The summaries for "Ranks of Bronze" and "The Forlorn Hope" were removed due to lack of notability. Whta is notable about "Birds of Prey" and not those two books? David Drake himself is notable in the realm of military science fiction, which I think would permit the summary of all his books to available to interested parties.

Strangers and Lovers
According to David Drake's official web page (here or here), he did not write "the romance novel Strangers and Lovers, published in 1986." I've removed it, but I wanted to leave some breadcrumbs for others. :) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 23:22, 21 December 2007 (UTC)
The RCN Series
For David Drake's comments about the RCN series, see here. I've put some of this info into the article. (My take: Leary is a lot like the young Aubrey but with Maturin's interest in flora and fauna; Mundy is an "Aspie".) BTW, the next RCN book, Golden Harbor, is due Sept 2006 (in hardcover).

Changes made 13-Jul-2006
I've just finished a substantial reorganisation of the article. I've added some interesting information. OTOH, I've taken out some information, mainly because I couldn't see a good place to put it:
- that DD is a "former bus driver"
- that "Drake has a wife, a son, and various pets." (He also has grandkids, BTW.)
Feel free to edit this stuff back in. Please.
By the way, fans of Drake's work and of SF in general will find much interesting material on his web site.
"Tank Lords" and "Butcher's Bill" are both Slammers' universe, to the best of my knowledge. Tank Lords is not a novel, but a collection. I'll try to doublecheck, but if anyone beats me to it, go ahead. Michael Z. Williamson 220.127.116.11 17:41, 23 January 2007 (UTC)
