Having seized power in India and cultivated a network of spies and yes-men who will do his bidding throughout Asia, genetically engineered and predestined ruler of the world Khan Noonien Singh is ready for expansion. Having experienced his first difficulty in politics (people), Khan hopes that joining forces with his fellow augments will expedite his dreams of world domination. Enter sibling rivalry…with biogenic weapons. The second volume of The Eugenics Wars tries to fit the wars themselves into the geopolitical events of the early 1990s, rather like stuffing a gorilla into a tuxedo. It doesn’t work out too well, but it’s still entertaining to witness.
- From History's Shadow, Dayton Ward. Another impressive and fun integration of ST canon and real-world history
- Assignment: Eternity, possibly my first ST novel, and another Gary Seven tale by Greg Cox.
