ANOTHER Larry Correia short story this week? Destiny of a Bullet

I wrote a short story for this anthology called Destiny of a Bullet.

This is another Warmachine universe project, but like the other ones I’ve done for them I tried to write it in a manner that you don’t need to be familiar with the setting to enjoy the story. For the Warmachine fans, I’m writing about Kell Bailoch hunting down a Kossite former Greylord on behalf of the Kayazy. To the non Warmachine people, this time around I’m writing about a well known professional sniper/assassin, who is hunting down a the equivelent of a Siberian wizard on behalf of the Russian mafia. 🙂

It came out yesterday and I’ve already gotten some comments from readers who haven’t read my other stuff that I must be a shooter. Why yes. Yes, I am.  🙂  Because it is all about taking the shot against this wizard, I had to hearken back to the fundamentals of precision rifle class my shop used to offer. Never taught that one myself. I wasn’t even close to good enough. I was a pistol instructor! Long range rifle is hard! 😀

And as an added bonus, there is a Howard Tayler story in this one too. Howard wrote a mystery involving the world’s best magical mechanic (because somebody needs to keep the giant steam powered fighting robots going!). So now you know you really want it.

The boys at DTA teach a great long range rifel course. Well i guess now they call themselves Desert Tech. And their bullpup sniper rifel is a thing of beauty. No, honey, honest, i am taking a class, using a gun that can group at 3000 yards, for pure research for a book.
