"Futurology Part 2: The Once And Future Hero"

Steve Jobs
by Walter Isaacson, Simon and Schuster, 2011

Check out the Amazon page for this book.  Read the quotes labeled: Amazon Exclusive: A Q&A with Walter Isaacson

by Allan Cole, Chris Bunch, Wildside Press 2011

Our Hero, Sten, escapes the life he was born to by refusing to just do all he can do.  He just won't quit. 

The Wolf Worlds
Chris Bunch, Sten #2, Allan Cole, Wildside Press 2011

Trying to be a good soldier and just do his job, however impossible it looks given his resources, Sten discovers he's failed even though others think he succeeded.  So he just keeps doing more than he can until the task set him is fully accomplished.

The Court of a Thousand Suns
, Sten #3, by Chris Bunch, Allan Cole

Sten gets a big promotion, set in charge of the Emperor's own Guard.  This turns out to be not so good a thing, from a soldier's perspective.  Interstellar Court intrigue is no place for a soldier.  The Court learns that the hard way. 

Gambler�s World
by Keith Laumer Prologue Books, 2012

There are omnibus and other re-issues, all sorts of choices, but I do recommend ALL Keith Laumer titles.

Sandcats of Rhyl
by Robert E. Vardeman, Amazon 2012

And again, I do absolutely recommend all Vardeman titles, various series, wide ranging subjects by an author who earned his runaway popularity the hard way.
