Review of Spellbound from Elitist Book Reviews

And if you want to try to buy it try this nifty link that looks like crap, won’t appear as a stupid button no matter what I do, but gets me an extra couple of percent on an Amazon gift card so I can buy more Warmachine.

The TinyMCE editor in WordPress strips out iframes (or at least marks them up as plain text). There’s a workaround here: http://wordpress.org/tags/iframe

Larry, are you playing Warmachine? I did see that you said you were stockpiling minatures, but I figured it was just the L5R ones.

I have an issue with the reviewer when he said that there was not enough tragedy in Spellbound. I thought that there was plenty in the book. The scene at the farm between Sully and Hammer just before the big battle had me choked up. I don’t want to spoil it for anyone who hasn’t read it but it was an emotionally charged and quietly tragic scene all by itself.

I don’t know if this will help, but I had a problem on my WordPress blog in which people posting with “Author” permissions couldn’t embed things in iFrames.

I solved it by upping my permissions to “Editor”.

Not sure if you have the same issue, but I hope it helps.

A post on the issue I encountered is here: http://www.aaronmbrown.net/blog/2010/12/bug-not-feature/

I’ve purchased all your books (From Baen Books, when possible.) and enjoyed every one of them.

Is it possible that Miss Hammer is related to Mike Hammer, the NY PI whose exploits were chronicled by Mickey Spillane? The time frame seems about right for a young Mike.

Also, while Miss Hammer spells her name with two “m”s, is it possible that her father was the famous lawman Frank Hamer that pursued the Clyde Barrow gang? (Names change). If it was the Barrow gang he was after, was Clyde a Heavy? It seems to fit since Clyde carried a cut-down BAR and the recoil must have been fierce.

I’m looking forward to your next book.

(Just as a demographic point, not all of your readers are young or even middle aged. I’m a 61 year old mining engineer that really appreciates your accurate descriptions of firearms.)

Well here’s my two cents worth…As soon as I fount MHI and read the first sentance, I was hooked. I have picked up every one of your books that I can find (multiple times). I appreciate the clashing cultures and the depth of description while bullets blades nukes and napalm are flying around. Your books do not feel typical/ordinary/normal. As opposed to the plot driven, time killing drivel that I admit to resorting to (everything has a place). On a personal note: As great an author as I think you are…you don’t write fast enough…so I cuss at you weekly. Literally. All in good fun of course but still, I like your books enough to act like a typical steriotypical modern entitled american wanting instant gratification in this regard. In so far as this applies to your latest book…I loved it. Feel free to write a few more in all of your “universes”. I will in return vow to pitch in and pay you for your time. and cuss at you some more… Am a Big Fan. (Green :-) with Horns of course)

Spellbound has reached Australia bookshops and now graces my bed time reading pile.
