My new novel Swords of Exodus is out now!

Swords of Exodus is shipping. It should be in book stores everywhere this week.

I cowrote this with Mike Kupari, who is an EOD Tech in the US Air Force, and all around awesome guy.

Swords is the sequel to Dead Six. If you’ve not read Dead Six, you really should, because it is a great book. It’s weird. This series is by far my least well known, but that’s because I’m known as a fantasy writer, and D6 is shelved off by itself in fiction with the thrillers. So read Dead Six, because it is excellent. I promise that you’ve never read another coauthored book like this one. It is like dueling banjos, but with guns.

Free short story from Baen set in the Dead Six universe.
BOOK BOMB! Peter Grant's Walls, Wire, Bars & Souls

Picked up a copy this past Sunday and finally found time to dive into it last night. In fact, it kept me up late reading it. 🙂 I loved Dead Six and have been patiently waiting for SoE to come out.

I hope you and Mike Kupari have more books in mind because this series really does need more exposure. Lorenzo and Valentine have become two of my favorite literary characters and the back and forth POV storytelling makes it hard to put down.


I’ve been looking forward to this book since I was halfway through Dead 6!

Hi Larry, First the obligatory ‘I’m a huuuge fan and own all yer books n’ stuff’ message. I hope to have funded many minis for your army. I do have a theory about the Dead Six series and why it isn’t quite as.. erherm… uhh… ‘great selling’ as the other stuff. Simply put- the main characters don’t fit really easily into the protagonist mold. Makeda from “Instruments of War” is similar- they sorta have an honor system, kinda, ish (Makeda really has one) but it doesn’t really fall on the side of ‘good’. They’re like good-ish sort of bad guys,… Read more »

Loved Dead Six even more than your fantasy. Been looking forward to this sequel.


Woot! I wanted this in dead tree form and now it’s on its way. Thanks for all the typing!


I think that the best, most interesting characters don’t fit any particular category and or mold. They’re what I call morally grey. Well in Franks case it’s a decidedly darker shade of grey.

SF nut

It was sitting on my desk in an Amazon envelope when I walked in today. $6.89 total (amazon prime, free shipping)

Kick ass!

Finished reading the Kindle version yesterday. GREAT story. Fun, violent, and had a nice touch of the supernatural in it. Can’t wait for the next one

I’m only about midway through the new book, but there was something at the beginning of it that just seemed off somehow. It was that scene in the airplane where he pulls the pin on the grenade, and demands answers. I don’t know why, but it just seemed wrong somehow. I had a similar thought with a part in the first book that rubbed me the same way. You spend the book building up your character as this unstoppable killer, and the other author does the same with his character. The two of them meet in a fight, and… it’s… Read more »

I have to echo the 1st comment, I liked the beginning to an extent, understanding the pressures of boredom and a lost relationship, paired with the despicable blackmail the other protagonist is under, but the lack of serious resistance to cold blooded murder is beyond me. I have started and stopped reading this at least 10 times in the last 2 months, whereas I buzzed through all 3 of the magic invasion series in less than 6 days of reading. I find myself wanting to see Gordon and Alders crushed like the bugs they are understanding all the while that… Read more »

I like all of your books but I think the Dead Six series represents your most skillful writing. Writing a co-op project may cause both of the authors to pay more attention to plot and pacing (not that I have any complaints in re your other books) and overall…I don’t know…fit. The books are tight, the stories mesh well. I’m already waiting for the sequel.


Larry, you dog. Isn’t the sequel ready yet? I read Dead Six and Swords in two days time. I am ready to find out how Val takes apart Underhill and how Lorenzo recovers to fight again. Come on di di mau.

BTW thanks for inserting the wonderful world of double action revolvers into your stories. There is a place for those after all.


Write more faster. Get published and released and take my damn money.


I just finished it and I have to say you are a bad, evil man. Great book.

I’m sorry, I just came here to vent–tearing my way through Dead Six and loving it, looked up Swords of Exodus on Amazon to order the Kindle version, and made the mistake of reading one of the reviews, in which the reviewer praises the novel and then completely spoils the ending, no warning whatsoever, right in the middle of the body of the review. What an asshole; I know its my fault for paying attention to goddamn Amazon reviews, but still, what is wrong with people? Looking forward to it nonetheless, love the series, keep it up Larry and Mike!
