TOM STRANGER-FINAL-COVER (2)

 

Here is the publisher’s description:

Have you ever seen a planet invaded by rampaging space mutants from another dimension or Nazi dinosaurs from the future?

Don’t let this happen to you!

Rifts happen, so you should be ready when universes collide. A policy with Stranger & Stranger can cover all of your interdimensional insurance needs. Rated “Number One in Customer Satisfaction” for three years running, no claim is too big or too weird for Tom Stranger to handle.

But now Tom faces his greatest challenge yet. Despite being assigned the wrong – and woefully inadequate – intern, Tom must still provide quality customer service to multiple alternate Earths, all while battling tentacle monsters, legions of the damned, an evil call center in Nebraska, and his archnemesis, Jeff Conundrum. Armed with his Combat Wombat and a sense of fair play, can Tom survive? And will Jimmy the Intern ever discover his inner insurance agent?

It’s time to kick ass and adjust claims.

Adam Baldwin (Firefly, Chuck) performs Larry Correia’s madcap interdimensional tale of underwriting and space travel, where the only thing scarier than tentacle monsters is a high deductible.

That’s right. Adam Baldwin is playing Tom Stranger. I have an actor who worked with Stanley Kubrick voicing Wendell the Manatee. Adam’s got a great sense of humor.

Many of you may be familiar with the original Adventures of Tom Stranger, Interdimensional Insurance Agent, which started out as a series of short stories on this blog. It is the single weirdest, goofiest, thing I’ve ever written. It is kind of like a hyper violent American version of Dr. Who, only with more Combat Wombats.

The best part is that Audible is giving this out for free during the preorder and the first month, so grab it now. Please help spread the word. This project was a lot of fun.

This looks awesome, I can’t wait! Free is the best price, but I’d also happily pay money for what I’m sure will be hilarious entertainment.

A project that won’t come out of my Correia fund? It’s like Christmas only without a noun.

Well, probably a lot of nouns, but not a Noun.

Easiest click ever. Many thanks, Larry!

Larry and Adam, thanks for the free stuff. Free is good.

However, I must request you release release something I can pay money for. I’d like to know my money is being put to good use. As in, to buy fuel for a tank driving around Yard Moose Mountain. Or maybe ammo. That would be good too. ~:D

As a fan what’s expected of me to spread the word? This is a project I would pay for and have paid for as Larry has other exclusive audible short stories that I own. If I share it on my social media accounts is that enough?

Dang, Larry, you can’t really call yourself a D-list author anymore. Getting Baldwin as a narrator boosts you to at least C-list. Congratulations and looking forward to listening.

Also, your site appears to be eating comments sometimes.

“Larry’s career is in such bad shape he has to give away his stuff for free!”

Thomas Hewlett

“Moonbat”? I don’t know what that is, but I like it.

Doug Loss
Guest

“Moonbat,” sometimes also called “barking moonbat,” is a term if identification for the loudest leftists. It is (I think) a corruption of “Monbiot,” for George Monbiot, a particularly loud example of the type.

Thomas Hewlett

That’s kind of disappointing. I was picturing huge vampire bats erupting from the dark side of the moon and gobbling up astronauts.

Shawna
Guest

Moonbat always sounds like junk food to me, like some variation of moon pies, maybe. Like it belongs in the phrase “rich, chocolatey moonbat”.

Next time on Tom Stranger…!

You’re thinking of the Alien Space Bats (ASBs). Also known for pulling super- and un-natural hijinks in various alt.history threads so the participants can contemplate how history would’ve been different if the moon really *were* made of green cheese, or if everyone on Earth were Quantum Leapt into their own bodies as of 20 years ago (including currently deceased people).

Shawna

“or if everyone on Earth were Quantum Leapt into their own bodies as of 20 years ago (including currently deceased people).”

I want to read that book.

CCO

Wait, space vampire bats were a seriously bad monster on the original run of Dr. Who, during Jon Purtwee’s tenure, I think. Some planet had developed special spaceships with which to stake the vampires.

Ever see *Lifeforce*? *Dr. Who* may have had vampire space bats, but *Lifeforce* added naked Mathilda May. *Lifeforce* wins.

