The Bug Wars

The Bug Wars by Robert Asprin (New English Library, 1980) [first published St Martin’s Press, 1979] Beneath the horribly pulpy title lies a well-measured, almost cerebral piece of military SF. All the characters are insectoid, yet they engage the reader every bit as much as Earthly protagonists would, their committed hive mentality evoking western perceptions of Asian soldiers.
