  1. I’m pretty excited about this. My story is about a veteran Hunter who quits MHI and goes freelance in Afghanistan, working for a Chinese mining company.

      1. Mike wrote Valentine. I wrote Lorenzo. But there was also a lot of cross back and forth writing in each other’s parts.

        1. Stop giving away the blend of herbs and spices! You’re like that dog on the Bush’s Baked Beans commercials! 😀

  2. I don’t know what’s better – the names or the descriptions.

    Definitely looking forward to “A Knight of the Enchanted Forest”.


    Dang, I am so oooooooooo ready for this! Will it be recorded for Audible, too? And by Oliver Wyman?

  4. A great way to build out the MHI universe by bringing in other authors to play in the MHI playground. Looking forward to it.

    1. Why wait? Get started now, then laugh at the folks lined up to buy their “limit 2 boxes per person” after the election.

  5. Larry has skilled and accomplished authors literally writing fan fiction in his universe, but he’s still totally not a real author.

  6. “Hitler’s Dog” by Jonathan Maberry (It is WW2 and Agent Franks really hates Nazis)”

    God didn’t melt the faces of the Nazis for opening the Ark of the Covenant. That was Franks.

    And if Dr. Jones knows what’s good for him, he’ll keep telling people his eyes were closed and he didn’t see nothin’.

  7. Larry, you have GOT to stop doing this. Even at Kindle prices I am not made of money! Can’t you take some work-ethic tips from GRRM or something?

    1. Five or six years per book? I think I’d get terribly bored (though I would also get a whole lot of minis painted).

  8. Man. I sure hope that I can get my wife into your books like I did with John Ringo’s books. Or I will be dead from blowing our book budget.

    I went back to college to get my PhD in accounting so maybe I can claim them as school work?

    1. Its tempting to think so, but I saw a non-staged colour pic of the High Command a few years ago. They were standing around waiting for something to happen before an event, all in their snazzy uniforms. It was before the war, so they were pretty happy and riding high.

      What a bunch of hicks! These guys were not Werner Von Braun, nuh uh. They were in the right place at the right time, riding the right coloured horse, by -accident-.

  9. Sigh. If you were a real writer, you’d have Scalzi and Jemisin contributing to your anthologies. Oh well, I guess you’ll have to make do.*

    *note: sarcasm

    1. If history is any guide, Scalzi might be able to pull out a readable story. If he had a decent editor, anyway.

      Nora would have the world eaten by the sky squids. That’s how she rolls.

    2. True story. During the Baen Road Show at DragonCon a couple of years ago, Ringo was talking about the Black Tide Rising anthology to a room full of enthusiastic fans (the Road Show gets a big room at DC). He’s going down the list. We’ve got so and so! Audience freaks out YAAAAAY! And we’ve got a story by this guy! HOOOORAY! And a story by this person too! WOOOOOOOOOT! And we’ve even got a story by John Scalzi! … … … (awkward silence).

  10. The height of joy and victory and the agony of waiting…

    I read the first paragraph to fast, I did not see the “I do not know the release date yet.”

    Wander through the many descriptions… and wonder when is it due out.

    “I do not know the release date yet.”

    Dang it.

    We hates waiting precious… we hates it.

  11. Well Larry, this will be the first anthology I’ve ever bought, the first book I’ve ever preordered, and the first book made of paper I’ve bought in several years. You’re a champion. I’m trying to get a friend to read these, but he decided to reread the Wheel of Time instead. It’ll be a while.

  12. Larry, you might mention to your editor that since your eARCs sell so well, it might be worth looking into offering pre-pre-orders.

  13. I need this. I wish I was a writer yet so I could contribute, even. So many ideas. Oh well, I’ll save them for the MHI pen & paper!
