Peter Grant wins the 2nd Annual CLFA Award

My friend Peter Grant won the 2nd Annual Conservative Libertarian Fiction Alliance Award for his novel Brings the Lightning

I’ve known Peter for a really long time. We were both moderators on the The High Road way back when. He is a great guy and a darned good author. He’s actually the basis for the MHI character Priest.

So big congratulations, Peter!

Peter edged out Grunge in the voting. I won last year for Son of the Black Sword, so asked to be taken off the ballot (Originally my Tom Stranger was one of the finalists too) but I wanted John Ringo to stay on there. (yeah, saying that once you’ve won an award, and wanting to share the love and make room for other people so you’ll decline future noms, gets complicated when it comes to collaborations and you still want to see your co-author get some love) 🙂

Don't Forget to Nominate for the Dragon Awards

Going to have to give it a read. Not in my usual genre, but still looks interesting.

On an unrelated note, they found evidence of the Van Hellsing Institute’s early work:


As I read the article, I couldn’t help but think,”This is how the movie starts.”

Thanks for mentioning it, Larry! Much appreciated – and I’m honored to be following in your footsteps.

I read it based on his SF books. Not my usual interest, but excellent for a change of pace.

As a plus, the details were accurate.

I encourage folks to give it a try.

I read a lot of Louis Lamour 30 or 40 years ago, and Peter’s two westerns are right up there with his books. His background research is superb, and his books give a real flavor of what daily life was like. Plua, the details on weapons are fascinating.


Outstanding! And yes, Peter IS one of the good guys!


Congratulations to Peter! ^o^
