A near-future Earth has shaken off the devastating colonization by alien Lokaran invaders and totalitarian rule by the alien's puppets, the Earth First party.
But now Earth is flung into galactic intrigue and war. The Lokaron empire teeters on the edge of a fratricidal meltdown and a cabal of ancient enemies hope to use Earth as a proxy to destroy the empire and rule over a new Galactic dark age. Now Captain Andrew Roark, the son of heroes of the rebellion and an officer trained in Lokaran space warfare tactics, joins with a highly capable Lokar who opposes the empire but wishes to see it transformed rather than destroyed.
Together they must uncover a conspiracy to control Earth, and then obtain the secret key to defeating it. Eric Flint. Flint Lights the Way to Adventure!

We were already set up to do it; now we would do it for them. Not that they were evil; they just insisted that we trade with them. By their rules, rules backed up by irresistible weapons. At first we tried to fight, but just as the Japanese, the Chinese, the Hindus and all the rest had learned, when the ones with the guns say "Let's trade! But worms turn, and just as had the Europeans a century ago, the Lokaron were going to learn a lesson from their victims, a lesson that they weren't going to like one bit Praise for Steve White: "Highly recommended Similar ebooks.

Below it was a dais of some sort, standing on a large gently raised mound that was covered in a dusting of snow. A soft light, coming from somewhere high above where the cavern was open to daylight, shone down on the runeblade. The icy prison hid some details of the sword's shape and form, exaggerated others. It was revealed and concealed at the same time, and all the more tempting, like a new lover imperfectly glimpsed through a gauzy curtain.

I'm only interested in books that actually stand up to real scrutiny. Probably not in this forum. But since you bring it up, I'd just point out that whether there were any fallacies at all is still controversial.
I just thought it was a good book for a contrarian.
It was for me, anyway, and I'm a contrarian. He rips all four of the biggies: Popper, Kuhn, Lakatos, and Feyerabend.
