Description: From the back cover
Decades ago, Starship Troopers captivated readers with its vision of a future war in which power armored soldiers battled giant insects on hostile alien planets. Today, with the success of Iron Man, Halo, and Mechwarrior—and with real robotic exoskeletons just around the corner—the idea of super-powered combat armor and giant mecha has never been more exciting and relevant.

Imagine power armored warriors battling at the bottom of the sea, or on nightmarish alien worlds, or in the darkest depths of space. Imagine armor that's as smart as you are, armor that might keep on fighting even after you're no longer willing... or able.

The possibilities are endless, but some facts remain constant: The soldier of the future will be fast. The soldier of the future will be deadly. The soldier of the future will be ARMORED.

MSF Watercooler review: April 25, 2012
Armored is a collection of short stories dealing primarily with powered armor of one variety or another. The stories run the gamut from heavy military action to agriculture (really). While they were not all to my taste they were all well written and even the stories I did not like brought interesting concepts into my consciousness. I would heartily recommend this compilation to anyone interested in military science fiction and powered armor in particular.
