Speaking of promoting Mike Cernovich, the Indy King, Vaughn Heppner, who with BV Larson and soon-to-be Castalia author David VanDyke is one of the three big dogs of military science fiction, recommends Mike Cernovich's GORILLA MINDSET as one of his three picks for Amazon's Powered by INDIE:
"GORILLA MINDSET is an awesome read for those who want to learn how to control their thoughts and thereby their actions. Mike Cernovich is a straight shooter who tells it like it is. In today’s world, that is a welcome relief."
If you liked GORILLA MINDSET, I can guarantee that you're going to like MAGA MINDSET: Making YOU and America Great Again. Now in paperback from Castalia House.

Also, I recommend Vaughn Heppner's books, particularly if you happen to be inclined towards men with large quantities of futuristic weaponry at their disposal completely failing to abide by Gene Roddenberry's ideal of non-violent interaction and achieving one's objectives through diplomacy, communication, and mutual understanding.

The big dogs if mil-sf are Drake and Ringo. Then there's anybody else.

And Kratman. Don't forget Kratman.

And Mad Mike, Dave Weber, early RAH, Joe Haldeman... If you want newer then then recent Castalia books are good

I was pretty sure he meant indy-SF. Heppner is king.

And yeah, don't ever forget Kratman.

You have no idea how many books these guys sell. They sell rather more than Drake or Ringo. Heppner is top 10 in SF. The other two are very successful authors, obviously, but they're not at that level.

Sounds like Quantum Mortis, which I agree with Nate about, is Vox's best fictional work.

By the way, forgetting Kratman get's you an automatic knife in the kidney, doesn't it?

Just wait until you read VanDyke.

I haven't gotten around to Heppner and Larson yet ... for reasons. I hope I get around to them soon ... for reasons.

Apologies for going off-topic: Vox, have you or any of your family, been adversely affected by the earthquake? I don't know exactly where it was in relation to you.

Vox, have you or any of your family, been adversely affected by the earthquake?

No, thanks, we're fine. Didn't even feel it.

I second the recommendation for Heppner and Larson. I really enjoyed Heppner's Lost Starship series.

How awesome is this. The Dark Lord has recommended my books. Many thanks. All I can say is, "MAGA."

After decades of watching our people snipe and spit at each other posturing, it's so nice to see a return to our ancient habits of intelligent cooperation. Everyone needs to look at Vox, Mike, Milo, and others. Look and learn!

Vaughn's Invasion series was pretty awesome. I listened to the whole series on Audible.

We all grew up loving those big old dogs like Drake and Ringo, and Weber's still one of the biggies, but we're some of the big new dogs.

Well, Larson and Heppner are. I'm more like a scrappy Jack Russell that refuses to go away. I'm hoping to have a breakout hit someday to lift me to their level.

All you have to do is look at the Amazon top 100 in sci-fi to see who is actually selling the most books. Judge for yourselves.

Love Kratman's work, but he just doesn't have the same level of sales. He doesn't sleep on a big pile of money from his book sales.

Blogger Minecraft Chuck October 27, 2016 7:58 AM  

Now I've got new names to look for. Thanks, everybody!

BTW, with all the comments about Weber (space opera, not mil-sf, imo), the final Honor Harrington book comes out next week. After 25 years, he's wrapping it up.

If you haven't yet, check out Peter Grant and Marko Kloos. Yes, Marko was a bit less than graceful last year, but his stories are good.

I never heard of the 'new guys'. I guess I am a couple decades or more behind on current mil sci-fi.
