Monster Hunter Nation

The Monster Hunter Files Anthology

For well over a century, Monster Hunter International has kept the world safe from supernatural threats small and large–and in some cases very, very large. Now, join us as MHI opens their archives for the first time. From experienced Hunters on their toughest cases, to total newbies’ initial encounters with the supernatural, The Monster Hunter Files reveals the secret history of the world’s most elite monster fighting force. Find out what happened when Agent Franks took on the Nazis in World War Two, or how the Vatican’s Combat Exorcists deal with Old Ones in Mexico. What takes place in a turf war between trailer park elves and gnomes? From the most powerful of mystical beings to MHI’s humble janitor, see the world of professional monster hunting like never before.

Featuring seventeen all new tales based on Larry Correia’s bestselling series, from New York Times bestselling authors Jim Butcher, John Ringo, Jessica Day George, Jonathan Maberry, Faith Hunter, and many more.

For a moment, I read one title as The Case of The Ghastly Sphincter and thought it was Harry Reid coming out openly as a ghoul.

As always Larry: Shut up and take my money!

Sweet back cover blurb. How hard was it to come up with/how long did it take you to write?

Whee! In time for my birthday!

Aside from the anticipation and the gratitude with which I acknowledge your dedication to getting the product out the door, I have to say that I would have also enjoyed another of your SHOT show reviews. Think you can pencil it in again for next year? 😉

No chance we could talk you into doing your own, much earlier, EArc release, is there.

Notice that’s not a question, just a recognition of reality from a very frustrated fan that wants. it. now!

I mean, this is the 21st Century already! Why do we have to wait for a publisher to have a slot open!

Digitarians unite! Break the delays! Gimmedats what we can pay for soonest!

“Small Problems” by Jim Butcher. Opening line “The floor needed mopping, and it wasn’t my fault.”

John C Wright
Guest

The Mantichore Sanction by John C Wright has the following opening line:

” When Her Majesty’s government decreed that he must murder his fiancée before New Years, Madhouse Harry thought it only reasonable. “

Ben

Looking forward to that one – my first thought was “a companion piece to Tim Power’s ‘Declare'” – I mean that as high praise.

Mike

Do want.

This book is certain to end with a heck of a bang!

Oooh….this sounds like fun! After you recommended Jonathon Maberry’s Joe Ledger series I picked up the first book. I’m about halfway through it, and I can see why you like his work. It dawned on me that you had mentioned working with him on an “Urban Allies” anthology story. The book was sitting around on my iPad waiting to be read, so I dug it out, skipped to your story, and greatly enjoyed reading about Agent Franks and Joe Ledger working together to exterminate demon-possessed ISIS terrorists! It’s nice to see your MHI universe expanding, and getting to read some… Read more »
