Yoon Ha Lee - Vezércsel
Egy ​képtelen háború megnyeréséhez hasonlóan képtelen eszközök kellenek. Mondjuk, egy ősi fegyver és egy áruló tábornok. Kel Cheris, a hexarchátus kapitánya az eretnekek ellen vívott csatában nem jóváhagyott módszert alkalmaz, ezért kegyvesztettséggel büntetik. A Parancsnokságtól azonban kap még egy lehetőséget, hogy kiköszörülje a becsületén esett csorbát: vissza kell foglalnia az ellenség által megszállt csillagerődöt. Ám az akció tétje nem csupán az ő karrierje, hiszen ha elbukik, a hexarchátus egész uralma meginoghat. Cheris minden reménysége a halott stratéga, Shuos Jedao – aki mégsem annyira halott, hogy ne segíthetne. Jedao egyrészről sosem vesztett életében egyetlen csatát sem, és az erődöt is jól ismeri. Másrészről azonban élete végén megőrült, és két teljes hadsereget mészárolt le – köztük a sajátját. A kapitánynak döntenie kell, megéri-e a stratégiai előny a vele járó veszélyeket. Mert Jedaóban talán még kevésbé bízhat, mint az életére törő ellenségeiben. A koreai családból származó író az amerikai SF új nemzedékéhez tartozik, aki a neves szerkesztő, Gardner Dozois szavai szerint „segített a zsánert a 21. században újrateremteni”. A Vezércsel a Locus magazintól elnyerte a legjobb első regény díját, de jelölték a rangos Hugo-, Nebula- és Arthur C. Clarke-díjakra is. „Lebilincselően érdekes katonai űropera. Kihagyhatatlan bemutatkozó regény.” – Stephen Baxter, az Antijég írója „Csodálatos és kegyetlen történet, amely bővelkedik spontán ötletekben.” – Alastair Reynolds Brit SF-díjas író

When the hexarchate's gifted young captain Kel Cheris summoned the ghost of the long-dead General Shuos Jedao to help her put down a rebellion, she didn't reckon on his breaking free of centuries of imprisonment – and possessing her. Even worse, the enemy Hafn are invading, and Jedao takes over General Kel Khiruev's fleet, which was tasked with stopping them. Only one of Khiruev's subordinates, Lieutenant Colonel Kel Brezan, seems to be able to resist the influence of the brilliant but psychotic Jedao. Jedao claims to be interested in defending the hexarchate, but can Khiruev or Brezan trust him? For that matter, will the hexarchate's masters wipe out the entire fleet to destroy the rogue general?

Hexarch Nirai Kujen orders Jedao to reconquer the fractured hexarchate on his behalf even though Jedao has no memory of ever being a soldier, let alone a general. Surely a knack for video games doesn't qualify you to take charge of an army? Soon Jedao learns the situation is even worse. The Kel soldiers under his command may be compelled to obey him, but they hate him thanks to a massacre he can't remember committing. Kujen's friendliness can't hide the fact that he's a tyrant. And what's worse, Jedao and Kujen are being hunted by an enemy who knows more about Jedao and his crimes than he does himself...

Kel Command gives her the opportunity to redeem herself by retaking the Fortress of Scattered Needles, a star fortress that has recently been captured by heretics. Cheris’s career isn’t the only thing at stake. If the fortress falls, the hexarchate itself might be next. Cheris’s best hope is to ally with the undead tactician Shuos Jedao. The good news is that Jedao has never lost a battle, and he may be the only one who can figure out how to successfully besiege the fortress. The bad news is that Jedao went mad in his first life and massacred two armies, one of them his own. As the siege wears on, Cheris must decide how far she can trust Jedao–because she might be his next victim.
