends up dead and the police seem certain the Scourge of Cappa had something to do with it Butler s life only gets screwed up from there as the ghosts of what he did on Cappa come back for a reckoning and he is forced to make one trip planetside that will probably end with Butler being flushed out an airlockHoly moly was this good Carl Butler is a defeated guy who really just wants to be ignored and collect his paycheck so he can buy whiskey but this mystery piues his curiosity and leads him back to the soldier still lurking inside The story unfolds at a great pace and like the last act of Planetside hits fast and hard in the last third of the book with a climax that leaves you a little stunned Really looking forward to the third book These have been one hell of a lot of fun to read
