A Game of Battleships

Battleships

Toby Frost 

The fourth instalment of The Chronicles of Isambard Smith – Captain in the service of the British Space Empire.

In the 25th Century the future of the galaxy rests on a knife edge. The actions of one man could save the British Space Empire, or leave Earth at the mercy of deadly legions of ant-people. That one man is Captain Isambard Smith, and Earth is in a lot of trouble.

After blowing up a top-secret base, Smith and his crew deserve a rest. But their holiday is cut short when forces unknown destroy the robot convoy they were meant to be guarding. Smith finds himself in hot pursuit of a mysterious vessel that can pass through dimensions, incurring the wrath of the dreaded Grand Witchfinder of New Eden – which would be so much easier if his pilot wasn’t cowering under the dashboard and his ship wasn’t infested with man-eating toads.

Meanwhile, the Empire is gathering its allies to form a united front against alien tyranny. Unfortunately, the delicate negotiations have been entrusted to Major Wainscott, a man who knows no fear and very little about diplomacy or trousers. Once again, Captain Smith must summon all his courage to unite humanity behind the Empire. His quest will take him on a journey to face his greatest fears: from the depths of space, through Hell itself – and even to France.
