    Larry, if you don't mind me playing pretend mod for a minute...why not make a separate thread on the Monster Hunter RPG? Seems like a separate accomplishment to me, but it's buried on page 4!

    I'm unfortunately still halfway through Alpha, so I haven't gotten Legion yet, but your stuff is really good. And this is coming from someone very picky about books.

    Thanks, Larry.

    I wanted you to know I truly enjoyed reading "Dead Six" as it developed here on THR. That was a very unusual and interesting way to write a novel with each author writing from a different perspective. And to more or less do it on the fly! Awesome! It's the whole reason why I bought "Dead Six".

    I thought much of the editing was well done for the published version, though I wonder about some of the changes and omissions. Some were obvious, but some less so. To say I enjoyed the read would be a gross underestimation. Very well written, very well plotted.

    Though I enjoyed the joke, I hated to see Precious get shot. I love poodles.

    How is this any different from the Zombie survival guide, which wasn't allowed to be discussed here??

    judging by the cover (dont do it!) the Zombie survival guide was actually more useful. It was a basic survival guide that instead the natural disaster or terrorist was changed to zombie. The zombie survival guide is actually useful to get people thinking about survival in a fun way. this appears to be a sci-fi book about killing monsters..... Big difference and way more THR....

    How?

    Because we knew him before he self-published the first MHI book and sold us a bunch of them. Autographed, with a patch included.

    Sheesh... Still with this? Wow. I sure am glad you are able to define what is "way more THR" than the moderators that run the place.

    As for the Zombie Survival Guide, maybe if Max Brooks had been a THR member then maybe all of his gun advice wouldn't be complete crap. Heck, on that note then the military scenes in World War Z wouldn't have been completely ridiculous too. (looking at you, Battle of New York, that I could have won with a single bulldozer) :D

    But hey, this gives me a chance to say that there are only a few days left on the MHI Employee Handbook Kickstarter! http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/herogames/the-monster-hunter-international-employees-handboo
