ANDREWS, Keith William
   Technically a house name, though all titles here listed are in fact by US writer William H(enry) Keith Jr (1950-). The Freedom's Rangers sequence of military-sf adventures, whose heroes roam into various epochs to combat the KGB, comprises Freedom's Rangers (1989), Freedom's Rangers 2: Raiders of the Revolution (1989), 3: Search and Destroy (1990), 4: Treason in Time (1990), 5: Sink the Armada (1990) and 6: Snow Kill (1991). The first volume features a commando raid through time to kill Hitler; as some of the titles indicate, the targets thereafter vary. It may be that the course of real history has determined the progress of the series. Under his own name Keith has written two Battletech game ties (GAMES AND TOYS): Mercenary's Star (1987) and The Price of Glory (1987); Renegades Honor (1988) is another game novelization.
