    The paperback for DEAD SIX will be releasing in September, but this is the early advanced reader copy e-book, available a few months early. This is the book that began as the epic online fiction here on THR, Welcome Back, Mr. Nightcrawler.

    This version is edited, polished, (it helps that I wrote 2 novels between that thread and writing Dead Six), and about twice as long. And it is a real live book. :)

    Mike Kupari, THR-name Nightcrawler is currently in Afghanistan and won't even be in the country to see his first book get released. He's busy defusing bombs. (Mike is an EOD Tech).

    I hope you guys like it. Personally, I'd love to see D6 hit the bestseller lists, because having a book that was actually written on a gun forum show up on there would cause the literati elite's heads to explode. :D

    Have my paperback copy already ordered on Amazon (for some reason, I can't stand reading a book on a computer screen...go figure) along with the next MHI installment and the next in the "Hard Magic" series.

    Rotty, if you follow that link above you can see the original fiction thread. Basically Nightcrawler started writing a little online fiction bit. I jumped in and wrote something from another character's perspective. (this was before I was a published author). It kind of spiraled out of control from there, but turned out as a really awesome story.

    Last year we took that mega thread, cleaned it up, fixed it, made it better, made it a lot bigger, and then sold it to Baen Books. So this went from an online fiction thread on THR to a novel from a major publishing house.
