The Double Spiral War

The Double Spiral War, Warren Norwood’s chronicle of interstellar combat is a powerful, graphically realistic epic on a vast cosmic scale.

When mankind left behind their old home to seek out new lands beyond the dark spaces between galaxies, they hoped to leave behind them the conflict and chaos that has been their heritage since they first spoke tales of their histories.  However, it wasn’t as easy as that. Even amongst alien species, mankind still found cause to war amongst itself. Several decades before, the Sondak Confederacy worried about the growing power of the United Central Systems, a group dominated by humans genetically modified to have a much longer life span.  As a result, they launched a war that waged for years tearing at both societies until finally they forced the U.C.S. to accept humiliating terms in exchange for peace. The Sondak Confederacy is complacent and unaware that the U.C.S. is on the verge of finally seeking vengeance for the loss of the previous war.  And in the churning wake of these two giants, all the races of the galaxy and the lives of many individuals shall be turned upside down.  But the question is whose vengeance is being sought? Is it that of a nation’s or could it be that of a single person?

This omnibus contains all three novels of the original trilogy – Midway Between, Polar Fleet & Final Command - all in one complete volume. This version has been edited and reformatted for your convenience.

About Midway Between:

Strategically located between the U.C.S. and Sondak, the Mathews System commanded space for a hundred-thousand parsecs in all directions. It was here, in the opening campaigns of the war, which two old enemies met once again in a deadly dance of maneuver and counterstrike. And it was here that two young lovers were torn apart by the bitter winds of war….

About Polar Fleet:

Ravaged by a devastating battle at the Mathews System, the forces of the Sondak Confederacy regroup to repeal the onslaught of the United Central Systems at a world called Satterfield. While three alien races toy with the balance of power, two young lovers are reunited amid the horrors of battle, and a proud Admiral risks everything to turn the tide of war.

About Final Command:

Aided by its newly formed Polar Fleet the forces of the Sondak Confederacy have turned the tide of battle against the United Central Systems. Now as an alien alliance alters the odds, Sondak’s brilliant, ruthless commander launches a brutal last-ditch offensive to snatch victory from the jaws of imminent defeat.

Praise for the Double Spiral War:

“Grimly exciting…It conveys a sense of a future and of other worlds that are different from anything we know here and now.” – Poul Anderson (1986, from the cover of the original printing of Final Command)

Chapter One of the thrilling Space Opera.

Product Information
File Size:
1.54 MB
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
