Bolo anthologies

I picked up three Bolo anthologies from a used book store last week.  Bolos are huge tanks--well-armored and with high-powered weaponry--with AI.  They were created by Keith Laumer, but like the Man-Kzin Wars anthologies, other authors have joined in.

Stories in volume 1 (I know there are at least five anthologies) include Lost Legion by S. M. Stirling, The Ghost of Resartus by Christopher Stasheff, Operation Desert Fox by Mercedes Lackey & Larry Dixon, and As Our Strength Lessens by David Drake.  These anthologies were published by Baen, as are the Man-Kzin Wars anthos, and the Christopher Anvil reprints.
