Now, a few months ago, if you’ve been a follower of this website that long, you may recall that back in October 2010, Commissar Ploss gave us the cover at for Dan Abnett’s Embedded. With the release of the novel not too far away, Angry Robot books have provided us with a few sample chapters, which are looking interesting. Check it out for yourself:
The blurb for Embedded is as follows:
The colony planet of Eighty-Six looks as dull as all its fellow new worlds to veteran journalist Lex Falk, but when a local squabble starts to turn violent, and the media start getting the runaround from the military high command, his interest is seriously piqued.
Forbidden from approaching the battlezone, he gets himself chipped inside the head of a combat veteran – and uncovers the story of a lifetime. When the soldier is killed, however, Falk must use all his resourcefulness to get back home again… and blow the lid off the whole damn thing.
