Monster Hunter Nation

Dead Six eARC, and an odd request for the Monster Hunter Nation

The Early Electronic Advanced Reader Copy of DEAD SIX is out now: http://www.webscription.net/p-1484-dead-six-arc.aspx  I hope you like it, because we had a ton of fun writing it. The paperback releases September 27th. http://www.amazon.com/Dead-Six-Larry-Correia/dp/1451637586/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1312387293&sr=8-6

As many of you know, my co-author Mike Kupari is currently serving in Afghanistan.  He is an Air Force EOD (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) Tech, but is attached to an Army unit. For those of you that don’t know what EOD is, think of the movie Hurt Locker, only without all of the glaring technical errors, psychological issues, and homoerotic wrestling matches.  

Mike will still be in Afghanistan when Dead Six releases.

He has sporadic web access, and can’t really see the reviews that are coming in for the ARC. Some pages work fine for him (like WTA but he can’t get to Facebook or my blog for example), though his e-mail works.

So here is the special request part. Since Mike’s first book just came out, and all new authors are dying to get feedback on their first book, I want to compile a bunch of reviews and then send him a big list of them.  So if you’ve read the eARC, please post a review on the Baen Webscriptions page or post it below in the comments.  Details are great. It goes without saying that the comments section of this post has a major SPOILER ALERT.

Go ahead and be honest in your review, even if you didn’t like the book. I’ll be honest too… I’m totally going to cut and paste the good ones but I’m going to edit out all the negative comments before I e-mail it to him.  The dude has got enough stuff to worry about. 🙂

Larry. . . will he be in the Rockpile for Christmas ? If so, he’s eligible for a Baen Bulk drop on him, or we can organize the Nation to do the same thing, only larger. . .

I will totally get me a copy of Dead Six and will gladly pass on a review. Its because of guys like him that I get to read such awesome books, like the MHI series.

I got to meet both you and Mike at SHOT Show this year – thanks for being such great guys! I’m about half way through the book and loving all of it. The references to conspiracy theories are great and I’m looking forward to all the new parts of the story that are different from the original on THR. Keep up the great work!!!

I absolutely loved Dead Six, even though I had already read the Welcome Back, Mr. Nightcrawler thread at least twice. It may still be the same basic story, but the changes put into Dead Six made it even better. As far as technothrillers go, I’m not usually a fan of them anymore. Guys like Tom Clancy and Clive Cussler kind of bore me these days. I read it all before. Only a few authors of this genre can still hold my interest, but you guys beat them all. Dead Six is unique and refreshing, with plenty of action and humor,… Read more »

In my humble opinion the authors of ‘Dead Six’ took a story line from the ‘deep fat fried fantastic covered in awesome-sauce’ to a whole new level of literary feeding frenzy. The edginess and flaunting flare of a fledgling story is now the refined, dry aged porterhouse adventure we can sink our imagination into. The texture, taste, and real world feel of what a true story teller can present goes above and beyond. Kudos! My appetite has been whetted, gentlemen! Second course, please?

I was a little uncertain going into this book if I was gonna like the style or not. I really enjoyed Monster Hunter and Grimnior, but I wasn’t so sure about a Clancy’esque techno triller along with a new co-author. It turns out I needed have worried the style and content of the book were handled wonderfully. It is certainly different and refreshing in comparison to Monster Hunter, but at the same time consistent and very much of the style I liked from other books by Larry. The duel and dueling perspective characters provided an excellent venue for the two… Read more »

I have read the sample chapters several times now, and I’m totaly hooked I can not wait for the book to come out! I love the dual view point and can’t wait to read how these two butt heads They are both stong characters with very likeable personalities Lorenzo and Valentine make it had to choose a favorite so for now I will say they both rock.It will be a treat to see where this book leads.

My first exposure to y’all’s writing was the Welcome Back thread on THR. I enjoyed it so much that I began following Larry’s career, even though I hated monster books at the time (love them now, thank you Mr. Correia). Dead Six was more polished, more refined, better executed, and I enjoyed the ever living, ever loving hell out of it. That being said, I think I had more fun with the original. It had a quirky, serious-but-trying-really-hard-not-to-laugh quality to it that Dead Six lacks. I didn’t get the same “so there I was…” feel from D6, though I realize… Read more »

Rip-roaring awesomeness! Could not put my ereader down. It took me a bit to get a clue that the story was flipping between two POV, but that’s because I lack attention to detail. Going back and forth made the story richer. So-what is/was the deal with the scarab? What did you do with Val? Who is the guy that made Big Eddie scared? Inquiring minds and all that! One kid just got back from the Rock and another one is on his second tour. You stay safe there, Mike. And if you have to go to Kandahar area and run… Read more »

I first discovered what would become Dead Six through the original Welcome Back Mr. Nightcrawler thread on THR, by way of Larry’s blog. I didn’t sleep for two days because I was addicted to the story. When I found out Larry and Mike were publishing this story, I was thrilled. Anyway, I just finished reading the e-ARC, and I have this to say: I am a hardcore thriller junkie, and am not easily impressed by new entries into the field. I’ve read pretty much every Tom Clancy novel (the ones he actually wrote, not the cruddy ghost-written stuff he’s putting… Read more »
