Good news

My buddy Larry Correia -- author, gun-nut, Merchant of Doom and fellow B-movie aficionado -- self-published a book some time ago.

That book was picked up by Baen publishing and is now ready for pre-order.

While I am still monumentally cheesed-off at Amazon.com, I can make a single-time exception to help a friend out: Monster Hunter International.

Buy it, read it, tell friends.

Oh, yeah. I give it 4.5/5 stars. (IOW, tied with my favorite John Ringo Legacy of Aldenata 4-part.)

Larry Correia said...

Thanks, man. We got into the 6,000s yesterday on the sales list. Which ain't bad for a presale in the first 24 hours.

John, only 4.5 and tying with one of the best series ever? Yeah, I'll take it. :)

It sounds interesting. Is it going to be offered on Webscriptions as an e-book?

Warthog said...

Dog, I think you can order that straight from Baen. Hit their site and check.

Martini said...

you could just buy it through baen webscriptions.net when it comes up there. I know I will. But I read lots of stuff electronically.

I'm really glad, Larry, because I can't really think of anything I enjoy reading more- I'm just admitting the possibility! :-)

I'm SO glad, Larry. I wasn't able to buy when you self published (and so missed out on the patch....), but finances are much better now and will pop over and pre order!

Congrats!

Ordered it already. Two, actually. I have a feeling I'm going to be loaning out one copy... like my current one.

One of you should go talk to John Ringo, and see if you can get his winged minions to sally forth...

Bury them in a pig pen. In fact, make it a policy that any Muslim killed in combat against the free world will be buried with pigs maybe they won't be so anxious to die for their cause.

I'm thinking Xiphos posted to the wrong thread, as burying copies of MHI in a pig pen really won't change anything, but I'll be glad to sell you more copies.

And as of today, Amazon.com Sales Rank: #4,642 in Books, which just illustrates the awesomeness of the gunnie blogosphere. Lawdog, Madogre, J. Shirley, Preacherman, and a host of others have helped me spread the word. Thanks guys.

What kind of containers do you recommend for pig-pen burial of copies of MHI?

Really short lengths of wide diameter PVC?
