Summary

Ursis nodded soberly out the Hyperscreens toward the merchant ships, then turned to Brim. "Out there, Wilf Ansor," he brooded, "are real heroes of war. To fight from behind disruptors of warship is something anyone can do. One can always count on lucky shooting to save him from disaster, or heavy armor plate at least. But to face enemy with only black void and thin sheet of hullmetal separating you from disruptors, and then stay in formation, that is kind of bravery we Sodeskayans record in Great Books."

An Adventure

This a good story. It is a performance and the actors are very good. The story could be based anywhere, but in this case is based in space. It's about people embarking on a military mission which brings them together as a group, but inevitably, if it involves war, not all will make it through. Some good action events in the story and like any other story a big climax.

A Ripping Good Yarn

I have to say that after listening to "The Helmsman" every time I logged into my Audible account I looked to see if there were any other books published in the "Helmsman" series. After months of waiting, finally "Galactic Convoy" was posted.

I downloaded this book with great anticipation and set to for a marathon listening session, two days later and after some 13 hours of totally enthralled listening I was done. Bill Baldwin & Timberwolf Press have done it again, for sheer enjoyment probably the best Audible Science Fiction I have listened to date.

The main characters from the first book (The Helmsman) are all present and correct with a variety of the new that integrate seamlessly into the plot where the previous book left off. Bill Baldwin?s vivid imagination and descriptive ability, with the help of an excellent narrative cast put me right along side "Wilf".

As our hero "Wilf Ansor Brim" again forges his way through the galaxy in adventure after adventure, (which I found utterly addictive in every way) I was with "Friend Wilf" sharing his sadness and joy, visiting the worlds he went to and battled the leaguers right along side him. In a book I can ask no more than that.

This book is not a masterpiece of literature. However, if you like I enjoy a good ripping yarn that than entertained for a solid 13 hours then listen to this book. I have already checked to see if the next book is available, and unfortunately it?s not. (Take note Audible)

Great Pulp SciFi Fun!

Sure the "acting" can be a little stiff at times. But who cares! It's a ripping good yarn!

I have been hard on some of the bad acting and bad writing in other books sold on Audible (you should avoid Death Stalker like the plague), but the writing here is great fun and pretty tight. Be forewarned that the books in this series are occasionally predictable and kind of stiffly preformed, but the writing is fine and the plot is just good SciFi fun. Suspend your disbelief! Blow a credit! It's worth the adventure!

Excellent Read

Best if you had read "The Helmsman" by Bill Baldwin. Overall very fast moving book that captures your full attention. I listen daily on a 30 minutes ride to and from work. This book has been one that I have stayed in the car to listen to when returning home. If you enjoyed Baldwin's earlier book you should enjoy this one.

Love this book

I’m a truck driver so I love to listen to audiobooks while traveling down the road. I listen to book one and two over and over. I love the story and love it even more that it was done with a full cast. I wish the rest of the saga was put on audio. But I highly recommend The Helmsman and Galactic Convoy.

galactic convoy great listen

The story of galactic convoy as it is presented in this form is incredible the background sound effects and stuff and little extras like that make this story come to life

This is simply good old school Sci Fi fun

Along the lines of the Star Wars radio dramas from National Public Radio but with a bit soft R content. If you haven't already, listen to the first book "The Helmsman" before Galactic Convoy.

Not as good as the first one

I reviewed the Helmsman and said it was so bad that it was good-very entertaining. But in this second volume the horrible dialogue wears thin, and it isn't as much fun as the first book. The love triangle with Margo gets even more ridiculous. I'm sorry I wasted the time on it.
