The basic idea of the anthology is there on the cover. Big ships. Blowing things up. It’s about large spaceships and starships, enormous and enormously powerful, in big futures where contention is rife. Will the future have anything like this? Who the heck knows. But the stories are fun.
Star Destroyers has an introduction by Tony Daniel on the idea of the battleship in science fiction. You can read it for free here.