Sold. I see Audible is following the drug dealer and Baen sales model. First hit is free.

Professor Headbutt
Guest
And it is quite a successful model. That’s how I got here. As I wandered around the internet, I stumbled across all the politics/puppy hubbub. My reaction was, “if this Larry guy infuriates so many leftists, he must be doing something right.” Shortly after, I was preparing for a trip and looking for something to do on the flight, and I found out that Baen was offering the MHI ebook for free. By the time I got back from the trip, I was hooked, and immediately ordered “Vendetta” and “Alpha,” and away I went. And now here I am, participating… Read more »

But if Adam Baldwin is playing Tom Stranger than who is playing the President, Adam Baldwin?

Hmm. Normally I don’t like audio books but I am intrigued.

Fruitbat44

Cool. Hmmm . . . Combat Wombats? I’m probably missing a reference, but being that “Wombat” was the name of a long-out-of-service British 120mm recoilless anti-tank gun . . . well, there really is such a thing as a Combat Wombat. 🙂

richard mcenroe
Guest

The Wombat was also known as the Victoria Cross gun, because its enormous muzzle flash and back blast were guaranteed to draw a hail of posthumous medals and counter fire on its position.

Look up “Hodaka Combat Wombat.”

They were 1970s dirt bikes.

Ah! Thanks for the reference.

Pre-ordering this before you come to your senses and add an actual price tag.

So… Is this the super-secret project you have been teasing us about, or is there another one we need to be drooling for?

viktor

I saw that Son Of The Black Sword was $1.99 — what?!?!??! — so I got that too.

SirShades

With most of Larry’s stuff, if you buy the eBook from Amazon, the audio is available at a nice discount.

Wallbanger

Somehow I had missed this Tom Stranger series on the blog so I clicked on the Sample Chapters & Short Stories link hoping it was there, and it is! So is this a novella-zation/extension of the short stories or something completely new?

Old Cannonballs

Finally, after waiting and begging for years, I’ll find out how Tom Stranger survives the attack of the Balrog with his Combat Wombat still out by the swag table! O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!

Correia story, Adam Baldwin narrating, Wendel the Manatee, hyper violent Dr. Who, and ……its FREE????

You treat your fans well.

I joined Audible just to get this. Woo Woo!

hobanwashburne
Guest

This is all well and good (and thank you both) but how long must we wait until Adam gets to be Agent Franks on the screen? It’s a veritable crime against humanity to have to wait.

Julaire
Guest

He’s got to play Sullivan first.

hobanwashburne
Guest

Okay, let’s just say he has to be in a Correia story based movie right away.

JSF001
Guest

I picture him more as Harbinger. I picture Franks as a bigger guy, plus technically Agent Franks would probably be played by different characters as the series went on.

richard mcenroe
Guest

Casting Call for Franks: Wanted, male, mostly/occasionally white, large and athletic, foreboding demeanor, martial arts skills. Conjoined twins will be considered if good with velcro. Ability to growl in multiple languages preferred. Proficient with handling firearms. Capable of playing a physically intimidating killer devoid of compassion or respect for human life. Non-smoker.

hobanwashburne
Guest

Check, check, check, check, check. No on the siamese twin thing. Check on the growling and firearms. Looks like Baldwin is your man.

Shawna
Guest

“mostly/occasionally white” LOL

hobanwashburne
Guest

Well that’s the good thing about Adam Baldwin. Whatever he’s in is better because of him. Sure he’d make an excellent Harbinger. Just as long as he’s got plenty of screen time and great lines.

Adam
Guest

Yesss! Can’t wait.

Old Cannonballs
Guest

Who should play Franks? Call me a wide-eyed dreamer, but my vote is for Larry Correia. Or if he’s not available, maybe Brock Lesnar — look at this face:comment image — okay, both eyes are the same color, but contacts are an easy fix . Nathan Jones might be another possibility.

sarah

Excellent. One of my favorite authors narrated by Adam Baldwin. A double win!

[…] There is actually an audio book, in addition to (perhaps best of all), the item is actually today free for those who pre-order. […]

Damn, does this mean Baldwin is on’na your besties now? That he’ll be in and support some of your stuff? 😀 (Hopeful grin)
