"Dr. Grordbort, maker of rayguns, rocketships and raspberry cordial presents a comprehensive tome of action and adventure from the heroes of Earth's armed forces as they seek to bring human civility to our solar system's uncouth denizens. Heroical exploits, mighty tanks, dazzling wave-weapons and more are all packed into a sumptuous volume that is sure to make your life at least 23.5% better than it was before!" -- p. [4] of cover

Summary
Advertisements, narrative, and other edifying materials craft a steampunk, alt-Victorian history wherein bold adventurers with rayguns (and other diverse futuristic inventions) save civilized society from the savage primitives of – for example - Venus. At the same time Broadmore doles out pulpy, splashy retro-thrills in this comedic send-up of British colonial sensibilities, he also cleverly critiques the grimmer aspects of the British Empire's view of its colonies and colonized. -- Description by Kimberly S. Burton
