The Monster has landed: MHI is in stores now

    The little internet gun-forum self-published novel that could, is now available in bookstores everywhere from Baen books.

    If you haven't followed the saga of Monster Hunter International, it was written by a THR member, inspired by a TFL thread on horror movies lines, filled with accurate gun usage, proof read and edited by THR mods and members, and then self published and sold mostly on THR.

    The little POD version of this novel did fairly well and got onto a best seller list in April '08. Baen Books, publisher of extreme awesomeness, came along and bought the rights to MHI, and it is now available everywhere.

    This is the gunblogosphere handbook of monster killing goodness, and it has gone mainstream. :)

    Thank you THR, I couldn't have done it without you. :D

    Woo Hoo!

    Larry, congratulations, man!

    That is most excellent.

    I'm looking forward to scoring a copy of my own.

    Maybe two. One of them might need to be autographed.

    I pre-ordered a copy a week or so ago from Amazon, no idea if it has come in yet, as I'm out to sea at the moment.

    I read the first seven chapters online, and was hooked, so had to buy the book :) Can't wait to finish it.

    Don't hate me, Larry, but I just bought three copies for my library.

    Hopefully some of our patrons will buy their own copies when they find that all our copies are checked out... .

    Congrats. Baen books has been taking up more and more shelf space in my home for years.

    I'll pick it up.

    Any word on the publication date of MHI2?

    My GF went out and bought the paperback edition even though we have the POD version (and patch, thank you Larry :) ) and immediately sat down and reread it.

    Please keep writing.

    Punchdrunk, same, except for small editing problems I missed in the first one.

    Jim, no date on 2 yet, but the rough draft is done and sitting on the publisher's desk.

    And I've kept writing. I've finished 3 books since MHI, and I'm going to try and get them all published. The Grimnoir Chronicles is an alternative history 1932 in a world where magic began to appear in the 1850s. Dead Six is a thriller based on the Welcome Back Mr. Nightcrawler mega thread from here on THR written by me and Nightcrawler.

    The opening to your novel sounds reminiscent of Fight Club or Wanted but with monsters instead of people in the future. If its the mix of Fight Club (working guy in an insane situation elevating him beyond his imagination) and Sanctuary (random monster hunting, kinda like Slash Hack comics). It sounds quite good and I shall consider it greatly for purchase... now to cash my paycheck.
  17. Anyone have some links to a little more background on what this is all about?

    Dead Six!

    Ok, everybody chant:


    Oh man, I hope Dead Six gets published! In fact, I hope it ends up a ten-volume set. :D The "Mr. Nightcrawler" threads are some of my all time favorite reading.



    My copy of MHI will be waiting for me in the mailbox when I go home to Belfair Friday. Not gonna be sleeping this weekend.... :)

    Correia & Nightcrawler: You guys rock!

    "I never did like that rule," I said as I bent down and drew my gun from my ankle holster, put the front sight on the target and rapidly fired all five shots from my snub-nosed .357 Smith & Wesson into Mr. Huffman's body. God bless Texas.


    I like what i readf so far.
