Roberson, Chris -- The Dragon's Nine Sons
Cold War in Space, only it's the Chinese versus the Aztecs. I didn't
find the setup particularly plausible -- Buckell did a better job of a
modern Aztec civilization with full-on sacrifice jones. The characters
all hovered between idiocy and following the script, so I can't
recommend it on that count either.
