Monster Hunter Nation

Monster Hunter Siege eARC available now and a FREE MHI short story!

There are two new things of mine available at right now.

The big one is the eARC* of my next novel, Monster Hunter Siege.
MHI Seige eARC

And while you are there the next cool thing (and this one is FREE) is another MHI short story called Bubba Shackleford’s Professional Monster Killers, and it’s the first ever story about the founder of MHI and his original crew. It is coming out in the Straight Out Of Tombstone anthology, but my story is one of the ones that shows up in the free sample chapters, which you can read here:

Straight Outta Tombstone

And if you like those, snag the rest of that anthology. It’s got some great authors in it.

Also Baen has recently made a deal with Privateer Press to carry the books that I wrote for them. These are great, but most of my readers are unaware of their existence: and

*eARC stands for Electronic Advanced Reader Copy. The actual book doesn’t come out until August.eARCs are the uncorrected page proofs which would normally only go out to reviewers, but a long time ago Baen discovered that fans loved to get their hands on books early. So they went ahead and made the eARCs available for sales.

In an ongoing series, eARCs are really popular. I actually earned out my advance for Monster Hunter Nemesis off of eARC sales alone before the book ever came out. People always ask how close the eARC is to the finished product, but that depends entirely on the author and what shape their manuscripts are in when they get turned in. I’ve never had to make any significant changes on any of mine.


Good Deal on Military Sci-Fi Book Bundle
The Bubba Shackleford story I wrote is online at Baen

Ah yes, another opportunity to throw more of my money at the International Lord of Hate .

Done, as usual (grin)



Now to go to my boss and call out sick for the rest of the day…


“That’s cool I guess.”


Started it last night. Really sad that (censored) is probably going to die.


Is that Holly on the MHS cover?

In the amazingly tiny chance that some soul who reads this, and likes Larry’s Monster Hunter series, or Hard Magic, and *hasn’t* read the steampunk dirty dozen that is Into the Storm, get off your butts and read it now. It is that awesome. You will thank me later.


Seconded. I gave it a chance when I was wishing I had more reading material from our esteemed blog host. That was money well spent.


I actually bought *Into the Storm* a few weeks ago, and it’s next on my list. I have no knowledge whatsoever about the *Iron Kingdoms* games (other than that they exist, and that Larry wrote some spin-off novels) but I doubt that will be a problem. I’ll have to try some *Dead Six* after that…


Pity I have to work today, but my night was short…

Really enjoying Siege!

Good one Larry! 🙂


Thank God for you. Sickest I’ve been in years, just finishing the Baroque Cycle again and Nowhither is still too much so… was nearing despair at finding something I can get into. But then I thought “Hey, isn’t Correia about due?” And sure enough, another awesome book everyone wants to read is here.


Loved it! Now I am dying for the next one!
Any idea when Monster Hunter Memoirs Saints comes out! I need my next hit man!


Purchased and read already. It’s awesome. Larry has more of my money. Hopefully he spends some of it buying match .308 and taking (remove name of firearm to avoid spoilers) to the range.

Lots more show, way less tell. Action action action. Really well done.


Just finished Into the Storm last week and almost finished Into the Wild today. I really enjoyed them and am looking forward to a third (or more)!


Bah! Damn you and your cliffhangers! Also, what’s the policy on spoilers here? I want to discuss the book, but I don’t want to ruin anything for anyone.


For the record….


@Larry, can one assume that the cliffhanger at the end of the book (Not the epilogue, the end of the last chapter) shall be resolved with Monster Hunter Guardian and is the reason why Siege had to be published before Guardian.
Really mad at you for this one, due to the nature of the threat (can’t say more without being spoilerish) and me being a big softie, of course.

Uhm, yeah, gonna need more, just finish ed the e-arc


Good stuff. Finished it yesterday.

( Typo note: “Destroyer” gets shortened to “Destroy” in the first few pages. I hate auto-defect. )


Your productivity level is a goddamn inspiration. (goes without saying I’m throwing all my money your way right now)


Working on my first re-read.

Another grand slam, Larry.


Just finished it. Now I’m waiting for the audio book version and eArc for Guardian.


Any word on the sequel to Son of the Black Sword?

Is that Holly on the cover?

Old Cannonballs

Cliffhangers are to get people to tune in next week for the next exciting episode; not to make people wait up to a year or possibly more to find out what happens next. What happened — did you have a contractual obligation to produce an MHI book and run out of time because you had so many irons in the fire, or did you get to a contracted for page count, and just decided to stop in the middle and call it a cliffhanger, or what?

Not happy.
