Starfist: Double Jeopardy by David Sherman Starfist: Double Jeopardy, Paperback / softback (October 2010)

The thrilling pace of the Starfist space epic quickens as the explosive series rockets to dazzling new heights, packed with the hell-for-leather action only two battle-hardened and decorated combat vets like Sherman and Cragg can provide.

Camus by David Sherman Camus, Hardback (October 2008)

History (much like his contemporaries) has tended to judge Camus harshly--as mediocre philosopher, conflicted man of the left and, worst of all, apologist for French imperialism. Yet, as David Sherman argues in this rewarding new study, a sensitive reading of the entirety of Camus's writings reveals both a power and unity of philosophical purpose.
